The sad­dest news

Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE - By Abd Al-Rah­man Al-Alyan Con­spir­acy my­opin­ion@kuwait­times.net

Kuwait Times mourns the pass­ing of one of its old­est and most ded­i­cated pro­fes­sion­als to­day af­ter his sad and un­timely death yes­ter­day. Xavier Mo­raes was an ex­cep­tional jour­nal­ist, a hard­work­ing and hard driv­ing editor and ded­i­cated to the news­pa­per. Xavier joined the pa­per when I was around six years old. I re­mem­ber go­ing to the of­fice with my dad and he would call me over to his desk, hand me pens and pa­per and in­vite me to color. He was a fix­ture in Kuwait Times, steady and re­li­able as a clock and one of the peo­ple that con­trib­uted to its suc­cess for more than the 30+ years.

In his role as Sports Editor, Xavier al­ways knew the im­por­tant games - and the lat­est foot­baller gos­sip - and how to get the best of sports news to our read­ers. He was a vi­tal part of the ed­i­to­rial team and a leader in his cho­sen pro­fes­sion. Per­son­ally, I al­ways knew the man to be a pol­ished pro­fes­sional who got the job done even some­times in the most chal­leng­ing of cir­cum­stances. I can­not thank him enough for his long ser­vice and con­tri­bu­tion to the Kuwait Times. Nei­ther he nor his stamp on the news­pa­per will ever be for­got­ten. My deep­est con­do­lences to his fam­ily and May God Almighty Rest His Eter­nal Soul.
