The ‘Joker’ to be laid to rest on Tuesday

Iconic local composer Winsford ‘Joker’ Devine will be laid to rest tomorrow, Tuesday 29th June.

The ceremony will be held at 1 pm at the Church of the Nativity, Crystal Stream, Diego Martin and he will be buried at the Carenage public cemetery off School Street.

Due to the public gathering restrictions, the funeral service will be shown virtually as well to allow for as many to attend and pay their final respects, while only closest relatives will be physically at the church for the funeral.

Devine died on June 22 at the age of 77.

He is best known for composing many of our well-loved calypsoes, from Saltfish by The Mighty Sparrow, Too Young To Soca, performed by Machel Montano and the classic Progress by King Austin.
