thank you so much am really working on finding any newspaper pictures of him as he was a well known musician. The only thing is that the info for my aunt Beatrice in obit has wrong name for her husband (weird) but I was only 18 at the time

Debbie, I found about nine other articles at in which he was mentioned, but none had photographs of him. Here are links to three of them.

Ad - there were a few of these.

Article - a couple of articles about this event.

Article 2

thank you so much I am on a big hunt today - I personally have quite a few pictures but the thing I would love to be able to find is a recording of him playing The Last Post or actually anything that may have been taped of Grandpa playing his trumpet.  He continued to play at Shaughnessy Hospital for the vets there every Christmas until his last 1971 at age 82.  He also played orchestra pit in Orpheum Theatre and was a member of Josh Boyer's Rube Band but hard to find anything about Josh Boyer's band. I do have a picture of him and the group for Josh Boyer Band taken at Kitsilano Beach in Vancouver. If you have any suggestions would greatly appreciate.  Many many thanks
Is it possible to get the other articles as you mentioned there were about nine. All help greatly appreciated







I've already linked to all the others.

This means so much to me now I have Josh Bowyer correct spelling and will search through that name as well again many many thanks
