My Dad recently passed away on April 9th at the age of 93. He had a long career in music and performed with with many of the greats of his era. Here he is performing Dixieland music in the early 90's in Budapest as part of an eastern European tour sponsored by the Canadian government to spread the joys of western music after the fall of communism, and filmed for Hungarian tv. Dad is on the trombone. The piano player of this band, Tommy Banks, was later created a Senator by then Prime Minister Chretien and served in the Canadian Senate for over a decade.

 

 

Here's to you on Father's Day Dad, we miss you.

^^^Sorry about your father's passing.

 

In 5th grade I learned how to play the trombone.

 

Last year my aunt and uncle in another state died and in February my other out of state uncle died. I have one uncle left, who lives in my state, but he's a recluse so I've only seen him twice in the past 28 years.  He's 94 years old and since last December it's become routine for me to get a phone call from the hospital telling me he fell down and could not get up. A couple of weeks ago he got a concussion from his fall. When he gets out of rehab he needs to move to an assisted living facility but he's going to fight that.

Thanks for your kind words Klaatu, and yeah, falling was the ending for my Dad as well. He started falling on a fairly regular basis and my Mom would call me down to their place to help pick him up, which I did a number of times. He got bruised but fortunately nothing was ever broken. Eventually it just got worse and he went for short stays at the hospital a few times but came home, and then after one fall out of his bed the paramedics came and got him, took him to emergency, where the doctor said, "you realize he's not coming home this time." When Dad became aware that he was not coming home he seemed to let go and it was over in a few days. The doctors told us that repeated falling had its source in the reduced mental capacity that often accompanies old age and was not strictly a physical problem.

But Dad had a long, productive and happy life over all. And his musical career was a successful one. I think I can safely say that during his prime he was one of the best jazz trombonists in Canada and he played with some truly great musicians. People like Louis Armstrong for instance, who he has just finished performing with in this back stage photo (circa early 60's?) and with whom he performed on a number of occasions.
