****So sad to hear. Condolences to the entire Borde Family. Worked with "Bobboy" in the 60's at the Ministry of Works and looked forward to seeing him every year for Carnival.  Always the gentleman and never had a negative comment about anyone. Also a very good opening batsman. Rest in Peace "Bobboy", you gave it your all.

Hugh Bobboy Borde and Neville Jules Pioneers & Stalwarts may you both Rest in Peace

My father spoke highly of Mr. Hugh Borde over the years. Thank you for your contributions: for sharing your talent and promoting Trinidad and Tobago culture all over the world.  Our heartfelt prayers and sincerest condolences to Mr. Borde's loved ones: family and friends. May God bless his soul and may he rest in heavenly peace.
