The Guyana Press Association extends condolences to the family especially his four daughters, friends and media colleagues of Allan Fenty who passed away on Saturday 11th February at his Georgetown home.

Mr Fenty started his working life as a teacher on the West Demerara. He was a trained teacher. Former GPA Executive and friend Bert Wilkinson recalled that Mr Fenty was Chief Information Officer at close of  the 1970s into the early 80s.

Mr Fenty helped to produce a number of publications dealing with the Guyana-Venezuela border issue as well as others pertaining to other  national events, Wilkinson said. He also had published several booklets with Guyanese and West Indian proverbs. Additionally, Mr Fenty played active role in various editions of Carifesta over the decades.

Up to the time of his passing, Mr Fenty was actively involved in the production of the publication, The Guyana Annual and hosted his television show, “The Cook Up Show” on local television.

Mr Fenty was also a broadcaster.

He would be remembered for “Frankly Speaking” his mind on a host of issues, the title for his weekly column, being an inspiration to young broadcasters, many of whom he would still advise and for his love of open and spirted conversations and laughter

To your bereaved family – what more can I say but that my sympathy goes out to them.. Do keep up Mr. Fenty’s legacy. He had so much more to contribute. He has gone too soon.
