Veteran St. Lucian musician Gordon Gene Leon, aka ‘Chacom’, died on Friday, Feb. 10 – about eights months after being diagnosed with stomach cancer.

He was 60 years old.

Leon was born and raised in Marchand, Castries but spent most of his school years in Trinidad.

His official entry into music began when he joined the Diamond Steel Ochestra but bloomed when he became a member of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Band where was to spend 37 years.

He formed the De Soca-Lypso Revue tent in 2011 and retired from the police force in 2012 as Acting Supt. of Police.

  5. Indeed he fought a huge fight. Normally cancer patients are either afraid or keep it secret but he was very open and very positive about it. May he rest in perfect peace. To the family my heartfelt condolences. To his friends be strong God cares.

    • Unfortunately stomach cancer like pancreatic or ovarian cancers are not easy to diagnose. When diagnosed it's usually in the end stage. Further cancer does not end where it starts. Your abnormal cells may break off in say your chest and lodge itself in say your toe (weird right) and radically start to mutate
