Statement of Condolences 


5th April 2020

On this Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week, my heart is heavy as I reflect on another giant of a man, a Bahamian patriot, a health professional leader, a youth leader and my personal friend and colleague, Dr. Judson Eneas.

A trained Nephrologist, Dr. Eneas could have taken his considerable professional skills and talents any where in the world, but out of love for country, he chose to return to his home with his lovely wife Marchetta and contribute to the development of our country’s health infrastructure and civic ethos.

As a community, youth, and civic leader, Judson was a founding member of the Delta Lamda Boule, a fraternity that sponsors the Gentlemen’s Club. Judson and Marchetta were the key persons from its inception and is deserving of the accolades of the successes achieved by this outreach program of the faternity .

He mentored Archons and Archousas as a leader of Boulè even as he helped to build the local chapter of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity. His expansive civic work helped to shape a generation of young Bahamian leaders and significantly strengthened our country’s social fabric.

Judson was indeed a man of all seasons, a national treasure and a son of the soil who loved The Bahamas deeply.

His passing has left a huge leadership void and we who remain have a moral responsibility to memorialize his legacy of nation building through love and service. 

He was a good and faithful servant.

On behalf of my wife Ann, the Office of the Leader of the Opposition, my Parliamentary colleagues and the Progressive Liberal Party, I express heartfelt condolences to his wife Marchetta and their children during this difficult period.

May he rest in peace.
