Ralph Lindo Death, Obituary – We regret to inform you that retired PC Ralph Lindo passed away earlier today (Wednesday 22nd February 2023). Ralph has been deteriorating for a while. In September 1959, Ralph enlisted in the Bermuda Police as a young Cadet. When he was 19 years old, he enlisted in Basic Training Course #15, which took place between March and July of 1972. Afterwards he received a position at Central in Hamilton (Uniforn).
Ralph spent a short time in the Murder Room the following year before being transferred to Western (Uniform) in 1973. Prior to moving to Operations (Traffic) in November 1975, he worked for CID, Beach Squad, Central (Uniform), and both Central and Western (Uniform).
After settling there, Ralph worked for the Motor Cycle Patrol Section for the following eight years (MCPS). He had a great time working there. Ralph was moved to the Marine Section in 1984 after brief assignments as an assistant and on the CID Task Force.
There, he demonstrated that he was the best candidate for the position and was appreciated by everyone he worked with. Ralph worked very hard and was well-liked by his coworkers in the Marine Unit up until his retirement in 2007, during which time he received the Colonial Police Long Service and Good Conduct Award.
Ralph was a friendly worker for the Service and a dedicated member of the Police Recreation Club. After retiring, Ralph ran a cab company with a sizable clientele that included frequent travelers to Bermuda on business from various countries. Ralph kept in touch with the BPS and frequently joined us at our ExPo social gatherings. Together with his family, his many friends and former coworkers will all miss him terribly. We send Ralph’s family our deepest condolences and will update this page as soon as more details are available.
