Reverend Archer died at 1:45 this morning at the University Hospital of the West Indies where he had been admitted for more than a month.

He was 61.

The award-winning, internationally acclaimed spelling coach has been hospitalised since December 9 last year, due to chronic kidney failure.

He had been suffering from renal failure for the past five years, requiring dialysis two to three times per week.

But his condition worsened in December when he got the Chikungunya virus.

Following his dialysis this morning, Archer complained of severe headache and feeling hot.

He asked for his family to come in.

Hours later, he was diagnosed as having a stroke.

His caregiver and family members were at his bedside at the time of his passing this morning.

Archer was a recipient of the Order of Distinction and recently received The Gleaner’s Honour Award for Excellence – Special Award – for education.
