Our dearly beloved, the late Rev. Royland Samuel Thompson, was laid to rest on January 17, 2019, at Meadowrest Memorial Gardens, St. Catherine.

The celebration and thanksgiving service for his life was one of fond remembrance, that captured the essence of a life well-lived…. A life of diligence and purpose, of caring and sharing; a husband to Rosemarie, father of Ronique, Ronaye, and Rodeen; brother, friend, and Minister, with such godly traits that endeared him to many persons.
