In memory of
James Deans Telfer
JAMES DEANS TELFER Died May 20, 2009, in his 61st year, at Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga after bravely enduring a long illness. Beloved brother of Ian (Nancy) and Margaret (Ed). In the 1960's, Jay was an integral part of the Toronto Yorkville musical scene with his band A Passing Fancy and played at every high school dance in Southern Ontario. In his solo career, Jay wrote and recorded many songs, but is best remembered for writing 'Ten Pound Note' recorded by Steel River. Jay was a guitarist in the original Toronto production of the musical Hair and went on to become an award winning Hollywood screenwriter. He was the founder, editor, publisher, and typesetter of The Wayback Times, Canada's largest newspaper for antique collectors. In everything he did, Jay was quirky, headstrong, and loving. The many people whose lives Jay touched will miss his humour and interest in people and all things artistic -- but we will always have his music. A Memorial Service will be held for Jay in the Chapel at Turner & Porter 'Peel' Chapel, 2180 Hurontario St., Mississauga (Hwy. 10, north of the QEW), on Friday, May 29, 2009 at 9:30 a.m. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Canadian Hunger Foundation ( www.chf-partners.ca ) 323 Chapel St., Ottawa, ON K1N 7Z2, 866-242-4243.
