The island of Grand Bahama has suffered a great loss with the passing of legendary businessman and noted Rotarian Harold Sonny Waugh.

Eighty-four-year-old Waugh was born in Nassau in 1928 and established a name for himself in Grand Bahama through a series of business ventures.

In 1965, Waugh introduced Grand Bahama to premier construction services with the opening of Waugh Construction (Bahamas) Limited located on Shelly and Milton Streets.

An impeccable businessman with a passion for his country and community, Waugh joined the Rotary International organization in 1972.

Waugh exemplified the Rotary Club's motto "Service Above Self" and his efforts within the club both in The Bahamas and internationally afforded him the distinct privilege of being known as Mr. Rotary.
