No amount of words can summarise his selfless impact.
No human being is without shortcomings, critics or enemies.
It is undeniable however that Mr. Pantin made a positive and life changing difference to many individuals. An all round sportsman, former national footballer and hockey player.
A humanitarian, educator, mentor and former Minister of Education. In addition to his own children. He was a father and father figure to many. An example of selfless service, courageous conviction and compassion for the disadvantaged and underprivileged. As a past student of Fatima College I had first hand experience of his sense of purpose, insistence on discipline and hard work but also his appreciation of the importance of giving second and third chances.
On behalf of the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) I extend deepest condolences to his family, friends and community.
Thank you Mr. Pantin your resolute commitment and dedication to a life of service will serve as a timeless example.
'Nintendo Vinces'- In striving we conquer.
Rest in peace.
