James Anthony " Jimmy" TAPP
By Colleen TAPP, Tuesday, January 11, 2005 - Page A18
Television pioneer, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, voice of Hercules. Born in Ottawa, April 18, 1918. Died November 20, 2004, of pneumonia in Oakville, Ontario, at 86.
Jimmy TAPP was born at the end of the First World War, the second of seven children born to George, Canadian Pacific Railway train conductor, and Kathleen TRAVERS, she from County Kildare, Ireland.
Jimmy loved to tell stories of his youth in Ottawa through the roaring Twenties and the great Depression. His favourite story was about buying his mom a box of coffee creams for Mother's Day and sharing them with every pal he met on the way home. There was only one left for his mom but she loved the story even more than coffee creams.
It was while serving overseas as an officer in the Royal Canadian Navy in the Second World War that he began his lifelong love of broadcasting and a career that spanned five decades. Jimmy hosted a closed-circuit radio show, spinning discs on board the H.M.C.S. Wasaga, and when the war was over, he studied radio broadcasting at Northwestern University in Chicago. During a training session at NBC, he met the lovely Mary Agnes MORONEY, and after a whirlwind 11-day courtship, married her in November, Jimmy and his new bride moved to Montreal, where he became a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation announcer, and had many successes as a radio executive. As his little sister, Shirley, said in his eulogy, Jimmy was born with a microphone in one hand and a business card in the other, but his real passion was performing. His talents were ideally suited to an emerging new technology that was in its infancy: television. He hosted the first show on CBMT, Montreal's Canadian Broadcasting Corporation English station, on January 10, 1954. Those early days of television were exciting, with only a channel or two; if you were watching in Montreal, you were probably watching Jimmy TAPP.
As host of The Tapp Room, the first television talk show of its kind in the mid-1950s, Jimmy interviewed every big star from New York to Hollywood, such as Bob Hope, Ed Sullivan, Gregory Peck, Tony Bennett and Joan Crawford, to name a few. The stars often commented on how much they enjoyed working with him and how well he had done his homework. Although he hosted a number of successful television and radio shows, he is probably best known for being the voice of Hercules in the original hit cartoon, The Mighty Hercules. Over the years "Herc" delighted his five children, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren with cheers of "Olympiaaaah!" upon request.
To his family, and others who knew him, Jimmy was larger than life. Although in very poor health in the months before he died, he was still "hosting" from his hospital bed, entertaining his audience and regaling his family with old memories. In his last days he talked with increasing clarity about his career and his life, how he was blown away to have participated in that inaugural Canadian Broadcasting Corporation broadcast, and how it was through his family that he really made his mark in this world. It was profoundly moving to watch him muster up all his energy to sign a 58th anniversary card for Mary despite being barely able to lift his hand or speak by then. He managed to eat a little (for her sake) and enjoy a little party with the family in his hospital room; he died peacefully a few days later.
Ten days after his death, Jimmy was inducted in to the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame and received a tribute he would have loved. At his grave, where we said our goodbyes for the last time to the man who was, in his four-year-old grand_son's words, a "real live superhero," Mom quietly sang an Irish song and we saluted our beloved Dad with one last "Olympiaaah!"
Herc would have approved.
Colleen is Jimmy's daughter.

A Tribute To Marion
(written by one of Marion's special Friends)
Such a special friend is so hard to find, and we were so blessed to call you "mine".
You cherished your family with love and pride, and graciously took each day in stride.
Together with Bruce you shared a wonderful life, you each chose so well for a husband and wife.
Your children you cherished, your precious grandchildren as well, with each new arrival your heart would swell.
Your gardens, your flowers you tended with care, your gifts and your talents you would unselfishly share.
Your quiet little chuckle, your beautiful brown eyes, your welcoming home, your meals and your pies.
As a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a grandma, an aunt, a niece or a friend, you loved each and everyone right to the end.
In cards we were told we didn't play our hands, so we laughed and we chuckled and tried a new plan.
But trying to play like the men soon went amuck, because they really never had a plan.. just plain old luck.
A campfire, a New Years eve party, a visit... whatever, we always had such a great time together
We will cherish always these wonderful things, especially now that you've been given your angel wings.
We know not what the Lord has in His plan, so we will carry on bravely and try to understand.
Your journey has been such an incredible one, but far too soon, that journey was done.
Your reward in Heaven will be great I know, for your faith and your courage you would always show.
Some days like these in life it seems the pleasures are few, but we only have to recall what a pleasure it was to have a friend like you!

Crisis nurse slain by half-brother
Family and Friends of Lorraine and Paul EGAN are stunned by the Sarnia murder-suicide.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter
A London native slain by her suicidal half-brother was a dedicated nurse who cared for Sarnia's mentally ill, loved ones recalled yesterday.
Colleagues were stunned -- and family members devastated -- by the killing last Thursday of 29-year-old Lorraine EGAN, a veteran nurse with Bluewater hospital's mental-health unit.
She was shot inside her upscale Sarnia apartment complex by sibling Paul EGAN.
The 44-year-old father of six then shot himself, police said.
"I don't know what happened," Audrey HATCHARD, Lorraine EGAN's maternal grandmother, said in a brief telephone interview yesterday. "I just know it's a tragedy."
To HATCHARD, the details leading to Thursday's shooting at 1285 Sandy Lane -- the posh lakeside highrise Lorraine had called home since February -- were still unclear. The brutal slaying was made all the more painful because of Paul EGAN's involvement.
"It's a terrible thing and none of us expected it," HATCHARD said.
Lorraine and Paul EGAN share the same father, Maurice, who died about five years ago.
Ellen EGAN, Lorraine's grieving mother, declined comment.
Sarnia police were also tight-lipped for similar reasons yesterday. Because they often bring the mentally ill to the emergency ward, many officers knew Lorraine EGAN and worked with her regularly, Const. Bill BAINES said.
So-called crisis intervention nurses also deal with victims of sexual assault and other traumatic incidents. Lorraine EGAN's dedication to the job was praised by BAINES and other colleagues.
"Lorraine was known for bringing fun to the unit," said Donna MORREAU, who worked with her for seven years. "She was very vibrant (and) energetic.
"There's still quite a sense of loss at the unit. Her loss is extremely difficult."
Lorraine EGAN grew up in London and fell in love with Sarnia while studying nursing at Lambton College. She had worked at Bluewater hospital for seven years.
Sarnia police, called to Sandy Lane about 6: 30 p.m. Thursday, found two bodies in a main-floor common area of the 12-storey complex. Investigators focused on a short hallway leading to a rear exit.
A tenant living above the hallway said he heard two shots, a woman's screams, then two more shots.
Though police immediately deemed the incident a murder-suicide, the victims weren't identified until yesterday.
The building has security cameras, but details of any images captured haven't been released.
Little is known about Paul EGAN, who lived in Forest. Contrary to one widespread rumour, he is not a former Sarnia police officer, Mayor Mike BRADLEY said.
He was, however, an active member of his family, said HATCHARD, included in all holiday gatherings.
The loss of Lorraine EGAN has stunned the clan, she added.
"She was the most beautiful girl to look at," HATCHARD said, noting her lone granddaughter was a perennial honours student.
"They (Lorraine and her mother) were very close. They contacted each other two and three times a day."
