John Mason, of St. Lucia, has drowned, the St. Lucia Times has reported. His body was discovered at the Rodney Bay Marina about 9:30 a.m. Aug. 20.

The 49-year-old craft vendor, AKA Jahman (Gods Man) and Bob Marley (his trading name), provided fruit and vegetables to boats in the marina and had many friends in the yachting community.

A native of St. Lucia, Mr. Mason walked with a limp from a broken leg in boyhood that was not properly set. He sold jewelry, hats and baskets made of coconut leaves at Rodney Bay and Pidgeon Point, and offered tours of the island.

Police say there was no indication of foul play in his drowning.
