MONTEGO BAY, St James — Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) General Secretary Dr Horace Chang described Dr Marco Brown, who passed away Thursday morning, as an outstanding son of the city of Montego Bay.
The medical doctor and outstanding former JLP representative died about 3:00 am. He was said to be in his 90s.
"He was a fighter for the people of St James, a real warrior for the less privileged of St James. We will miss him. Condolence to his family and the many friends he had in Montego Bay. A real outstanding son of this [Montego Bay] republic," Dr Chang said.
"Marco was an outstanding member of the Jamaica Labour Party who served as councillor, then as Member of Parliament, chairman of western Area Council, then as deputy leader," Dr Chang said.
"He was a man who gave full service to the people of St James, and, of course, he was an outstanding physician. Many of our outstanding figures of St James were delivered at his delivery suite on Lawrence Lane, [Montego Bay]. So he served his people professionally and he also volunteered as a public servant. He also made an outstanding contribution to the political development of St James," Dr Chang, who is also the Member of Parliament for St James North Western and deputy prime minister told the Jamaica Observer.
