Known throughout Belize as an author, musician, a salesman out at Tourist Village, Ras Fari, 68, was the spiritual leader and elder for one of Belize’s Rastafarian communities.

Originally hailing from Jamaica, Ras Fari was born Boyse Miller and was also known as Tuffist, according to Ras Ruben, who spoke with Monica Bodden at 7 News Belize.

Since arriving in Belize in 1990 he has been actively promoting the ideals of Rastafarianism.

According to Ras Ruben, “We just want to tell the people them all around – all the ras from near and far that we are going to hold a ceremonial service to lay his body to rest and for the transition on Sunday 20th of October at Rootsville, Belmopan.”

“It’s going to be rasta oriented and rasta led. We are going to have the road mark between miles 47 and 48. We are going to have like a flag or some kind of symbol outside to lead the people to the gathering. The funeral starts at 11 and the body will be on state from 10 for viewing.”

According to Ras Ruben, Ras Fari was diagnosed with cancer some months ago.

“He has set a lot of pillars. He is our elder in the entire houses of Rastafari in Belize; boboshanti, Nyabinghi – all Rastafari. He is like the pillar of the movement in Belize.” Ras Ruben said.

We send our condolences to Ras Fari’s family, many friends and the community he represented.
