Commissioner 'Twice' Son of the Soil has passed

Former Commissioner and loyal Gouyave man FitzRoy Bedeau has passed on and I am surprised no one has seemed to memorialize him. Twice as he was fondly called was a true Gouyave man. He served as police Commissioner twice, one occasion being during the Grenada Revolution. He also offered himself as a candidate in the 2008 election and though he was unsuccessful it was not due to his unpopularity as a Gouyave man. 'Twice' truly made his mark in Gouyave and in Grenada.

My sympathy to the family of Fitzroy(twice). May his soul rest in peace. Pansy you are right that we as Grenadians(Gouyave) people does not respond to any kind of article unless they have to criticize. There are mainly three people who read and participate in this forum. Tony Decoteau, Hollis (melo) and Merle. We need to wake up Gouyave folks

Re: Commissioner 'Twice' Son of the Soil has passed

Greetings to you, Pansy and Lauristan. How is your daughter doing? I know how proud you guys are of her.


I laughed when I read your post in the Obituary explaining how Twice got that nickname. Maybe your dad's story was true, but Gouyave had a far more funny and laughable story about its origin. I'm sure Merle and Melo know it too. But here is not the place for retelling it, so check out the older Gouyave folks, and I'm sure someone will tell you.

Yes, Fitzroy "Twice" Bedeau certainly left a mark on the story of what Gouyave is all about. We all know about his exploits and achievements so no need recounting them. Many years ago I ran into Twice at Miami International Airport, where he asked his "official American government escort" to give him a minute to chat with me. Here was a man who never forgot his roots and old friends despite the heights he reached!!

It might have been another Anglican childhood school friend, but if I'm not mistaken Twice and I shared the same birthday, November 25th 1944. I am looking forward so much to celebrating it, that if I do, I'll be raising a glass to both Twice and myself on our 75th.

Except Barry I can't remember his other siblings or his children, but I do hope they all accept sincere condolences from an old school mate, fellow footballer, wave-lasher and above all a friend, Tony "Bashee" DeCoteau.

Rest in Peace, Twice.
