A funeral service will be held later today to commemorate the life of James Tanny Rose, a dedicated community activist and long-standing member of the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP).  

He passed away at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Center last month at the age of 77 years old. 

Rose was regarded highly for his political pronouncements in the defense of the ruling administration.

He was considered dangerous by those whom he opposed, and loved by a thousand others for the same reason. He could think and he could speak, and he was relentless in his ambition.’

Rose was one of Antigua and Barbuda’s most effective Radio Talk-Show presenters on account of his keen intellect and incisive examination of issues that resonated with all.

He was a self-appointed activist who, for 10 years, was unrelenting in his pursuit of the return of the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party to electoral victory.  

Rose was described as being fearless and undeterred by criticisms.  

He also led the Antigua Trades and Labour Union as General Secretary from 1976 to 1979.  The service of thanksgiving will be held at the St John’s Anglican Cathedral.
