The 34 year old father of one, with another on the way, was remembered as a loving, generous, always great to be around kinda guy.

Affectionately called 'Ger' by family and friends, Mason was a solid rock, a shoulder to lean on.

Olympic champion Usain Bolt, other Jamaican Olympians Michael Frater and Nesta Carter, as well as former Reggae Boyz stalwarts Ricardo "Bibi" Gardner and Ian "Pepe" Goodison were all in attendance, and their mood was sombre, many times reduced to tears, as they tried to comprehend the tragic loss of their dear friend, Ger.
