Celebrated guitarist Jeff HEALEY dies of cancer
By Colin FREEZE, Page A3
Toronto -- One of Canada's most famous guitar players has died.
Jeff HEALEY, a 41-year-old musician who sold more than a million records in the United States, died yesterday from cancer, a rare form of which took his eyesight as a child. The Torontonian's most famous hits included Angel Eyes, See the Light and a cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps by the Beatles.
"Early last year, HEALEY underwent surgery to remove cancerous tissue from his legs, and later from both lungs," said a statement posted on the musician's website yesterday. It continued: "aggressive radiation treatments and chemotherapy, however, failed to halt the spread of the disease."
The site noted that a rare form of the disease, retinoblastoma, took Mr. HEALEY's eyesight when he was a baby.
"He was a virtuoso guitar player, and they don't come along every five minutes," said Richard Flohil, a long-time friend of Mr. HEALEY's and, in recent years, his publicist. "He had an enormous range of musical genres he could play with great skill."
He said that children with retinoblastoma stand a 50-50 chance of developing other cancers later in life and that, because of this, Mr. HEALEY would quip, "I'm in the wrong 50 per cent."
At the apex of his popularity, Mr. HEALEY - who learned to play the guitar as a toddler and grew up to play with the instrument resting on his lap - was a fixture on rock radio. He was nominated for a Grammy and earned a Juno Award in 1990 as entertainer of the year. That year, he also played a musician in the movie Road House starring Patrick Swayze.
Over the years, the guitarist was increasingly involved in jazz. As the host of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's My Kind of Jazz, his programs often showcased his collection of thousands of 78-rpm records, many from the early 20th century. He also ran a couple of Toronto nightclubs that carried his name.
This spring, Mr. HEALEY had hoped to tour in support of a rock/blues album, Mess of Blues, which is being released in Europe this month and next month in North America.
The guitarist, who leaves his wife and two children, last blogged about his condition in January. "I will be off to a clinic in Henderson, Nevada, for the first two weeks of February as part of an eight-week program I'm going to take," he wrote. "This involves my alternative therapy, but my wife and I seem to feel that it offers up some very potentially positive results."
He expressed optimism, talking of impending tour dates.
"At time of writing, my energy is up, my spirit is strong and I'm ready for anything… We're all quite excited about the upcoming CD."

'He had so much joy'
The blues guitar legend also had a passion for old jazz and a drive that kept him touring even while fighting cancer
By Guy DICKSON/DIXON, Page R1
In the case of guitarist Jeff HEALEY, his death from cancer on the weekend wasn't an occasion for those who knew him to reflect in astonishment on how much he accomplished in his 41 years. They knew every day how much he had going on.
From his start as a Grammy-nominated rock and blues prodigy - with his guitar blazing on his lap, his mind's eye reaching for euphoria - Healey's true passion nevertheless tilted toward the jazz of the twenties, thirties and forties. And that is what he dedicated his later career to, after having reached rock stardom.
He never completely let go of blues rock, which he played with a unique verve, slide and scream on par with his friend Stevie Ray Vaughan. He also recorded with such artists as George Harrison, Mark Knopfler and B.B. King, and he still toured now and then performing blues rock (particularly in Europe), although playing trumpet and acoustic guitar in Jeff Healey's Jazz Wizards had became his main gig.
But there was much more to Healey. "He was somebody who moved ahead very quickly on all fronts. He had so many different things going on all the time in his life," said Holger Petersen, president of Edmonton-based Stony Plain Records, which issued some of Healey's later albums.
He was also running his downtown Toronto nightclub, continuing his long-running radio show My Kinda Jazz, building his collection of more than 30,000 78 rpm records that fed his radio show and were stored in his Etobicoke basement. The list could go on exhaustively.
What many would add to these accomplishments was his battle with cancer, having lost his eyesight as a young child to retinoblastoma. But to say he led a lifelong fight against cancer is wrong. Richard FLOHIL, who knew HEALEY for years and was his Toronto-based publicist, said HEALEY had been considered cancer-free for decades.
