Â Tragic DeathÂ – The Late Harry Augustus Greaves, Jr. Finally Laid To Rest, Thursday, March 10, 2016.
After prolonged controversies over circumstances surrounding the cause of death of the former Managing Director of the Liberia Petroleum Refinery Company Harry Greaves, Jr. was laid to rest on Thursday, March 10, 2016. At the burial, the wife of the deceased, Madam Precious Andrews-Greaves said there is no reason to celebrate the gruesome passing of a father, husband and son.
Unlike funerals of former government officials, Harry Greaves’ funeral was not marred by pomp and pageantry nor publishing of official gazette. The body of the late Greave was found at the back of the Executive Mansion, a day after he was dropped off by his driver at the RLJ Kendeja resort. Madam Greaves said the dismissal of celebration is also to allow the family to grieve following the mysterious way in which Mr. Greaves died.
“This is an extreme traumatic situation for us as a family due to the manner in which all of the events unfolded especially in the public. We have not had a chance to grieve as a family on controversies surrounding his death. Also in line with the tragic nature of this event, we can say we have nothing to celebrate so, we have decided not to have repast”, said Mrs. Greaves.
