WICB sends condolences to Director Joel Garner

KINGSTON, Jamaica – The West Indies Cricket Board is extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Huston King, the father of WICB director and West Indies fast bowling legend Joel Garner.

King was 85 and died on Friday at home in the seaside village of Enterprise in the southern Barbados parish of Christ Church.

“There is little one can say at such a very sad time like this, but we know that the feelings of sorrow are shared by all who knew Joel’s father and they will gradually find comfort in all their happy memories,” said WICB President Dave Cameron.

“I want to let Joel know that his father would have lived to see him become an outstanding servant to his country and the people of the Caribbean, and would have died content for knowing this.

“On behalf of fellow directors, the management and staff of the WICB, we would like to express our very sincere sympathy to Joel, his family and the countless people with whom his father made friends over the years.”
