Untimely death leaves Weekes family in shock

When Everton Hamilton Weekes went to give a friend a ride home last night neither he nor his family thought he would not make it back.

The 42-year-old government messenger of Passage Road, St Michael was discovered in a semiconscious state at Oldbury, St Philip in the driver’s seat of a motor van at about 9:30 last night. He later died at the scene.

A police statement released earlier today said lawmen do not suspect foul play but they are awaiting the results of a post-mortem to guide their investigations.

“Somebody told us that on his way back down he started to feel bad and then this happen,” Weekes’ best friend Dave Quintyne told Barbados TODAY.

Weekes’ sudden passing came as a shock to his family, as according to Quintyne, they were not aware of any illness at the time.

“He was cool. He was a real nice person and he was quiet. We use to hang out. He loved his family. He wasn’t sick or anything that we know about so this is a shock to all of us. The wife [is] really shaken up about it too,” he said.

The late Weekes and his wife Allison were married for 14 years but her sister, who declined to give her name, told Barbados TODAY they had been together since their school days. Allison is said to be understandably shaken up.

“She is not taking it well at all… She went to the doctor and later on she supposed to take medication. She is very shaken up … She can’t take on nothing. She can’t take on no pain, nothing,” she said, adding that it was difficult to break the news to the couple’s 18-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son.

Weekes also leaves behind three siblings, one brother in Barbados and two sisters who reside overseas. (AH)

    Deepest condolences to the family. Reading this really sank deep because I knew Weekes when from working as a messenger at Attorney General. He was always patient, pleasant, polite and reliable.

    I pray that God would comfort his family at this time. Loss is always difficult and will always be difficult, but the suddenness of this will make it that more difficult for his family.
