Koady Chaisson Obituary – Koady Chaisson, who lived only east of Souris, kicked the bucket on Jan. 6 at 37 years old.
“All of us are simply so crushed,” vocalist lyricist Catherine MacLellan told the SaltWire Network on Jan. 7. “It’s so surprising to consider somebody who was simply in the prime of his life and the prime of his music profession. He was simply a particularly wonderful individual. It doesn’t appear to be genuine.”
MacLellan said she got to know Chaisson when he began playing in the East Pointers with his first cousin, Tim, and Jake Charron.
“He was a motivation to me; somebody that I gazed upward to and respected. He was generally so kind and amusing. He could generally make you giggle.”
One of her beloved recollections was offering the stage to the East Pointers in Woodford, Australia, before an enormous group. MacLellan said the last time she talked with Chaisson was at the Christmas show at the Confederation Center of the Arts in Charlottetown where the East Pointers’ banjo player portrayed the show. Island artist Tara MacLean said she is crushed.
“The primary thing that strikes a chord about Koady is only his amazing consideration, his essence, and his brightness,” MacLean said. “Any time I got the opportunity to talk with him I was simply struck all of the time by what a fortune of a man he was.”
