Gordon Gene Leon (Chacom)

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Gordon Gene Leon. According to sources he passed away at Victoria hospital approximately one hour ago, at 4:45pm Saint Lucia time.

He had been battling a very publicized fight against stomach cancer which led him to seek medical attention in Canada and Grenada.

Well known as ‘Chacom’ he was a long time member of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force Band holding the rank of ASP.

He was also one of  the founding members of De Soca-Lypso Revue calypso tent. He was also a founding member of the band Third Eye with Augustin Jab Duplessis, and subsequently established the band Equinox

He hailed from Marchand and had been an avid football player representing the RSLPF, and other teams.

Last year Gene vowed to beat cancer. Sadly he was not successful in that endeavour.

He leaves behind many loved ones, including family and friends throughout Saint Lucia and the region.
