ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Family and friends are in mourning following the sudden passing of David E. Fahie of Johnson's Ghut, Tortola.

The late Mr Fahie aka ‘Lover Boy’ and 'Cannon', who was born on August 5, 1950, and was 67 years of age, is survived by his wife Linnet E. Stoutt-Fahie and three children; two sons and a daughter.

Mr Fahie passed away on March 23, 2018, at the Government-run Peebles Hospital after a brief illness.

The deceased moved to St Thomas, United States Virgin Islands (USVI) in the early 70s, like many Virgin Islanders, to seek employment, where he worked with a family member.

The late Mr Fahie returned to Tortola around 1973 where he was employed in the private sector with a member of the Pickering family from Baughers Bay on the main island of Tortola.

In 1974 he was employed with the Government of the Virgin Islands (VI) at the Public Works Department. He moved up the ranks and retired in 2011 as Foreman for the Stores and Mechanic Unit.

He was an avid sports fan and played softball and was part of some three teams, including the Blue Jays and Atomics. He also managed a softball team from his home village.

Lover of sports

Mr Fahie was well known for his knowledge of sports and was a commentator on ZBVI 780 AM ‘Sports Talks’ radio show and kept abreast of different types of sports.

Following his retirement from Government in 2011 he used his leisure time as a taxi professional and his love for politics saw him flirt with a run for office in the 2011 general elections, but decided to stay out.

He was also a great singer and loved playing dominoes. 

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