TCI Premier on the passing of the Honourable Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart

#TurksandCaicosIslands – January 5, 2020 – The Government of the Turks and Caicos Islands mourn the loss of Jamaican born, Caribbean Tourism Mogul, Honourable Gordon Butch Stewart who passed on 4 January 2021.

This loss is a Caribbean loss. We as a region should be proud of his achievements and what he has done for the Caribbean internationally and locally in the countries where he has invested.

The Chairman of the Sandals Group will long be remembered for his invaluable contribution to regional tourism through his home-grown brand and certainly for his leading resort here in the Turks and Caicos Islands: Beaches Turks and Caicos. I have had the opportunity to speak with and extend sympathy to the Deputy Chairman, Mr Adam Stewart. This is a huge personal loss for his family and our prayers are with them and the entire Sandals family, during this time.

May his soul rest in peace.
