Sabga’s wife praised at memorial
Dr Anthony Norman Sabga
would not have been as suc-
cessful as he was if not for the
support of his wife, Minerva,
ANSA McAL chairman Nor-
man Sabga says.
Sabga (N) made the statement
as he delivered the closing remarks
at the memorial tribute for his fa-
ther, the chairman emeritus of the
ANSA McAL group of companies.
Sabga passed away on May 3 at
the age of 94.
“My father had a wonderful life,
he lived a long life, he lived a suc-
cessful life, a life that was full of
love, success and God’s blessings,”
Sabga (N) said.
“I want to acknowledge that a
huge part of his success was the
role my mother played in his life
because if she did not also support
him and allow him the time and
the freedom which impacted part
of our time as a family, he would
not have been able to achieve what
ily are extremely grateful for my
mother,” he said.
Sabga (N) said his father’s sec-
ond family was the ANSA McAL
He said yesterday’s memori-
al was to ensure that part of the
family was able to say goodbye to
“I first want to acknowledge
that my family would have loved
for each and every one of you to
have attended the funeral but if
you look at the church today, and
you see the cathedral almost full,
there would have been no way we
could have accommodated every-
one at the funeral and it was for
this reason that we planned this
special service for the second half
of my father’s family, the ANSA
McAL group,” he said.
Sabga’s funeral was held on May
8 at The Church of the Assump-
tion, Long Circular Road, Maraval.
The memorial tribute was held
at the Cathedral of the Immaculate
Conception in Port-of-Spain.
Sabga’s three sons—Norman,
and the group’s deputy chairmen
Andrew and David greeted attend-
ees at the entrance of the church.
The memorial started promptly
at 9 am with the Love Movement
choir singing Reuben Morgan’s
Hear Our Praises.
Monsignor Christian Pereira
delivered the opening prayer.
Executive director at ANSA
McAL Ray A Sumairsingh deliv-
ered the welcome remarks and
reminisced about his 17 years
working alongside “the old man”.
Sumairsingh said Sabga not only
“gave you a fish if you needed it,
but he also taught you how to fish”.
Sumairsingh said he was
“coached by Norman how to in-
terface with his dad”.
Sabga (N) told Sumairsingh
“never to ramble or BS him” and
that he “prefers truth, honesty and
a valiant effort in attempting the
task at hand”.
“He would always encourage
you to stretch and reach beyond
ordinary results. He used to say
that if you aimed for the stars even
if you fall short you might reach
the clouds,” he said.
Sumairsingh said deceased
businessman Michael Mansoor
persuaded him that when you
work with Sabga you learn some-
thing every day. Sumairsingh said
“a truer statement” he has not
“Working with Dr Sabga was
a full education unparalleled by
any business school. Whether you
continue to work in the group or
not, some may have left, but all
recognise that we are better busi-
nessmen, better decision makers,
better leaders because of the cut
and thrust of being with Dr Sabga.”
Sabga was given a musical trib-
ute by Wendell Constantine who
did a remake of Leonard Cohen’s
Hallelujah in his honour.
Both Raviji Maharaj and Bro No-
ble Khan reminisced about their
time working alongside Sabga and
the humility and love he exuded.
