JOE (JOHN C.) SHOWLER It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Joe on February 10, 2009 at Scarborough General Hospital, at the age of 65. Predeceased by his parents Cameron and Dawn Showler. Cherished brother of Barbara Showler-Lewis and Helen Moulds. Lovingly remembered by Susan, Kim and Alex. Sadly missed by Cathy. Joe was the world's foremost authority on the life and music of jazz trombonist Jack Teagarden. He will be greatly missed by collectors and friends all over the world. Friends may call at the Turner & Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. W. (at Windermere, east of Jane subway) for visitation only on Monday, February 16, 2009 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. and on Tuesday, February 17, 2009 from 10 a.m.- 12 p.m., followed by interment at Park Lawn Cemetery. A celebration of Joe's life will be held at a later date.
Just heard (and confirmed elsewhere) that the well known Jack Teagarden collector and discographer died earlier this week.
Will post additional details if I can find them.
