As we continue making plans for the 30th. Anniversary for the Class of 1978, word came to us that Classmate: Laurence Watson, was killed in a crash in which 6 fellow-cyclists were seriously injured, on Saturday 22 March, 2008 at approximately 7 am on the 'Palisadoes Road'.
Born in England, Laurence came to Jamaica and attended Wolmer's Boys' School from First Form. We remember him as a member of Crosse House, a dangerous 'baller and a supreme Table-Tennis Player of national renown being invited to train & play with Jamaica's National Team.
He then returned to England to continue his studies at University, and returned to Jamaica. He was married in 2007 to Janine (née Finzi-Smith), a Medical Industry Consultant for Windsor Laboratories and they were the proud parents of a precious daughter: Gabriella Isabel.
Close friends include: Richie Oddman, E.Courtenay Rattray, Steven Payne, George Garth, Kevin Brown & Chris Beckford among innumerable more lives he impacted in his 47 years.
In the event anyone is able to pay respects or offer service personally to the family; the last known details we have are: 16 Bridgemount Heights, Orange Grove (876) 969 7550
Please submit any pictures, details, personal memories and thoughts either firstname.lastname@example.org or the Family's Guest-Book and it will be made available promptly online.
