OECS Commission statement on the passing of Andy Delmar

The OECS commission would like to register its deep shock and sadness on the untimely passing of Mr. Andy Delmar, the Managing Director of 1st National Bank of Saint Lucia and the Commission’s primary Bank.   Mr. Delmar died in a tragic car accident on 17th July 2016. 

Director General of the OECS Dr. Didacus Jules described Mr. Delmar as “a Banker of extraordinary vision, sensitivity and imagination who viewed his profession as a facilitator of financial opportunity for persons from all walks of life. Andy was a professional of unmatched competence and a passionate person drive. To excellence in all that he did… But above all he was a wonderful, gentle, joyful person, a loving husband and dedicated father.”

The OECS Commission will miss his financial advice and we extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Wendy, his sons and his entire family. 

May he rest in peace and we give thanks for the Laughter and the Light that he brought us all.

    I was in St Lucia when this happened and was in complete shock. I knew Andy and his wife and my heart goes out to his family. I am still in shock and hope his family is doing ok. My sincere condolences to them all. Andy Delmar rest in solemn peace with your Lord and Savior. You are gone too soon but never FORGOTTEN. Like Spooky said, please, please, please can authorities look into the highway and this overtaking in St Lucia on these little roads is not safe. Lord put a hand.
