The class of 1970 from Cayman High School has donated to the Cayman Heart Fund in memory of the husband of one of its members.
The former classmates from what is now John Gray High School raised donations for charity in October last year at their 40th high school reunion, which Francia and Trevor Lloyd attended.
Two weeks after the reunion, Mr. Lloyd died of a heart attack.
Mrs. Lloyd’s classmates approached her with the idea of donating the funds in her husband’s memory.
The donation was recently passed along to the Cayman Heart Fund.
Mr. Lloyd’s heart attack was caused by atherosclerotic coronary heart disease, which is also known as “the silent killer”.
Suzy Soto, chairman of the Cayman Heart Fund said, “It is sad that our community lost another vibrant and gracious person to cardiovascular disease. It is important that we educate and bring awareness of this silent killer.”
She said Mrs. Lloyd sees the Cayman Heart Fund’s programmes as a means of educating young and old alike about heart health, and that the donation in her husband’s memory is a fitting tribute to one who was so involved in and gave so willingly to many good causes in the Cayman Islands.
