Gros Islet MP Expresses Sympathy After Deaths Of Clergyman And Business Owner


Gros Islet MP Kenson Casimir has extended condolences following the deaths of clergyman Winston Taylor and business owner Conrad James.

Both died on Saturday.

Taylor was a deacon and a former adjutant of the Saint Lucia Cadet Corps (SLCC).

James launched the first Dr. Freezer’s ice cream parlour and fast food outlet on High Street, Castries, some thirty-nine years ago.

“In less than 24 hours the people of Gros Islet lost two very influential individuals in the community,” Gros Islet MP Kenson Casimir wrote on Facebook.

” I remember making my first communion at the Gros Islet Catholic Church during the time that Father Goodman oversaw proceedings with Winston Taylor on his side. That image keeps going through my head over and over again,” Casimir said.

“I remember passing by Castro’s Bar, which ironically is not very far from the catholic church, and encountering the ever eloquent Conrad James for the first time. He invited me into his home much like the Taylor family welcomed me into theirs,” the Youth Development and Sports Minister recalled.

“Sympathy Greetings goes out to the Taylor and James family. Be strong in this difficult time. Your MP is here with you always. May they both rest in peace!” Casimir said.

  1. hmmm its funny after all those years how Doctor freezers lived in Gros Islet but never opened a branch there. Is there a branch there? does anyone know?

  2. @ma malay … sa pa zafeh-ou!! If you KNEW the James family, you would know that the first Dr Freezer’s on High Street was the James family home years before YOU were a spark in your patents eyes. Mr James also used his “marketing” skills for the location of Dr Freezer’s – something you, obviously, know nothing about.
