PM’s tribute to Hal Bushelle


Share post:

Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley issued the following statement on the passing of Hal Bushelle:

Across our country, there are people who, with their warm spirit and welcoming attitude, enamour themselves to anyone who is fortunate enough to cross their paths.

Equally, there are people who, through their hard work and dedication, attain a level of longevity and respect that transcends all sectors and industries.

Hal Bushelle was a man who characterised all of these things. From his time at the After Dark nightclub, to owning and running Hal’s Carpark Bar, Hal was a mainstay in St Lawrence Gap and Dover for decades, bringing joy to all who ventured there.

The truth is though, he was more than that. Hal was also an example to us all, showing us the incredible value of treating everyone with respect, care and friendliness. While we will miss his exuberance and friendliness that helped give St Lawrence Gap and Dover its energy, his spirit will continue to inspire us all, no matter where we are across the world.

On behalf of the Government and the people of Barbados, I extend the most sincere condolences to the Bushelle family. His dedication and contribution to Barbados’ entertainment and tourism industry in particular, will never be forgotten.

May his spirit rest in peace. (PR)
