His contribution to the Merritone Sound System will be recognised during the annual Meritone Family Reunion in Connecticut in July.

“We will be honouring his contribution in his own way,” older brother Winston told the Jamaica Observer.

The Merritone Sound System was founded in Morant Bay over 55 years ago by the Blakes’ father, Val Blake.
