Domingo Munro of Gouyave died

In the building directly in front of the Gleans home on Central Depradine Street and directly opposite the Gospel Hall(?) which is now used as a grocery shop, was where Sampson, Ming, Domingo, and later joined by Figs, practiced their tailoring profession. Sampson migrated to England, and Ming and Figs moved to the building in front of the post office. That's the popular "Tailor Shop" that has become legendary in Gouyave.
Domingo remained in his tailor shop for quite some time despite the stiff competition from the by far more popular "Tailor Shop."

Now I could have sworn that I heard that Domingo had left this earth a long, long time ago, even long before his younger brother (or was it his nephew) Jacket died in that horrible fiery death.
Let's just say that the flavor of Gouyave would have been missing an essential ingredient had there not been a Domingo "Bro" Munro as one of its sons. Nuff said!

My deepest sympathies go out to Maureen, Pansy, and all his surviving relatives. He will be fondly remembered. May he rest in peace.

My condolences... May Allah (God) the Most Merciful grant him a place in His Paradise and may He grant comfort and forbearance to the family he left to morn...Ameen

I use stop at his shop when I was a boy and watch him work. At that time I wanted to learn tailing with him, but that was just a fleeting thought, I would have never been able to stay with it as my nature was always to roam. From time to when I would go back home, I would stop at his shop on what I use to call call Kepuche alley because Mr.Hugh Donaldson who we use to call Kepuche live on that street. I always enjoy a wonderful conversation with him mostly we spoke about the young people's problems and their disrespect of the elders. The last time I saw Domingo was at his home in Douglaston a few years ago. He was a good soul who stood for what was right.

Re: Domingo Munro of Gouyave died

For more than twenty fours years, I heard that Domingo had died.

I grew up in Domingo's Tailor Shop on Lower Depardine Street. I was one of his pupils. Together with me was Sydney, a son of Mush and Miss Ennis from the Central District in Gouyave, were eager young man that wanted to learn the trade. We did well, as aapprentics, moving away quickly from hemming trousers to sewing on the sowing machines. The peddling of the old Singer Machines were a complete workout for the feet.

Domingo was a strong man; he'd faith.in God. His slender frame gave him the personality of quietest tall man, who walked with his eyes on the path he was on. He'll greeted people with manners and, so, he'd gained the respects of everyone for himself in return.

A lot of men used to hang out with Domingo in his tailor shop, which was located on the ground floor in the building before the Market, to talk about everything. The discussions and laughter were like a cold wind, sweeping through a hot room! From that, Sydney and I took away some very interesting lessons, and used them up wisely.

For one thing, Domingo received hot lunches from home everyday. He wasn't a mean man; he shared his lunch with Sydney and I, if we were up to eating.

Domingo was right on point when he spoke. With some of the most influential words, he advised you seek the right results in life in general. But he had aa medical conditio,n that, aactuallydid not affect his performances at work.

I used to be scared to death, when he got sick, although he recovered shortly after, and again, looked like a fresh man, energetic, and continued sewing.

In that same building where Domingo's Tailor Shop was, the Spraying Gang had their warehous. With the chemicals just next door to Domingo Tailor Shop,.ccould have been a problem for him. Hiweher, I don't know the reason for the medical condition that he had. I loved been around him so much!

Domingo was a bright light in pitch darkness!

My sincere condolences to his family,.friends,.and relatives,

May Domingo soul Rest in Peace.
