Fr Theodore Taylor one of two English Dominicans in the AEC died on Friday aged 80


ROMAN Catholic Priest Father Theodore Taylor has died at the age of 80.He passed away at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados  on Friday after returning from Grenada last Monday due to ill health.

Yesterday, fellow priest Father Peter Clarke described Taylor as a very gentle, kind and compassionate person. The two were the last remaining British priests in the Eastern Caribbean and were both members of the Dominican Order.

“We both spent all of our priestly lives working in Barbados and Grenada,” he said, pointing out that Taylor was sent to Grenada after that country was hit by Hurricane Ivan.

“He was not a superstar priest. He just quietly got on with the priesthood,” Clarke said.
