Happy 100th Birthday Daddy!

TRIBUTE TO LEROY MILLAR ON HIS 100TH BIRTHDAY
Congratulations to Leroy “Daddy” Millar on having reached the hugely significant milestone of 100 years of age. The members of the Barbados Bridge League and bridge players who visit and play at the League’s building in Belleville, all wish him many more years of health and happiness.
Daddy’s contribution to the Bridge League over the years has been immense. Before the purchase of our building in Belleville, Daddy provided space at a house in Hastings for bridge to be played. He played a significant role in supporting a bond issue put out by the League which resulted in our purchase of the building where we now play and certainly paved the way towards the financial stability of the Bridge League today.
Daddy also provided sponsorship for the team tournament which bears his name which continues to be one of the tournaments which contribute to players qualifying for national trials. This tournament remains the only League event that ever provided, in its early years, a cash reward to the winners, and a stipend for the director
With the acquisition of the Bridge Centre and his interest in the Retail Sector, Daddy functioned competently as Bar Secretary in the early years. Through him, Ricks Supermarket would also offer discounts to the League and the clubs with the purchase of items for the Christmas hamper prizes.
Daddy was made an Honorary Member of League during the 1980’s and was one of four persons honoured for his contribution during the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Bridge League last year at a function held at the Barbados Beach Club.
Daddy was always present at the League games on a Tuesday evening, the Hastings game on a Thursday evening and the Cave Hill game on a Saturday afternoon. He continued to play on a Thursday evening with his devoted partner, Pat Cummins, well into his 98th year and won that game regularly.
Daddy toured as part of the Barbados team on several occasions. Success at the local and regional level is reflected in the number of master points he acquired and the record shows that, despite the reduction of time spent at the bridge tables in recent years, Daddy still ranks 8th among the local players.
Daddy has given us many opportunities to celebrate with him and his family. His 90th and 95th birthday celebrations were memorable festive occasions at the Bridge League where bridge was set aside for the evening of good food and well deserved tributes. Today is another occasion to celebrate with him and his family on his 100th birthday.

The Jimmy Cozier Bridge Centre
The Jimmy Cozier Bridge Centre

Bridge has a long tradition on Barbados. Some years ago, the major Bridge Clubs on the Island joined together to form the Barbados Bridge League. The League has been able to employ the joint resources of the member Bridge Clubs to provide a dedicated Bridge Club building and modern computer dealing and scoring technology. It attracts the best players on the Island and yet retains the air of laid-back friendliness for which Barbados is famous. Jimmy Cozier was a club member who had the vision of such a league and the Bridge Club building is named after him.
