One of Allan’s close friend’s statement

Sad news to report today. My friend and colleague for most of the past 44 years have gone to the great beyond. Allan Arthur Fenty, 78, died overnight at his South Ruimveldt home in Georgetown. He had complained of feeling unwell in recent weeks. He was, as many are aware, a former Chief Information officer in the late 70s and early 80s, a leading folklorist, newspaper columnist, TV and Radio personality, and chronicler of Guyanese and West Indian proverbs among other talents and interests. He is survived by his wife, Myrna in New York, four daughters, and at least one grandchild, Paton, also out of NY. Funeral arrangements are to be announced. Will keep you guys updated.

Who was Allan Arthur Fenty?

Fenty was the host of the well-liked weekly television program Cook-up Show and a longtime contributor to the “Frankly Speaking” section of the Stabroek newspaper.

Fenty had worked for the party and as the government’s communication officer during the previous People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR)-led administration.

Wordsworth Mc Andrew, a Guyanese broadcaster and folklorist, left the public eye in the 1970s, and Fenty took over with his equally unique approach to preserving and promoting Guyanese culture in the spoken as the written word.

Woke up to the sad news of the passing of folklorist, author, columnist, storyteller, and TV and radio personality Allan Fenty this morning. This 78 youth whom we all fondly called Uncle Allan was always one of my biggest supporters, mentors,s and friends who never missed my boxing shows and visited me quite often in Linden when I served as Mayor. I can’t believe it, but I pray for your wonderful family, friends, and relatives in this time of grief. May your soul rest in peace, Uncle Allan. Guyana lost a giant.

The last time we met, was at the launch of Bobby Viera’s campaign for Local Government Elections, in December 2022. He said to me with the usual mischievous twinkle in his eye: I am going to be the Devil’s advocate and ask Bobby, who are the others on his slate for elections, what makes them different from those at Congress Place and why should I vote for them. Rest in Peace Allan Arthur
