A young man, Trevor Rose was the victim of a brazen attack by a shameless assassin who shot him several times at point blank range in the early morning of Sunday, January 26, at Eccles East Bank Demerara.
A Guyanese of multiple talents is no more. He has gone to the great beyond for reason (s) still unknown.
Trevor, a popular Costume Designer, Events Co-ordinator and basketball player and Administrator was brutally killed in the presence of his female companion and a taxi driver. The culture and sports fraternities have lost a Giant, who is not immediately, replaceable. Trevor who showed his likeness for art early in his life was cut down at a young age.
The circumstance under which Trevor Rose was murdered continues to be prevalent in our society. Guns seem to be in the possession of anyone. No one seems to have value for human life as the guns are used wantonly by those who are contracted to use them, or by the owners themselves.
Development needs people with the necessary and relevant skills and expertise, without which a country cannot progress. Killing will not help. Trevor Rose like many others contributed to the growth and advancement of this country in meaningful ways.
The agencies concerned must make every effort to ensure that a full investigation is conducted, the perpetrators caught and brought to justice. Too many such activities are left unsolved. People are dying in their houses, business place and on the streets. The killers are walking freely and continue their programmes when called upon. Families and the nation as a whole are faced with the consequence of being deprived of valuable human resources.
Trevor Rose was a close friend of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport/National Sports Commission. His regular visits to and discussions with the Director of Sport were valuable.
His willingness to organize programmes, especially for the youths was evident during his tenure with the Georgetown Amateur Basketball Association and also the involvement of young persons in his construction of costumes for Mashramani for schools and the commercial companies.
The provision of the two backboards at the outdoor facility at Burnham Court and the improvement and development of the environment is an example of his commitment and dedication to the proper organizing and efficient running of Basketball in Georgetown.
His winning of the best costume designer award at Mashramani, on several occasions is a manifestation of his love for the art and the energies and dedication he brought to bear during the activities.
Trevor Rose was always an adorable and loving individual. He demonstrated peace, kindness and respect. His ability to lead and be a team person was obvious and was noted by all with whom he came into contact.
The entire nation mourns the loss of Trevor Rose, one who touched the lives of many in the art form and sports and in other ways.
Sincere condolences are extended to his immediate and extended families, friends, fans, colleagues and all those who admired and supported him during his life on earth’s plain.
