BARRCACKPORE, Trinidad & Tobago, WI- 52 days after he met his demise in an accident on Jost van Dyke, [British] Virgin Islands, the late Samuel Don Ramtool aka ‘Ram’, 61, was laid to rest in his native country Trinidad and Tobago yesterday, March 30, 2018.

It is still unclear how the fatal accident on February 7, 2018 occurred; however, a senior police source had previously told our newsroom that the focus of the investigation is on the vehicle and whether a mechanical failure had a part to play.

Mr Ramtool, a truck driver, was well known on Jost van Dyke and, according to residents there, was instrumental during the cleanup phase following hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Meanwhile, family members were waiting all along for the body to be released to them for a memorial and burial.

Funeral service was held yesterday in Monkey Town, Barrackpore, Trinidad while burial took place at the Monkey Town Cemetery.

“Thank you to the Management and staff of ground works, Management and staff of Shamma Educational Institutions. Thank you to everyone one that stood with my mother, brother, and sister in law, we truly appreciate it,” family members stated.
