Statement from Acting Prime Minister Santia Bradshaw on passing of Dr. Denis Lowe

September 16th, 2022

“On behalf of the Government and people of Barbados, and the family of the Barbados Labour Party, I extend sincere condolences to the family and friends of Dr. Denis Lowe on his passing earlier today.

Dr. Lowe, a clinical psychologist, who served in the Barbados Senate before representing Christ Church East in the House of Assembly for two terms, was a faithful servant of the Democratic Labour Party, and was always one of its most ardent supporters and defenders. His robust use of colourful language on the political platform endeared him to many and ensured he was always one of the DLP’s most sought-after speakers.

While we operated on opposite sides of the political divide, in Barbados we recognize that there is much value in the Biblical injunction — there is a time and a season for everything under the sun.

We may not have agreed often with his political style or the policies that his party pursued, but we do believe that as a Barbadian, Dr Denis Lowe cared about his country; and at this moment of his passing, it is appropriate to set aside the cut and thrust of politics to say: “Thank you for your service to Barbados!”

To his sons Myles and Jaydee, his father and other family members, I extend thanks, on behalf of all Barbadians, for lending him in service of his country.

May his soul rest in peace.”
