GIS – The Government of Saint Lucia has extended condolences to the family of renowned cultural icon, Frank Norville.
Minister for Tourism, Heritage and Creative Industries, the Hon. Lorne Theophilus, offered well wishes to the loved ones of the late Frank Norville, stating that he was truly one of a kind.
“I want to express on behalf of the Government and people of Saint Lucia, and all of those involved in the creative sector, our deepest sympathies. We know the role that he played also as a father within his family and we hope that with time that they find the courage and the strength that they need to move on as we mourn along with them.
“Frank was one of those people who didn’t just participate actively in the preservation of the art form but also the enhancement of the art form; and he went a step further and taught the art form which is something you don’t find very often. Many people don’t pass on the things they have learnt.”
Frank Norville was known as a photographer, musician, actor and dancer. He was instrumental in preserving Saint Lucian culture.
“Frank participated in a number of varied forms actually,” he continued. “He wrote and performed music, and engaged in acting and teaching. It’s rare to find an individual like him and beyond the creative sector we tremendously mourn his passing.”
