The St. Lucia Calypso Association (2009) and De Soca-Lypso Revue have expressed condolences at the death of retired teacher Cyprian ‘Goulou’ Simon, who was found dead at his home in Cacao, Babonneau on Tuesday, July 8.

Simon was described as an “ardent calypso fan”.

“The St. Lucia Calypso Association (2009) would like to extend sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Cyprian “Goulou” Simon on his passing. Mr. Simon was an ardent calypso fan and he will be a loss to the calypso fraternity. He will be greatly missed,” the Association said.

“On behalf of De Soca-Lypso Revue, we too would like to extend sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Cyprian “Goulou” Simon on his passing.  Goulou was a friend and an ardent calypso fan and he will be a lost to the calypso fraternity. He will be greatly missed.”

Simon taught at the RC Boys Primary School.

Reports are that the Babonneau Police Station received a call at about 3:40 p.m. that the former teacher’s body was found at his home on Levern Spencer Drive in Cacao, Babonneau.

Residents say Simon, 57, was found in his yard wearing slippers. It is not clear whether he was clothed. Relatives theorise that he collapsed Sunday night while preparing to or taking a bathe by a drum outside the house.

He was last seen by a cousin on Sunday. Reports are that he was wearing plaid shorts at the time.  Those were found today on his kitchen floor.

So far foul play is not suspected in Simon’s death, police sources say.

  1. 'Top man' to borrow his own phrase. He took me under his wings as a rookie teacher and showed me the ropes. Not only did he mentor me then but always encouraged me afterwards. Five days ago I thought of my next visit home and looked forward to seeing buddy.

    I can't remember Si without a smile on my face. He could make you laugh at the saddest of times.

    My deepest condolences to his family.
