Condolences to the Late Lloyd James Family

The Progressive Labour Party (PLP) have issued a Statement of Condolences on passing of Lloyd James.

“The Bermuda Progressive Labour Party joins the community in mourning the passing of former Member of Parliament, Lloyd James.

James was commonly remembered as a skillful St. George’s Cricketer and Cup Match Record Holder and was elected into the Bermuda Sports Hall of Fame in 2007.

In addition to being a skillful cricketer, James was a former member of the PLP and devoted his time to serving his community from 1980 to 1983 as Member of Parliament for Warwick East with running mate Walter Brangman. James was also appointed as Shadow Minister for Home Affairs.

To his wife, Betty, daughters, Joanne and Ria, siblings, former MP Elvin James, Leon, Winfield, Lillian and Cynthia, and his entire family, we express our heartfelt condolences and appreciate the indelible impact he left on our communities and the entire island.

Premier, David Burt, today expressed his condolences on the news of the passing of Lloyd James. “Lloyd James led a life of service; a humble yet dignified and true gentleman. His stride to the wicket struck fear in the hearts of many a Somerset bowler.

His dominance in the game of cricket was matched with his time in representative politics when he served the people of Warwick at a time when to do so on behalf of the Progressive Labour Party required unique sacrifice. Whether in business, education or sport, Lloyd James served with distinction.

On behalf of the Government and people of Bermuda I extend heartfelt condolences to his wife, Betty, daughters Joanne and Ria, as well as to his extended family and friends.”

The Minister of Labour, Community Affairs and Sports Lovitta Foggo issued the following after the passing of Lloyd James.

“On behalf of the Ministry, I wish to extend my sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Lloyd James. James was admired as an icon of our sporting fraternity. He was an outstanding cricketer who represented Bermuda with dignity and grace. Lloyd James was not only a great cricketer he was also an outstanding golfer and his poise on the greens was truly admired. Bermuda and our sporting community have lost a legend.”
