May you continue to sleep in Paradise! And May your soul Rest In Peace! 🙏🏼
Our Sincere condolences to the family at this time. May God grant him eternal peace and comfort.
Uncle was a man who possessed great leadership skills and always kept himself occupied. He was a positive contributor to numerous alumni actives and publications most notably The Scribbler.
I would now like to share a story with you.
Thank you for taking me on a trip to Montreal on the VIA rail when I was a smallie to experience their famous smoke meat sandwiches. The infinite supply of beer-on- rails...I mean the smoke meat sandwich was really good!
Many will remember you as the brains in the family, the one who graduated from Queens College of yesteryear. You were even in movies while cavorting with Cuba's Castro when I was a mere tot duncie-fire-goating it through some school or the other. You were and have always excelled in academia!
I know we haven't been in regular contact over the years but I am sure you have played some role in shaping me (and I am not talking my belly), into who I am today be it through conversation, your love of good music, the leadership roles you played in government and during your retirement years as well!
Things haven't always been smooth going for anyone one of us mortals, but I am sure you tried your best in your own way to be a good husband, father, grand-father uncle friend and confidante.
I remember the last time we spoke, you were helping one of your comrades launch a book about escaping from some bad people and circumstances. I hope it was successful. Now that it is the final boarding call, may you ride the high heavens on a saltfish and bake with your favorite beverage in hand while listening to your favorite tunes.
There is a time when we must say good-bye, but faith and love will never die, may uncle Kemahl rest and be at peace.
While I was not a school pal of ARK, I remember his personality after he suffered his bout with Polio and eventually returned to QC to complete his studies. After many years and his work in the Guyana government, he left his place of birth and made Canada his new home. He never forgot the QC he loved and dedicated his considerable efforts on behalf of the Toronto chapter of the QC Alumni Association for many years. He will be missed for all his outstanding organizational skills and friendship to all.
Kemahl assisted and coordinated my first book signing event in Toronto this past summer, and he was the main reason the event was well organized and attended.
On behalf of my sister, Fay Mendoza and myself, I would like to offer our condolences to his family on the loss of a great human being with a big heart!
Queens College has lost another stalwart alumnus. Rest in peace K, you deserve it!
My Deepest Condolences to Michelle and his grand kids.
I could always count on Uncle Kemahl to provide answers to my enquires about times past and ancestors. I will really miss being able to connect with him with my questions. It was also because of Uncle Kemahl I became interested in different types of music because of his extensive Album collection that he left at our home in Guyana during his travels. So many times I remember going to my grandmother's home and Uncle Kemahl would be playing the Beatles record or some other hip group.
May his Soul rest in Peace. You lived life to the fullest despite your physical challenge down to the very end.
