Four years after his passing, friends and relatives remember a “solid” brother
Leonard Wharwood Jr. stood tall for his community
This past August 23, marked four years since the passing of Leonard Wharwood Jr., a man described as a community stalwart because of his dedication to building and supporting the people and institutions around him.
Wharwood, who served extensively as the Honorary Consul for Grenada in Quebec, a position he held between 2009 and the time of his passing, has been at the service of his country, Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique for much of his life.
After working in the diplomatic service for several years, Wharwood came to Montreal in 1983 and excelled in his personal and professional life.
He was employed at McGill University for more than 28 years and partnered in a thriving business, Karib Shipping for decades also.
As well, his involvement in community work was without end.
Over the years, he served as a member and officer in a long line of organizations including, the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), Playmas Montreal Cultural Association, the Cornucopia Association of Canada, the Grenada Nationals Association of Montreal, Inc. the newly formed Spice Island Cultural Day Association of Quebec.
Extremely well read and passionate about the Black and Caribbean community, Wharwood remained a true Pan Africanist to the end and carried his “Caribbean-ness” like a badge of honor.
On this the fourth anniversary of his death, many in the community stop to remember Leonard Wharwood Jr. for his dedication and service.
