Nassau – Bahamas Press is learning of the passing of former Director General of Tourism Mr. David Johnson. He lost his battle with colon cancer yesterday.

Johnson had succeeded Vernice Walkine, who joined the executive management team of the Nassau Airport Development Company and Lynden Pindling International Airport.

Tonight for his family, friends and the Nation we pray for his soul and that he finds rest eternal…Amen.
