Late Reggae icon Toots Hibbert’s funeral service did not go as planned yesterday October 15. The legendary ska and roots reggae singer’s interment at the Dovecot Memorial Park was postponed due to family members not being able to provide his burial order. Now because of this his body had to remain another day on the ice.
It was an uncommon twist of the tale for a man revered all over the world for his iconic songs, onstage showmanship.
The private funeral service was held at 11am Thursday at the chapel at Perry’s Funeral Home on the outskirts of Spanish Town, St Catherine. Toots died at the University Hospital of the West Indies on September 11, 12 days after being admitted after contracting COVID-19. He was 77.
