DFP mourns passing of Bernard Agar Carbon

The late Carbon as he appeared in a DFP manifesto

The Dominica Freedom Party (DFP) has described the late Bernard Agar Carbon of Woodford Hill who passed away recently as a noble Citizen who has served his community, district, and country well.

He was an educator, agriculturist, community oriented individual and politician who will be remembered for a long time for his contribution towards nation building.

Mr. Carbon served in parliament as a senator and parliamentary secretary in the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Tourism under the Dominica Freedom Party administration from 1985 to 1990. He contested the Wesley Constituency on a Dominica Freedom Party ticket in 1985 and 1990. Although he was not successful on both occasions he remained committed to the people of his community

The executive committee and members of the Dominica Freedom Party extends deepest sympathy to his children, extended family, relatives, friends, the community of Woodford Hill and the Wesley constituency

May his soul rest in peace.

    DF Who? That party still alive nuh? R.I.P to him though :-|

  2. I remember him, as a little lad he taught me for a brief period around 1958/ 1960 in the Wesley Elementary School. One Sunday he got into an altercation with the father of a student who thought he in some way victimized his child.

    The physical fight took place on a Sunday, Carbon got his behind whipped; in his rage he turned on all of us the students of the school emphasizing that we were all “dunce, and cannot lear.” Whatever action the parents of village took between 2:00 PM and Monday morning, his face was never seen in the School ever again!

    No wonder he could not win an election in Wesley, because the same students he insulted by calling us dunce children who could not learn probably remembered him as I do. Wesley people do have long memories, we only forget on the day of our demise!

    My condolence to his family and his political friends and associates, The Freedom Party.
    Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
    May his soul rest in peace. Amen!
