It is with deep regret the South-West Regional Health Authority joins the national community in mourning the passing of one of our icons, Ken “Professor” Philmore who passed away earlier this morning. “Professor” succumbed to his injuries while warded at Intensive Care Unit, San Fernando General Hospital following a vehicle accident last Monday.

A true pioneer of the national instrument and our culture, he has left a profound impact on the national steel pan community. We are saddened not only at the passing of a tremendously talented individual but also for the loss his family suffers.

The SWRHA extends our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. May our prayers and support surround them throughout this trying time.
