Gratitude for the Life of Brenville “Bulla” Hanna 


I was saddened to learn of the death today of Mr. Brenville “Bulla” Hanna, a devoted son and citizen of The Bahamas, faithful FNM and friend to many.  On behalf of my colleagues in Government and the Free National Movement, and on my own behalf and that of my wife, I extend condolences to the family and friends of one who will be greatly missed.

“Bulla” Hanna loved his country and contributed to its development in the realms of business, politics and culture.  A banker for many years, he was also a Junkanoo enthusiast and a frontline politician, political strategist and ardent campaigner for what he believed.

Formerly Chairman of the PLP, he served on the Executive of the FNM and was the candidate for Englerston in 1992, helping to bring the Party to office that year.  Though unsuccessful in that bid, he played a major role in the FNM’s victory and continued success in office.

In addition to “Bulla’s” many contributions to national life, he will be remembered for his warmth and generosity.  Moreover, he taught us in the way he lived and the manner in which he departed this life, how to appreciate the gift of life, with generosity and equanimity.

The FNM joins with his family, numerous friends and colleagues in saluting such a fine spirit and expressing thanksgiving for a life well lived.  His example will continue to inspire, and is a reminder to all of us to live graciously, with generosity and gratitude.
