Former tourism minister Francis Tulloch dies | News

Former Tourism Minister Francis Tulloch passed away this morning. He was 81 years old.

The late lawyer, first elected to Parliament in 1972, represented the St. James Central constituency for the People’s National Party from 1976 to 1980.

He also served with Hanover Eastern from 1993 to 1997 and St James North Western from 1997 to 2002.

Tulloch was appointed Minister of Tourism in 1997 and served in that capacity in the administration under P.J. Patterson for two years.

The father of six was married to Doreen Perry-Tullock at the time of his death. It is unclear how Tulloch died, but he was diagnosed with prostate cancer a few years ago.
