There is an Official Edmundo Ros Website, which states he was born in Trinidad in December 1910. This means that he was just two months short of reaching his 101 birthday when he died yesterday. What a great age.
He retired to Spain in 1975. Mr Ros was awarded the Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, in the 2000 New Year's Honours List. Edmundo Ross OBE died yesterday, October 21, 2011, in Spain. RIP and condolences.
