When Steel Talks expresses heartfelt condolences to Samantha Nicholson, wife Jean, and the family and friends on the passing of Mr. Cyrus Busby, a member of Despers USA and D'Radoes Steel Orchestras in Brooklyn, New York.  He passed away earlier this evening, shortly after 6:00 p.m. in Brooklyn.  Mr. Busby was the ESSENCE of Pan in New York.  He was always clear on the direction that Pan here should take.  Cyrus grew up in Gonzales in Trinidad.  He will be sorely missed.

My condolences to his family and many friends.  He was truly one of the strongest supporters of pan in New York, and will be sorely missed.

Condolences to the Busby family on the passing of Cyrus, on behalf of Desperadoes Steel Orchestra.

I remember when I told Cyrus it was his cousin Denzil "Belt" Botus that put in the chromatic run down in Desperadoes' 1967 Panorama tune, Mr. Prospect, he was very impressed. Cyrus will now be the flag waver up there.

sympathies to the family.

My condolences to the family and friends of Cyrus, he will be greatly missed; my prayers are with the family.

As the sun rose over the Gonzales hills to bathe the Gloster Lodge Street where the Busby family resided Cyrus could be seen playing in the yard. Today his sun sets in Brooklyn. A committed pan lover he will be missed. Condolences to all his family and loved ones. 

My deepest condolences to the Busby family. Cyo was a great pan lover. He will surely be missed by all panjumbies. May his ancestors accept him on his next journey. Does anyone know when is the body viewing and where?
