Sir Everton DeCourcey Weekes born Feb 26, 1925 in Pickwick Gap Bridgetown Barbados.
We salute you Sir Everton as an icon, a legend, a hero and a great servant to Barbados’ and West Indies’ cricket.
Sir Everton’s illustrious international cricketing career started in Jan 1948, in his back yard right here at the Historic Kensington Oval a mere 800 meters away from his childhood home. Although his career did not get off to the best of starts Sir Everton did not let that break him. He endured being booed by a Kingston Jamaica crowd, and being dropped a couple times before going on to score 5 consecutive centuries in 5 consecutive innings.
Sir Everton was a great man of grit and determination, who left an indelible mark on the cricketing landscape of the Caribbean.
On behalf of the Management and staff of Kensington Oval Management Inc. we offer our sincerest condolences to his family, friends and many fans.
May he rest in peace!
