The late Dr Rudra Sharma was a great source of pride and joy to his parents and his wider family according to his uncle, Chandresh Sharma.
Dr Sharma died after the vehicle his kidnappers were transporting him and another doctor in crashed on the highway near Macaulay.
His uncle, a former MP and Government Minister, says his nephew was one of the top young doctors in San Fernando and was committed to his profession.
Mr Sharma says the health sector will feel his absence in tangible ways.
He laments that too many lives are being lost to crime and the time has come for us all to ensure it stops.
