In a press release, the president, Alfred Mentore, and Members of the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) have expressed sadness at the passing of the distinguished Professor Aubrey Bishop who served as the Club’s patron since 1993.

In the memory of Professor Aubrey Bishop the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) will be hosting a Night of Reflection and Remembrance at the Club’s pavilion Lance Gibb and New Gardens Streets at 7:30pm tonight. The club is encouraging members and friends of the Club to attend as they reflect on Professor Bishop’s life with his family, relatives and close friends.

An elderly statesman, Mr. Bishop served with distinction on various committees of the Guyana Cricket Board and several sporting entities notably football. Even though he was not active for some time, his passing on Wednesday night last has left many in a state of shock at the Queenstown Club where for a number of years he has often given necessary advice and recommendations which has added to the upward mobility of the organization.

Professor Aubrey Bishop, a retired Chancellor of the Judiciary, leaves to mourn his wife Carole and their three children. On behalf of the President, Executives and Members of Demerara Cricket Club we offer sincere condolences to his wife, his children, family and countless friends.

May his soul rest in eternal peace.
