A great Jamaican man laid to rest

The thanksgiving service for the life of Alexander Barclay Ewart, held at the University Chapel, Mona, yesterday, was permeated with much laughter, as family and friends shared their fond memories of the man who was considered one of Jamaica's corporate titans.

As Ewart's son, Simon, said of the man he called a great Jamaican man, "Last Wednesday, Jamaica lost many heroes - Barclay Ewart the athlete, scholar, businessman, philanthropist, community leader, statesman and loving husband."

Ewart died last week at age 76 after collapsing during his regular early-morning jog at the Constant Spring Golf Course in St Andrew.
