    My deepest condolences to my friend Adrian’s family, relatives, and friends as we mourn his passing and celebrate his life. May the God of comfort and peace be with you during this time. It was a great pleasure meeting and becoming friends with Adrian when I came back home in 2010. I will miss him but I know he’s in heaven looking down at me from heaven. Rest in peace Adrian.

    A great tutorial leader. I was honored to have him as my stats tutorial leader just this semester. Knowledge and understanding is good, but the right attitude is great. He always took time to tell his students to make sure they have the right attitude. UWI has lost a stats giant but he’s “shotting” with the angels. I could hear him say now to us who are left behind “Dah eazee”. Sleep on Mr. Burke, you worked hard and long now you are the shotta boss watching over us. As he would say “I out”.
