Cricket West Indies on Tuesday paid tribute to Gordon “Butch” Stewart, who sadly passed away on Monday evening. Mr. Stewart, the outstanding Jamaican businessman and entrepreneur, was the founder and Chairman of Sandals International Resorts Ltd – the long-standing and valued partners of West Indies cricket.
Stewart was a stalwart of the Caribbean society, an iconic figure across the region, and a true supporter of the game of cricket at all levels.
Speaking on behalf of CWI, President Ricky Skerritt said: “CWI mourns the passing of The Honourable Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart OJ and sends our sincere condolences to his family. He was a life-long West Indies cricket fan, fierce champion of the Caribbean and a major commercial partner. He was also a true West Indian legend in his own right.
