A community stalwart has passed on.
|People’s National Party (PNP) confidant Clover Haye aka Junior has passed on.|
I penciled this with great sadness at the shocking news of the death of Junior, a veteran community stalwart and former bodyguard of former Prime Minister of Jamaica: The Right Excellent Honorable Michael Manley. The news of Junior’s death seemed to cast a dark shadow on all of the highlights of March 2017.
In coming to terms with the understanding that death is a certainty such thinking gave me the courage to reflect on the impact of Junior’s influence on our community. Junior has pioneered a number of innovative cultures in the district of Castle Kelly and adjoining districts. He introduced us to a full spectrum of lifestyles, like the powerhouse motorcycles. As for me though it was the classy Suzuki 385cc which captured my attention as a youth. With him, Karl and others he dazzled us with trailblazer vehicles and sparred with top notch affluent associates. Many of the youths at the time looked up to Junior as the trend setter.
Junior did not cease to capture our attention as he entertained us with the Count Haye Hi Fi on weekends along with reel-to-reel movies at the Count Haye Lawn. Certainly Junior has made his mark. He may not have been the favorite of all but his influence has its imprint.
May his soul rest in peace as he moved on to join his ancestors.
