33-year-old Sheron Sukhdeo, a Millionaire Car dealer and real estate agentfrom Trinidad and Tobago, who was murdered on Monday in cold blood, was laid to rest with accessories ‘he might be needing in the afterlife.’
The father of two, who was shot multiple times in a drive by attack outside the home of relatives at Caroni Savannah Road, Charlieville shortly before 9p.m on Monday March 26th, died while being treated at a hospital and according to local media, he left behind an empire worth tens of millions of dollars to his wife and kids.
Dressed in white along with his famous gold jewellery adorning his fingers, hands and neck, he was laid in a $50,000 casketwhich had words like ‘Sheron’s Auto’ and ‘World Boss’ inscribed in it. A pair of Timberland boots were placed in the casket near to his feet, while his trophies from various racing events were on display. Sukhdeo’s body arrived at the house in a white hearse just before 10 am, where several of his luxurious cars were seen parked. At the funeral service of the millionaire in his palatial home in Orchard Gardens, Chaguanas, hundreds turned out to mourn the business man whose funeral reflected the life he lived – luxurious vehicles, excessive gold jewellery, friends and family, loud music and a car show.
His body was taken into the house briefly and then brought back outside, where his wife Rachael Sukhdeo participated in his final Hindu rites.
Just before his body was reduced to ashes (cremation), Sukhdeo was showered with Moët champagne at the Waterloo Cremation site in Carapichaima. Before his death, the businessman was charged twice for assault in February 2016 and later in May 2017, but the charges were dropped after his wife refused to testify.
On the funeral programme was a poem, “Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems to be the same. But as God calls us one by one, the chain will be linked again.”
