SETTLEMENT, Anegada, VI- The Virgin Islands, and more so the Anegada community and his immediate family, have been in shock with the sudden passing of prominent Virgin Islander and Anegada resident, Mr Aubrey M. Levons.

Mr Levons, a businessman and owner of the world renowned Big Bamboo, Hotel, Restaurant and Bar located at Loblolly Bay, Anegada, passed away at his home early this morning Friday November 3, 2017.

The late voice of Anegada was a couple days away from his 68th birthday, having been born November 8, 1949.

The deceased is survived by 6 children and his wife Mrs Diane Levons.

A voice for Anegada

Mr Levons has been a voice for the rights of Anegadians over the years, especially on land title issues. He served on many different government Boards and Committees, and was a lover of local and regional politics.

In 1995, with the introduction of the Territorial At Large System, Mr Levons ran unsuccessfully as an independent At Large candidate.

He will be long remembered for his outstanding contributions to the tourism industry, having lived also on the sister island of Virgin Gorda where he owned a Restaurant and Bar before returning to his home island of Anegada.

The Board of Directors, Management and Staff of Virgin Islands News Online offer our condolences  to his immediate family and other loved ones.

      Man, I just saw the man in Digicel getting his phone tapped up. True Virgin Islander and lover of Anegada first and BVI second, rest in peace. Lord, ah feel this one. He was the Godfather of Anegada. He loved that island from hair to toe nail.

    The man who was a great conversationalist , and who had the conviction that with two buckets in hand would walk to Loblolly bay in the expectations that visiting tourists would buy cold refreshments from him.

    It took courage to bring his business from those early beginnings to where it is today. Kudos to you

    i am really saddened by the passing of Mr. Levons. Even though I only knew him personally for over 6 years, it didnt take long for me to realize that this wonderful gentleman of the soil deserved a great deal of respect and admiration. I would never pass him without at least giving him a few seconds or minutes of my time just to greet him and give him a firm handshake given that I am living on Tortola and I would not see him as often as I preferred when he visited from Anegada to run his errands. my condolences to the family, especially his wife, his daughter Kishma, his son Coy, and the rest of the siblings and family members left to mourn. I join you in this time of bereavement.

    We are old friends from Canada, we first met you on Virgin Gorda in the seventies, although we didn’t see you every year we visited, we always felt you were a good friend. Condolences to Diane and the family for the loss of a wonderful family man.

    We all lost a great man. My mother lost a beloved brother. My father a great friend. And my siblings and myself a wonderful uncle. He's missed everyday. Great business man, greater family man. His impact on people stemmed greater than just the islands. Your in God's hands now, but there's no doubt that you'll be missed and remembered forever right here.
