Philipsburg:--- Guyanese businessman Mark Anthony Deygoo (34) who was shot five times during what appeared to be an armed robbery last week Wednesday was laid to rest on Thursday. The Thanksgiving Ceremony was held at the New Testament Church of God on Back Street.
The late businessman was described by family, friends and co-workers to be quiet, friendly and one that was always willing to give assistance. His former boss from Shipwreck Shops said that Mark was someone he loved as his own son; he was always willing and kind to others.
Prime Minister Sarah Wescot Williams, Deputy Prime Minister Theodore Heyliger, Minister of Education Rhoda Arrindell and Minister of Labor Cornelius De Weever were among those who paid their last respects to the late Deygoo and his family.
Co-workers wept throughout the thanksgiving service since they saw Mark the day before he was shot multiple times in his store on Back Street.
The late Mark Deygoo leaves to mourn his wife Padmini, only daughter Kimberly, his father Edward, two brothers Chris and Navin and his only sister Sharon.
