May he rest in eternal peace!
May his courage, fearlessness and most of all, his humility, be an inspiration to all of us!
We have lost a true "son of the soil", and it is safe to say that his absence will leave a void in Barbados, as well as in the wider Caribbean!
Owen, we are sad, and we mourn your passing, but we are glad that we had the opportunity to have met you, and to have experienced your leadership, and your devotion!
"I know you're shining down on [us] from Heaven..." (Mariah Carey)
Sleep on, my brother!

I was deeply saddened on learning of the passing of Prime Minister The Rt Hon Owen Arthur. PM Arthur was a great man, a great Barbadian and a great Caribbean leader. His commitment and his dedication to Barbados and to the region will be long remembered and he certainly set standards of leadership which will not be easily matched. I had the great honor of serving as Ambassador of the European Union to Barbados during his tenure and have excellent memories of working with him both on the professional and personal level. Barbados and the Caribbean region have lost a great man. May he Rest In Peace.

Mosiah Hoyte

Barbados

As a child I didn't think anyone else could be Prime Minister of Barbados.
Throughout my primary and secondary school life, there was only one Prime Minister I wanted to be like.
I wanted to command the attention and respect of others as he did.
I wanted to deliver powerful speeches in the House of Parliament as he did, even though if I am honest, I didn't understand all the jargon.
I wanted to speak at mass meetings and hear the people roar.
I wanted to be able to engage the "greatest of them" and still connect with the ordinary man, as he did.
To me, he was a leader par excellence.

Rest in peace, Sir.
You definitely impacted!

Your contributions were undeniably pillars for the developed nation that we are today! A true son of the soil that paved the way for many of us to emulate. A man of the people and for the people and for all, I just want to say "Thank You" Professor, The Right Honorable, Owen S. Arthur. May the angels surround you as you rest in eternal peace!

Rico Clarke

Barbados

The Rt. Honourable Professor Owen Seymour Arthur was a stalwart and tenacious leader of the BLP. Under his stewardship, he has led Barbados through some of the most difficult of moments. The partisanship of his regional counterparts as well as his support for his own fellow Barbadians, speaks to the fact that he was truly a man of the people. As the longest-serving Prime Minister of Barbados, he has not only won the admiration and hearts of his fellow people but, also the hearts of some of the world's most prominent leaders. Owen has paved the proverbial way for us Barbadians to be proud of and his ideology of "Face it and Fix It" is a resolve that we all Barbadians should have to truly emulate more so now than ever during this time. He will truly be missed by many of us. Rest In Peace Sir.

Andrea Griffith

My deepest sympathy to the family for the loss of my friend and neighbor Dr. Owen Arthur. I will never forget all that he did for our parish of St. Peter.

May you Rest In Peace and rise in Glory. Love, appreciation and respect from the Griffith Family☮️
