Hundreds gathered as 33-year-old millionaire, identified as Sheron Sukhdeo was buried in Trinidad and Tobago on Friday.
Sheron Sukhdeo before he was killed
The young Estate agent and car dealer was buried in a reportedly $50,000 casket as family and friends mourned. Sukhdeo was shot multiple times in a drive by attack outside the home of his relatives at Caroni Savannah Road, Charlieville shortly before 9p.m in Trinidad and Tobago last week Monday.
The father of two died while being treated at a hospital and according to local media, he left behind an empire worth tens of millions of dollars to his wife and kids.
A report by NewsDay revealed that Sukhdeo’s send-off reflected the life he lived – luxurious vehicles, excessive gold jewellery, friends and family, loud music and a car show.
Just before his body was reduced to ashes, Sukhdeo was showered with Moët champagne at the Waterloo Cremation site in Carapichaima.
The 33-year-old father of two flashed his wealth on social media. He was also revered by those who associated with him and referred to him as the “World Boss.”
He died shortly after at the Chaguanas Health Facility.
At his funeral service at his palatial home in Orchard Gardens, Chaguanas, hundreds turned out to mourn. The car and real estate dealer’s luxury vehicles and other fast cars lined the street as mourners awaited the arrival of his body.
His images and his monkier were everywhere. Two large trucks also blared music.
When the body arrived, his bronze-coloured casket was opened for the viewing of the body. Sukhdeo’s body was dressed in white and around his neck were his thick, heavy gold chains with massive medallions and other large pendants, reaching down to his waist.
His family also placed a pair of Timberland boots in the casket.
The media were prevented from entering his home at the request of Sukhdeo’s wife, Rachael.
After the Hindu funeral rites were performed by his family, the body was transported to the Waterloo Cremation site.
Along the route, Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs and Faith Evans’ I’ll be Missing You was played on repeat on the music trucks.
Rachael, who, in 2016, posted photos of herself showing injuries she suffered during a beating from Sukhdeo, wept continously, as she embraced their two children.
The businessman was charged twice for assault in February 2016 and later in May 2017 but the charges were dropped after his wife refused to testify.
She gave him his last kiss before the heavy jewellery was removed from around Sukhdeo’s neck and his casket placed in the pyre.
It was then bottles of champagne was poured on the body and the car show began.
On the funeral programme was a poem, “Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems to be the same. But as God calls us one by one, the chain will be linked again.”
