The Port Health Unit, and by extension the Civil Service has been plunged into morning following the tragic loss of one of its promising young members Romello Delancy.

Delancy died in a car crash on Friday, August 11, along the Leeward Highway. A high outpouring of bereavement to the family.

The following is a statement from the Civil Service regarding Delancy’s passing:

It is with heavy hearts and profound sorrow that the Office of the Deputy Governor and Head of the Public Service announces the sudden and tragic passing of a bright and promising member of our Port Health Unit within the Environmental Health Department, Mr. Romello Cadron Delancy. His untimely departure on August 11th 2023 has left us all in a state of shock and disbelief.

Romello joined our Port Health Unit in July 2021 with a zest for learning and a determination to make a meaningful impact. In the short time he spent with us, he managed to forge deep connections with colleagues and supervisors alike. His infectious enthusiasm touched the lives of all who had the privilege of working alongside him. His dedication to his work was evident in his unwavering commitment to excellence.

Romello consistently demonstrated the remarkable ability to tackle challenges head-on, approaching each task with a fresh perspective and a tenacious spirit. His innovative ideas and creative solutions enriched his department and fostered an environment of growth and collaboration.

Beyond his professional achievements, Romello was a source of positivity and camaraderie. His smile, genuine kindness and willingness to lend a helping hand brightened days and made the workplace feel like a second home. His ability to connect with others, regardless of their position or experience, made him a beloved friend to many.

Deputy Governor and Head of the Public Service, Her Excellency Anya Williams in expressing her condolences stated:

“It is with deep sadness that we extend our condolences to the family of the late Romello Cadron Delancy.

Romello was a dedicated public servant to the Turks and Caicos Islands Government, in particular the Environmental Health Department. He was known for his warm personality and the efforts he contributed to his team during their daily duties at the Providenciales International Airport.

My office also extends condolences to Romello’s direct colleagues (the Environmental Port Health family), close friends, and business partners. The outpouring of love and sadness experienced over the weekend speaks to the intentional life he lived, and the government is forever grateful for the part Romello played in building a better Turk and Caicos Islands. While his time with us was tragically cut short, Romello's impact will forever resonate within hearts of the many he touched.
