PLP Extend Condolences: Henry Talbot’s Family

May 13, 2016

The PLP paid tribute to Mr Henry Talbot, saying they “will miss this giant figure within our party and the Bermudian community.”

Acting Deputy Leader Mr. Walter Roban said, “Mr Henry A Talbot was a long time trustee and member /supporter of the Bermuda Progressive Labour Party [PLP]. He was a well known entrepreneur and businessman and a pioneer in the private waste management and local trucking industry.

“His relationship with the PLP goes back many decades as he stood as a successful member of the business community shoulder to shoulder with the likes of entrepreneurs like the late Robert Trew and the late Lloyd Telford who were also PLP stalwarts when it was not fashionable. Mr Talbot showed courage, conviction and support for the Party prior to the historic victory in 1998.

“Mr Henry Talbot was very close to and had the confidence of many past leaders of the party and Premiers including Dame Lois Browne-Evans, L. Frederick Wade, and former Premiers Dame Jennifer Smith and the Hon. Paula Cox.

“The respect for Mr Talbot was so high throughout the Party, he was appointed a Trustee, a position reserved for only the most strong, wise and respected members.

“Mr Talbot, a resident of Sandys Parish, along with his wife Eunice, would personally give time and would regularly support events on behalf of the Party for causes throughout the island. They even played host to longstanding international friends of Bermuda and the Party such as the late Bahamian Prime Minister Sir Lynden O. Pindling.

“Mr Talbot and his family could always be counted on give the highest level of support for the PLP and Bermuda when asked. We will miss this giant figure within our party and the Bermudian Community.

“On behalf of the Bermuda Progressive Labour Party, I extend heartfelt condolences to his wife Eunice, his children, grandchildren‎ and all the Talbot Family.”
