Toots’ Heroes Park Burial Marks End Of An Era

Reggae icon Frederick ‘Toots’ Hibbert had a quiet burial amid few mourners on Sunday. Hibbert, 77, was buried at National Heroes Park beside Dennis Brown following the intervention of Culture Minister Olivia Grange after a family dispute scuttled interment after his funeral in October.

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the efforts to give Hibbert a heroes send-off culminated on Sunday after his body lay in repose in major townships to allow adoring fans to get a final glimpse of the larger-than-life entertainer credited with giving reggae its name.

With more than 20 persons attending the burial, a few people stood on the outskirts of the burial site to observe the proceedings.
