John Winston Glean also known as “Makeke” of Gouyave, passed away
Thanks for including the nickname, otherwise I probably would still be wondering who the deceased was. To us, his Gouyave contemporaries, he was Winston Frederick, aka Makeekee.
He was the character I referred to in A PLACE CALLED GOUYAVE as Ma-kee, "the younger brother I longed to have." Like Selo, Bascombe, Jigoree, Pork Sauce, Sticky Poe and the many others, KeeKee was instrumental in my growing up in the area of Gouyave that w e called "The New Street Boys." Years later when I returned and visited him, I could hardly believe that the young, robust, muscular Keekee had deteriorated into a pitiful figure that illness had completely over-ridden.
Walston "Figs" Romain(RIP) was the first to point out to me as it turned out, that A PLACE CALLED GOUYAVE was really my way of inadvertently keeping alive the memories of those dearly beloved friends of our youth. Therefore it is with a heavy heart that I bid Kee-Kee goodbye as he takes his leave to move on to that eternal realm that we all will return, sooner or later.
To all his relatives and friends, I extend my sincere condolences. Rest in peace John Winston "Makeekee" Frederick Glean. May the good Lord bless and keep you, my brother.
