Lamont St John passed away last week. There is a memorial today from 11-1 for him at Ortiz Funeral Home on 1st Ave (next to Lucky Changs), and then it will continue after at Raga (from 1:00-?)
If you've eaten at Raga, Lamont was the tall, very beatitful and hilarious man with gorgeous dredlocks and a massive smile. You may have seen Lamont in other places over the years. He was a very loving & caring EV/LES icon who worked at Little Rickies throughout the 80's and 90's. He's lived on Rivington for decades, and took care of so many people in the neighborhood and was a friend to all. he'll be missed.
