Chairman of the Public Works Corporation Titus Francis says the entity has lost a stalwart with the passing of the Acting Manager Edward Labassiere.

Labassiere passed away Wednesday morning at the Princess Margaret Hospital.

He served as a senior engineer at the Public Works and then as Manager for a number of years before he was replaced by McDowall Paul.

Labassiere was recently appointed Acting Manager at Public Works following the sudden resignation of Paul.



Francis says Labassiere was a man who was dedicated to the job.
