Former co-workers of the country’s latest road fatality victim, Adermi Williams, spent all of yesterday fighting back tears and trying their best to keep a brave face for customers during the work day as they struggled to face the reality that he is dead.
Williams, 21, of Willikies became the country’s seventh road fatality following a vehicular accident around 8 pm Sunday.
When OBSERVER media visited Automotive Arts where he worked, the atmosphere was much quieter than what customers said they are accustomed to. In fact, it was solemn.
At the time of his death, Williams worked in the warehouse department. Before that, he was an employee at Chase Distributors Limited on Factory Road.
Workers at the auto accessories store on Old Parham Road said the Inventory Clerk only spent a year with them, but it was long enough for him to leave a lasting impression.
Elbert George, who worked in the same department as Williams said, “He was a good youth, he was a good worker, very considerate and was a great addition to our team and he will be missed.”
Another worker, Arrie Charles said, “When I found out, I was shocked because he was like a brother to me. It is tough to lose somebody like him.”
Operations Manager at the Automotive Arts Simone Cenac said the deceased was very mannerly and was a good energy to have around.
Finance Manager James Massiah also shared kind words about his colleague.
“He was a very quiet individual, good personality and hard working. I can only imagine how shocked his friends are. My condolences to the family,” Massiah said.
Human Resources Manager at Chase Distributors Limited Joyce Gilead-Andrew said the entire staff at the supermarket and wholesale business was saddened when they heard the news.
Gilead-Andrew said Williams was very approachable and well loved by all.
“He was someone who gets along with everybody, he had a bright future, and his very presence moved everyone whom he came in contact with,” Gilead-Andrew said.
The HR manager said Williams worked for the company for two years before he moved to join
the team at Automotive Arts.
He first joined Chase Distributors as a part-time employee while he was still a student at the Antigua State College (ASC).
Williams took up full-time employment with the company after he completed his tertiary education.
The police said the young man was among eight people involved in a three-vehicle smash up on Factory Road, in the vicinity of Gigi Industries Furniture Store.
