The Reverend Canon Peter Mullings has been lauded in death as a stalwart of the Anglican Church for almost six decades, striking a balance as family man and mentor to youths.

The 85-year-old cleric passed away at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday after visiting his daughters Paula-Jean and Peta-Gaye, who live in Canada.

He was suffering with a kidney condition and also had dementia.

Mullings has been described as an innovative priest and dynamic youth director whose jovial mannerisms endeared him to both clergy and laity. He was also famous for his ability to recount enthralling, relatable stories.

The Most Reverend Howard Gregory, Archbishop of the West Indies and Bishop of Jamaica and the Cayman Islands, said that Mullings served with grace and distinction.
