Patsy Springer passes away
Former parliamentary representative for St Michael South East, Patsy Springer is dead.
Springer, who is said to have been in his mid-eighties at the time of his death, won the seat on a Democratic Labour Party (DLP) ticket.
He represented St Michael South East for one term from 1971 to 1976 when Barbados adopted single member constituencies.
After quitting elective politics, he became a very popular and effective speaker on DLP platforms. He was also a popular race horse owner.
Springer also managed the once controversial West Indian Hospital Sweepstakes before it went out of business.
He is survived by his sister, Ermie Springer and brothers Harry and Michael Springer.
