Port of Spain, Trinidad: Thursday, May 11, 2023: The National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago (NCC) is saddened by the news of the death of Patrick Arnold on Wednesday, May 10.
A former NCC Chairman, Pan Trinbago President, and Government Senator, Patrick always displayed his fierce determination and vision in whatever field he served. In many instances, he was instrumental in redefining the scope and shape of several aspects of our annual Carnival traditions that we celebrate to this day.
While his passing is a tremendous blow to the Carnival and Cultural communities, he will be remembered as one who set an example of excellence for others to follow.
The NCC joins with the family, friends, and the nation in remembering Patrick Arnold, a leader whose hard work, commitment, and love for Trinbago culture has helped preserve it for future generations.