About two years ago, cancer returned. He required two operations to remove two sarcomas in his legs. Then in early 2007, cancerous tissue was discovered in his lungs and was removed. But a relapse required aggressive radiation and chemotherapy in the final eight to nine months, FLOHIL said, but it couldn't stop the spread of the cancer.
Yet to understand HEALEY, it's important to note that this wasn't an artist living with disease. He had considered it behind him. Even when it returned, "he was a very positive person who always thought he would be able to defeat his disease," Petersen said from Alberta. He had continued to tour while fighting the reoccurring cancer and had major European tours planned later this year. "He had so much joy. You could see that when he was at home and onstage. If you ever saw Jeff HEALEY onstage playing music, you knew how much joy there was in that for him."
Had there been any pressure to go back to lucrative rock music rather than follow his passion for jazz?
"Jeff was a very strong person who really had his priorities as far as music goes, and he knew exactly what he loved best. That was where he put most of his energy," Petersen said. "He was very accommodating for anyone who wanted to talk about jazz from the twenties and thirties and his love of that. He was very open and generous about that. [But] for people who wanted to do interviews about Jeff the rock star, he was really less accommodating about wanting to have that as the focus."
"Been there, done that" are the words often attributed to Healey as to why the rock and touring life no longer held much interest, along with his desire to remain close to his 13-year-old daughter and three-year-old son. But it does little to explain the drive to follow his jazz passion. For instance, years ago, he helped to issue a CD compilation of rare recordings of Fletcher Henderson with Louis Armstrong, Petersen noted.
It only proves yet again that successfully creative people are not just talented at their particular specialties, but are energized, multifaceted phenomena whom we are lucky to have witnessed.

HEALEY, Evelyn Annie (née WILSON)
Wife, mother, nana, teacher, author, driver, adventurer. Born December 6, 1918, in Darlington, England. Died December 20, 2007, in Toronto of uterine cancer, aged 89.
By Catherine ROUSE, Page L10
To say that Evelyn was a survivor would be an understatement.
Born Evelyn Annie WILSON, she experienced many tragic events in her life, but she didn't just survive. She loved life. A more apt description would be adventurer.
Evelyn's father was killed by a sniper during the First World War, before she was born. She and her mother immigrated to Canada when Evelyn was 8. At age 16, she was left to fend for herself when her mother died at 36.
Fortunately there was Art, her beloved. She was his "girl next door" in Toronto from the time they were 12, and when Evelyn's mother died she turned to him for comfort. Even though the Second World War separated them for a time, they married in 1945 and started their life together. They had six children, five girls and one boy.
One of the greatest tragedies of Evelyn's life was the loss of her only son, Glen, to leukemia when he was 7. Tears sprang to her eyes whenever his name was mentioned. She was never the same after his death, but her fortitude saw her through.
Evelyn thrived on adventure. Family road trips, camping and annual visits to the Canadian National Exhibition and the circus were a treasured part of our childhood.
Nothing could keep Evelyn down. She learned to swim and ride a bicycle in her 60s, went whitewater rafting and learned French in her 70s and went tubing on the lake at my sister's cottage at 82.
Evelyn worked part-time as we were growing up but was mostly a housewife, a term she was proud of - although keeping house was definitely not her passion. She was too busy moving from one adventure to another, always busy at Hilltop Chapel, a non-denominational church she and Art helped to establish. Sunday afternoons would find one of the chapel families at our house for our traditional lunch of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding.
When Art passed away in 1983, Evelyn was heartbroken. She knew she would never love another man the way she had loved Art. But life went on and Evelyn kept busy, teaching medical secretarial procedures at night school and even publishing her own Canadian textbook because she felt the U.S. text didn't accurately apply to the Canadian course she taught.
Evelyn loved to drive and she did so until last fall, when she became too weak.
Her grandchildren remember her as the "cool" nana, the one to whom you could say just about anything. Her daughters remember her as a strong-willed, free-spirited, independent woman, and we are proud to say that we picked up those traits.
