To the family and friends of Dave Marcelin may the almighty God grant you the strength and courage to cope with your great loss may you also seek his guidance now and always knowing he will never forsake you.
From my family and I
May he rest in peace
Damn! And I was so hoping to see my brethren when i get to T&T in a few weeks. I just mailed him to day.
If anyone has a phone number for the family, please send it to me so that i can contact them personally.
I was shocked when StClair Baltazar called me today and told me that Dave, my friend and brother had passed. We have been friends from school days, I lived around the corner from him in St.Joseph Trinidad,where we attended the same elementary school. After migrating to the United States our paths crossed again when he came through New Orleans persuing his music, I was living there and we hooked up again. I then moved to Laredo Texas because of my job and came to Houston one day. Somebody told me that Dave Marcellin lived there and we hooked up again and I eventualy moved to to Houston back in 1988 and we stayed hooked up. When I got married Dave played "High Mas" all through the ceremony and when my daughter got married he did the music again. My little daughter affectiionately calls him Uncle Dave. I have watched his daugthers grow up and was present at eldest girl's wedding.This Carnival season we hanged out at Desperadoes Panyard and I visied him at his perents' home as I usally do weather he is there or not.Mr and Mrs. Marcellin and the rest of the family please accept condolences from my family and I. May God give you all the strenght and courage to cope with such a great loss. Cheryl and the kids Judy, Nicole and I will always be there to lend what ever suppport we can. God bless Dave and his family and may he rest in piece.
Another great has passed my condolences to the family we will remember him through the music
My thoughts and prayers are with his family. RIP
