On behalf of the Board, the Port Director, the Management and Staff of the Port Authority, we extend our sincere condolences to the family of Robert “Robbie’ Hamaty, who died on Saturday June 13, 2020.
Mr. Hamaty was known world wide for the famous Tortuga Rum cakes, a product of the Tortuga Rum Company that he and his wife Carlene started in 1984.
Mr. Hamaty’s relationship with the Port Authority spans decades as he operated stores on the Port facilities and around the immediate area. He was a kind man, with vision and purpose. He always looked for ways to improve the experience for the visitors and residents of the Cayman Islands and did his best to look out for the smaller businesses who existed around him as well. He will be greatly missed by all who interacted with him and knew him. He was an inspiration to many.
To the Hamaty family, we are sorry for your loss and we pray that you will find comfort in the many, many happy memories you have of Mr. Hamaty. God bless you all and may Mr. Hamaty’s soul Rest In Peace.
