    The Life and Times of Devin Liburd

    Charlestown, Nevis
    : Not all families will enjoy the Christmas season.  Devin “Vern” Liburd’s family is such a family. On Saturday afternoon, Devin’s remains were laid to rest at solemn ceremony held at the St. John’s Anglican Church.   Devin met instant death following a motor accident he was involved in last week.
     
    Through the eulogy, it was disclosed that Devin was born on 19th February 1982.  As a young child he would escape the watchful eye of his mother, Val, and cross the road to the Auto Mechanic shop next door to converse with the young men who worked at the garage.  

    It was on one of these escapades that he wore a shirt marked ‘where is my beef’, and for that he earned the name ‘Meatman’.  He was a very energetic, friendly child who won the hearts of all those who knew him.
     
    As a child, his mother took him, along with his other siblings, to church regularly.
     
    He was a student at Charlestown Preparatory, St. John’s Primary School and Gingerland Secondary School. 
     
    On leaving school, he worked for some time with his Uncle at Roy’s Construction.  He also apprenticed at Everton’s Garage and later he became an employee at Rams Supermarket.  For the past 2-3 years he was an employee at The Four Seasons in the Landscaping Department.
     
    Being the eldest sibling in the home Devin had to shoulder some responsibilities and he generally did them well.  His mother remembers him as a playful loving child who was generally helpful.  Without being asked he would go to his elderly neighbour’s place and cut his lawn expecting no reward. 
     
    His siblings say he was funny and they will miss his jokes.  His daughter, Kianna will miss his love.
