Scores of Leguan residents said goodbye to ‘Lloyd’, the name by which PNCR Parliamentarian Winston Murray was well known on the Essequibo River island, in a ceremony at the St. Peter’s Anglican Church today.

Murray was interred in the Church’s cemetery just before 3 pm following tributes from the various administrative regions, close friends, and supporters, on the island of his birth. Under overcast skies, Murray’s body arrived at the island just before mid-day and was taken in a procession to the church for the service.

Following its conclusion, he was interred in the churchyard and six doves -representing the six races of Guyana, were released.

November 30, 2010 Guyanese turned out first at Parliament Buildings and then at the St George’s Cathedral to pay tribute to former deputy prime minister and PNCR-1G MP Winston Murray CCH who was remembered by political colleagues and friends as a patriot and selfless man who dreamt of creating a better Guyana.

Looks like Leguan Stelling
