FNM LEADER EXTEND CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY OF FORMER DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF SPORTS KEVIN COLEBROOKE

Sep 25, 2022

I was both surprised and saddened to learn of the passing of Kevin Colebrooke, former Deputy Director of Sports at the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture. For many years Kevin built a reputation as an integral part of the Sporting community in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

Some Bahamians came to know him as an outstanding track and field athlete in the 1980s whose gift took him to St Augustine’s College in Raleigh North Carolina. While serving as Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, Kevin played an important role in guiding and implementing our various sporting initiatives.

He was self-assured and very confident. He was his own man and shared his views candidly. He developed an intimate relationship with the Aquatic community. He became somewhat of a fixture at the Betty-Kenning Aquatic Center. He took pride in ensuring things were managed properly in the period leading up to the establishment of the National Sports Authority. He was a true friend and helpmate to a number of our national swim teams and international teams that trained in the Bahamas during the spring.

Kevin will be missed tremendously by various sporting and other communities including those of us who had the pleasure of working with him. On behalf of my wife Berlice and my colleagues who benefitted from his expertise while serving at the Ministry, I extend condolences to Kevin’s wife Permanent Secretary Cora Bain-Colebrooke, his daughter Kristin Colebrooke and his extended family. May God bring you comfort in this difficult

time.
