It is with great sadness that I join with the Government and People of Dominica in mourning the untimely passing of Honourable Edward Registe, the Parliamentary Representative for the Grand Bay Constituency and Minister of State in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Business and Diaspora Relations.
Hon. Registe passed early this morning, Wednesday, September 1, 2021, at the Dominica China Friendship Hospital.
Edward Registe was a true friend and I am devastated by his loss. I will miss his kindness, warmth and compassion, his loyalty, his sound and reasoned advice in matters of governance and his steady leadership as General Secretary of the Dominica Labour Party.
Ed was committed to the development of people and the community.
For many years he served as President of Dominica’s National Youth Council, as a mentor and motivational leader for hundreds of Dominican youth. He also served as Chairman of the Grand Bay Village Council and President of the Grand Bay Credit Union for several years.
As Parliamentary Representative for the Grand Bay Constituency, he was attuned to the needs of his people and a passionate champion of their interests.
Grand Bay and Dominica have lost a stalwart leader who inspired and cared for many and devoted his life to service.
In the Cabinet, we will honour Ed’s legacy by seeking to implement the many programmes and projects he proposed to improve the lives of his constituents. We will remember him, always, for his sterling contribution to the development of Grand Bay and Dominica.
I extend deepest sympathies to his mother, Mrs. Magdalene Registe and the rest of his family, his constituents, and the many others who knew and loved him. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this difficult time.
May His Soul Rest in Eternal Peace.
