He was 91 years old.The tributes were led by Prime Minister, the Most Hon.

Michael Manley, Jamaica made strides in building a national primary health care system that would serve as a blueprint for the establishment of similar systems world-wide.Prime Minister Simpson Miller noted that he was a scholar “of high repute”, having attained multiple academic degrees in the United Kingdom, and the United States. The son of National Hero, Norman Manley, also served as a Senator, as well as a Member of Parliament for South Manchester between 1989 and 1993, and as Cabinet Minister for Youth and Community Development.Meanwhile, Member of Parliament for North Eastern Manchester, Audley Shaw remembered Mr. Manley as a quiet, unassuming intellectual, who “went about his duties in quiet comportment, whether as a minister of government or Member of Parliament”.In expressing appreciation for Mr. Manley’s service to his country, Mr. Shaw said, “he took the time to share of his skills, his life, in the service to people”.In his tribute, State Minister in the Ministry of Finance and Public Service, Hon. Horace Dalley, said Mr. Manley was “a giant of a man”.“The simplicity of Douglas Manley cannot be overstated… (he was) genuine, gentle, deep, and loved Jamaica”.Mr. Manley, who attended Munro College, was a gifted athlete, having the honour of defeating one of Jamaica’s most decorated track talents, Hon. Herb McKenley, in the 100 metres race at the 1941 Boys’ Championships.He also lectured at the University of the West Indies (UWI) in the Education Department and was seconded to the United Nations, where he was assigned to the organisation’s economic mission for Africa. He later served as a professor of sociology at the UWI.Upon his retirement from politics in 1993, Mr. Manley was awarded with the national honour of Commander of the Order of Distinction for service to education and community development.Mr. Manley also published ‘The Candidate’, a book which gives a firsthand account of the internal workings of one of Jamaica’s leading political parties.The special sitting was attended by sons Norman and Roy; niece Sara; and nephew Joseph.
