Tyrone Blake of Merritone Music dead

Published: Monday | April 23, 2012 Comments 0

Tyrone Blake, one of the four Blake brothers of Merritone Music fame, died yesterday along Kensington Crescent, St Andrew. He is the third of the quartet, after Trevor and Winston, with Monty Blake the youngest.

Tyrone would have been 70 years old this year.

Monty Blake told The Gleaner that Tyrone passed away in the company of himself and Winston, shortly after speaking to Trevor on the telephone. They were about to attend a brunch and "as we got there, he felt that he was not feeling well, and then he said he wanted to sit in the car a bit". Tyrone also complained of cold sweats and a severe headache.

"In the space of talking to you now, he was gone. The good thing is that he died with us - Winston, myself, and some good friends," Monty said. Tyrone did not respond to smelling salts. Paramedics were early on the scene, as was a personal doctor. Early indications are that an aneurysm could have been the immediate cause of death.
