Read by Keitron Meadows
Chairman Marco City Branch
31 August 2018
I bring warm and fraternal greetings from the central office of the PLP in Nassau. I extend condolences to the family on the death of our beloved brother Charles Pinder. Our love and appreciation goes out to his family.
This is a sad occasion. We will miss our brother. He will not be easily replaced. The years of sacrifice and his contributions have not gone unnoticed.
Charles Pinder was born in Hatchet Bay Eleuthera. Growing up in his teenage years, he became active supporting the new Progressive Liberal Party fighting alongside other PLP leaders to bring about social and economic freedom and opportunities for young Black Bahamians. He later moved to Grand Bahama and joined the taxi union as a taxi driver and later became one of Grand Bahama’s best limo service providers in his time. Mac Pinder was deeply involved in the PLP, especially the Marco City Branch. He was a giant but quiet man who offered his service, council and support without question. He became a stalwart in 2011 and was deeply honored and appreciative to accept it. He truly believed in the philosophy of the PLP and wanted to ensure his party remain committed to its Philosophy.
Let us continue to walk in his footsteps as we soldier on. Let us remember him as we go about our daily lives.
I say thank you to his family and friends as he enters the gates of a larger life.
May the Lord be with you.
On behalf of the Leader the Hon Phillip Davis MP QC, our Deputy Chester Cooper MP and all of our members and supporters throughout the Commonwealth, heartfelt condolences. May he rest in peace.
Senator Fred Mitchell
