Dr. Neville deSouza, the 12th Lord Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Jamaica & the Cayman Islands, is dead.
Bishop deSouza died at his home in Mandeville, Manchester just before midday on Saturday. He had been ailing for some time.
Bishop deSouza, who was 87, served as a parish priest in many sections of the island.
In 1973, he was elected Suffragan Bishop of Montego Bay, and Lord Bishop in 1979.
He was known for his outspokenness and was not deterred by criticism, especially in the 1970s when he spoke out strongly about social issues of the time.
He retired in 2000.
