By Aaron Humes: Tonight, the family of the late Dr Fernando Cuellar has announced that his remains will be returned to Belize for a planned celebration of his life.

Dr Cuellar died at 7:09 p.m. Pacific time, an hour behind Belize time, at the MemorialCare Saddleback Medical Center in Laguna Hills, Orange County, California (south of Los Angeles), where he was being treated for a back fracture and newly discovered blood cancer.

The family was present at his bedside. In a formal statement, the family said, “He wanted to fight. He wanted to return to Belize, to his family, to continue to serve the people of Belize. Instead, God called him home.”

BBN extends our condolences and wishes for eternal rest.
