He Was a Gentle Giant of a Man

Dear Source:
It is with deep sadness that we read of the passing of Senator Elmo Roebuck. He was a gentle giant that cared deeply for the people of the Virgin Islands. He was a man that led by example and served as a role model to many. Senator Roebuck was a good friend to my father, David Mohanani, and I too learned a great deal about him in the many social meetings we had. The people of the Virgin Islands have lost a gentle giant that so many came to love. His memory will live long in the hearts of the many people he touched. Our heartfelt condolences.
