Public works minister Patricia de Lille is mourning the death of her husband, Edwin, who succumbed to a long illness on Sunday evening.  

De Lille confirmed his death this morning.

The pair were married for 49 years.

Paying tribute to her husband, De Lille described him as a loving father who supported her throughout her political career, giving her the freedom to fully pursue her work in serving the country.

"Our marriage was built on respect. Eddie was a true partner in the sense of the word and never stopped me from following my convictions. There was respect and support until his final days and I will miss him dearly."   

Edwin leaves behind his wife and son, Alistair de Lille.
