Anthony’s funeral set for Saturday

Historian and author Michael Anthony is set to be laid to rest on Saturday.

Anthony, of Long Circular Road, St James, died last Wednesday at the age of 91

A public viewing of his body takes place on Friday from 2-5 pm at Belgroves at 2-6 Belgrove Lane, Coffee Street, San Fernando.

The service for Anthony takes place on Saturday at 11 am at St Peter and Paul RC Church, Church Road, Radix Village, Mayaro, followed by a burial at Radix Public Cemetery. Enquiries can be made at Belgroves at 235-2178.

Anthony was the author of works such as The Games were Coming, The Year in San Fernando, and Green Days by the River, the latter which was made into a film. Former president Anthony Carmona, in a tribute, said Anthony’s work displayed “exceptional social outreach, incisive vision, compassion and humility.”
