So many fond memories of my dear Uncle Darnley “Seco” St. Clair Ashby. A big smile and thunderous laugh and a devotion to pan and the Calypso music art form. Like my dad, he loved his family dearly and treasured occasions when all could be gathered together. He truly enjoyed life. We love him, will miss him but I’m convinced we will enjoy his company again according to the inspired promise at Acts 24:15 - And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection.... Our deepest condolences to our family. Love you all!
