The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has paid tribute to the late Sir K Dwight Venner, the former governor of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB), who died on Dec. 22, 2016 in St. Lucia.
In a press release the WICB said Sir Dwight could be described as; “The quintessential supporter of West Indies cricket. He loved the sport and often admitted that to become a member of the West Indies cricket was one of his childhood dreams. He appreciated the challenges of the West Indies Cricket Board especially because he was such a dedicated regionalist”.
“He was an eternal optimist focusing on what’s next to improve the lives and livelihood of our West Indian society. He was most of all a humble, caring and very generous man,” the release added.
It said the entire board of directors agreed that “this region has lost a great leader but the anchor of his irrefutable legacy will forever hold in the annals of West Indian history.”
