There was an outpouring of love and admiration for the late former ambassador, Anthony Johnson, at yesterday’s memorial service of thanksgiving. A common thread in the tributes presented was Johnson’s patriotism and interest in rural Jamaica. The 82-year-old — who died April 28 — was ambassador to the United States, a diplomat, former Jamaica Labour Party member of parliament, senator, economist and lecturer. Family, friends and government officials gathered to pay their final respects at St Augustine’s Chapel, on the North Street campus of Kingston College, where the former ambassador attended school in the 1950s.
