Stephen Alleyne – Rest In Peace

Filed under: Barbados,cricket world cup,Tribute — notesfromthemargin @ 2:02 pm


We on the margin would like to pay tribute to a great Barbadian Mr. Stephen Alleyne  who was one of the chief architects of Barbados’ World Cup bid and event, he passed away this morning at the young age of 47.

We extend our sympathy to his family in this time of grief.

He will be missed.



  1. Already we have seen the crocodile tears of hypocrites like Barbados Underground (and soon to follow Barbados Free Press) following the death of Stephen Alleyne. These are the same people who hid behind the internet for months to wage the dirtiest of smear campaigns against the same man they now pretend to pay tribute to. He dedicated himself to making the hosting of World Cup 2007 a success which all true Bajans are justifiably proud of. No doubt the stress and strain of the vicious attacks and rumour-mongering of MARGINAL’S EDITORIAL PEN APPLIED HERE such as BU and BFP contributed greatly to his health problems. It is the classic tale of national sacrifice… and Stephen Alleyne paid for it with his life.

    We at BFPE pay tribute to his legacy of outstanding work and offer our genuine and heart-felt condolences to his family.

    As a nation we must ensure that we honour him fittingly.

    May his soul rest in peace.

  6. A true gentleman that is simple brilliant are associate with this tower of a man. Only last week, I was in conversation with Stephen for half hour just before he attend a funeral. A fantastic listener and a careful and deliberate speaker was the hallmark of the late Stephen Alleyne. May he rest in peace.
