Worrell was ‘life of the party’
On Sunday night, a seemingly healthy Edward Worrell was “playing around” with his nephew Curtis, having a good time. It was the last memory Curtis would have of his uncle who collapsed and died on the job yesterday morning at Ernst & Young on Bay Street, St Michael.
“He wasn’t sick. We were playing around the night before and the next morning I got the call that he passed away,” Curtis told Barbados TODAY at the deceased Worrell’s Apes Hill, St James home, where the 51-year-old security guard lived alone.
When a Barbados TODAY team visited the house today, Worrell’s sister, who asked that her name not be mentioned, and nephew Curtis were present, quietly remembering their loved one.
Curtis said he would always remember his uncle as one who loved life and people.
“He was the life of the party. Used to start a conversation with anyone,” he said, adding that Worrell was very religious and was a deacon at a neighborhood church.
The grieving sister commented that she spoke to her brother last week and “he sounded good”.
Worrell had one son, Joshua Worrell, who lives with his mother.
Worrell would have celebrated his 52nd birthday next month.
