Well-known St. Elizabeth-based PNP activist, Danny Spencer, has died.

He died Wednesday night after battling illness for several years.

He was 71.

Spencer is the father of former North East St. Elizabeth MP, Kern Spencer and PNP candidate for South East St. Elizabeth, Dwain Spencer.

Several comrades took to social media yesterday to pay tribute to Mr. Spencer.

Among them was PNP Deputy General Secretary, Basil Waite.

Mr. Waite says Danny Spencer was an indomitable warrior for the PNP, a family man; and a serial entrepreneur.

Mr. Spencer narrowly escaped death last year when he was shot and injured by masked gunmen at his home in Russell Heights, Balaclava in St Elizabeth.

Spencer, who was a licensed firearm holder, returned the fire but the men escaped.
