Fellow Alumni:

With much sadness, we report the passing of well-known Central High Alumnus, Godfrey Chin. According to reports received today, Godfrey was found this morning lifeless on the floor of his Kitty residence back in Guyana where he had been spending most of his time over the past 2 years.  His humorous accounts of life growing up in Guyana are well documented in his “Nostalgia” series and for those on his email list, he can best be described as a prolific writer. One teacher at Central High who had Godfrey as a student once jokingly confided that because of his penchant for getting into mischief, she had predicted that he would “never amount to much”. However, she lived long enough to be proven wrong and was so proud of his achievements.

On behalf of all our Central High Alumni world-wide we offer our deepest condolences to his family and especially his three sons. We know that his is a voice that will not be silenced but will live on in his writings which he has left behind and the many humorous tales that we in the Guyanese community at home and abroad have enjoyed over the years.
