The funeral of the late Agriculture and Fisheries Minister and Member of Parliament for Central Westmoreland, Roger Clarke, is now underway inside the St George’s Anglican Church, Savanna-la-mar, Westmoreland.



In her tribute Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller said, "Words are inadequate to describe the empty space left with the passing of Roger Clarke." "Clarke was a friend, a brother, protector and defender."



Clarke died on August 28 in the United States from a suspected heart attack while attempting to return to Jamaica after undergoing back surgery in Miami.



The government has accorded him an official funeral.
