The Saint Lucia media fraternity is in mourning after the deaths of Victor Marquis and Denish Monlouis.

A family member said Monlouis, in his early fifties, died Thursday morning at the OKEU Hospital, where he was in intensive care.

He had worked at several media houses, including Choice Television, the Government Information Service, and Winners TV, where he was the Production Lead.

A colleague at Winners TV said that the death came as a shock.

He recalled that Monlouis was a professional with whom it was a pleasure to work.

The colleague told St. Lucia Times that the deceased’s frequent assertion was, “When it comes to my work, I don’t play!”

The colleague said the death and that of several other media workers in recent times had caused him to reflect on his own life and rethink how he was living.

Monlouis died while a GoFundMe initiative was underway to raise money for his medical care overseas.

According to the GoFundMe page, on October 9th, he suffered from a stroke that led to a devastating fall, was hospitalised, placed in a coma, and suffered from severe bleeding in his brain.

Victor Marquis, a former Voice Newspaper Editor, died on Sunday at his home In Pavee, Castries.

On Thursday, the newspaper paid tribute to him, describing Marquis as ‘a prolific writer, author, critical thinker, funny man and all round great human being to be around.’

  1. RIP Monlouis. It is so sad so many of us have to go away just because we could not pay for medical care which is so very expensive regardless of where you reside in this world. It is a common denominator when it is comes to our health. There is never enough finance to take care of our medical bills. At the end we are left to die. The little that we work for and the little that we save for days such as sick days are never enough to meet that objective. We have been defaulting to “GOFUNDME” page or a littel “BLOCK-O.” Back then it worked but with the fast moving expense none of this will save us. We need to ensure we prepare for the worst but expect the best. The only way forward and the only way to extend our lives when tragedies like what Monlouis had to ensure is to insure ourselves. We need to be smart enough to put ourselves first and always remember, if you are alive you need t make provisions for the worst day of your live. Insuring yourself and your family is the way forward. Let us all encourage our leaders to establish a National Insurance which will ensure we are all ensured as citizens. No one should play with your health.

  2. I would love to own Victor’s Richmal Crompton’s collection…he was a good friend, Mary G was his favorite singer and he was a good cook too. May he rest in power…

  3. Extending condolences to Mr. Marquis son Jodie. A true neighbour on the pavee hill. Thanks to him for allowing his place to be used for the 13th December fireworks display. Very nice man in every sense of the word.

  4. My sincere condolences to you Denisha Monlouis on the passing of your dad, may God comfort and strengthen you during this time of bereavement.
