Sir Clifford Husbands was Barbados’ sixth Governor General, assuming the position on June 1, 1996, after Dame Nita Barrow, died in office in December 1995. Sir Clifford was the longest serving Governor General of Barbados, functioning as Head of State from 1996 until he retired in October 2011.  There will be a period of mourning for Sir Clifford Husbands from Wednesday, November 1, to Friday, November 3.
