SPANISH TOWN, Virgin Gorda, VI - Residents of the sister island of Virgin Gorda are mourning the loss of a son of the soil who made an indelible impression on the community he loved.

Virgin Gordian Mr Oskus Walters died this morning, June 14, 2016 at Peebles Hospital on Tortola at the age of 77 following a period of illness.

Mr Walters was well known as one of the most skilled and professional painters on the sister island.

"He was a master at painting," said a special friend of Mr Walters.
