Founder of Virgin Gorda Transport, Edwin ‘Speedy’ George has died.
The well-known businessman reportedly died on Wednesday (March 28) following a medical operation overseas.
Speedy and his wife Nidia started their transport business in the early 1960’s with one taxi cab.
They then started Virgin Gorda’s first driving school from their front yard, and by the late 1960’s, they imported three mini mokes for rental.
Before long, Speedy started his first ferry service, which has blossomed into one of the territory’s top ferry companies.
The company offers services domestically and internationally in the neighbouring United States Virgin Islands.
