I was a 24 year old young man living in Harlem, NY. When some of my Trinidadian friends invited me to a Caribbean Concert at Carnegie Hall. This took place in 1964. This was my first time hearing and seeing Pan Am play and it was at this event when the Host made it known to the audience that Anthony Williams had cultivated the youngest bass player on his roster and that player must have been you!...It is an extreme pleasure for me to write these words directly to you to express my admiration for your participation, to me, the 'Greatest Steel Orchestra' Trinidad had produced during that era. Thank you for your contributions to this great orchestra, which to me, was a Band that was ahead of it's time!
Our condolances to the Clarke family on the passing of Ronald, from Bob Theroulde , founder of Flamingoes and Exodus, now residing in Edmonton ,Alberta Canada. I would visit with Ronald in the pan yard on my trips home . It is so sad that he passed away in such a terrible way.We all will miss a good friend and top pan man . Deepest sympathy from all " PanAm's" friends here in Canada, from Bob "Crazy" Theroulde and family.
My condolence to you and your entire family in your moment of sorrow. I don't think any among of words can bring comfort in times like this or explain the madness taking place in the human family. stay strong. your comrade in music. "Radoes".

I will excuse you seeing that you were offline for some months. Trust me, I cannot explain who I am ,but if you see me, you will give me that usual laughter and a lil "wha goin on bredder?. So take it for granted, ah fuh real. I know you as the little boy from North Stars. I guess you have told that to plenty people, huh! I sought your friendship and cancelled it when I got no reply, so you are now excused. Pax et Amor.