Catherine ROUSE is Evelyn's daughter.

Police link deaths 50 km apart
Possible murder-suicide as woman's body found in Sutton home, man's on railway tracks
By Phinjo GOMBU, Staff Reporter, March 10, 2008
A man and a woman found dead in different parts of the Greater Toronto Area are linked in a possible murder-suicide, police say.
The body of a missing 27-year-old Newmarket woman was found by York Region police in a house on the main street of Sutton, near Lake Simcoe, on Saturday.
Investigators have not officially released her name and have refused to say how she died, but people who knew and worked with her said she was Brenda HEALEY of Newmarket.
Earlier Saturday, the man now suspected of killing her, Steve DANIEL, 41, was killed by a train near Thorah, in Durham Region's Brock Township, 50 kilometres east of Sutton.
Two investigations were launched until Durham police found a car linked to HEALEY near the train tracks, and a car registered to DANIEL was found at the home in Sutton.
"The two investigations are linked," is all York Region police Inspector Mark BROWN would say, adding police are not looking for any other suspects.
DANIEL, a former resident of Sutton, once lived next door to the home of the family friend where HEALEY's body was found.
HEALEY's family refused comment when contacted by the Star.
Both DANIEL and HEALEY worked in nearby Pefferlaw for Lois and Doug ANDREWS, who operate a bus company called Have Bus Will Travel, as well a private transportation company that serves the disabled.
DANIEL worked as a dispatcher; HEALEY was a driver. DANIEL had also lived in the ANDREWS' home for the past nine years.
"We are just floored," Lois ANDREWS said yesterday at their country home near Highway 48 and Pefferlaw Rd. as they tried to come to terms with the deaths.
The couple, who last saw DANIEL on Friday, said they did not suspect anything was wrong.
DANIEL's last words on Friday -- "See you at 10 o'clock" -- to Doug ANDREWS, indicated he would return later that night.
Lois and Doug ANDREWS described DANIEL as a charming, friendly and loyal employee who went to the local Knox United Church. As far as they knew, DANIEL and HEALEY were just Friends.
Other residents of Sutton who knew DANIEL, however, said there was a dark side to the man, whose family once owned what is now Village Traditions, a small gift store on High St.
Several residents told the Star DANIEL had spent time in jail after he stabbed a woman about a decade ago.
Outside the home yesterday, homicide investigators, in a large mobile command trailer, waited for a search warrant to enter the house.
The home belongs to John LEAROYD, whose father Harold LEAROYD was a well-known town dentist for many years.
John LEAROYD, who is believed to be in his 70s, has been in a Newmarket hospital for the past month after he was injured in a fall.
It's unclear whether DANIEL had access to LEAROYD's house, but neighbours and Friends said that the two got along well, with DANIEL often helping him with errands and other tasks.

Missing woman drowned
Body found in bathtub of Sutton home on same day as murder suspect killed himself, police say
By John GODDARD, Dale Anne FREED, Staff Reporters, March 12, A missing 27-year-old woman whose body was found in the bathtub of a sedate country home was drowned, an autopsy has determined.
The body of Brenda HEALEY was found Saturday in a latticed Sutton house on High St.
Police believe the Newmarket woman was murdered by a man who killed himself the same day.
On Saturday, Stephen DANIEL, 43, was struck by a train 50 kilometres east of Sutton, near Thorah, in Durham Region.
HEALEY and DANIEL were once co-workers at Have Bus Will Travel, a private transportation company serving the disabled and based in Pefferlaw, also east of Sutton, DANIEL's hometown.
HEALEY worked as a driver, DANIEL as a dispatcher.
DANIEL had lived at the home of his employers, Lois and Doug ANDREWS of Pefferlaw, for the past nine years. They never saw anything amiss, a shocked Lois ANDREWS had told the Star earlier.
But other residents said DANIEL had served time behind bars after he was convicted of stabbing a woman a decade ago.
DANIEL's car was found outside the Sutton home where HEALEY's body was found.
A car linked to HEALEY was found at the train tracks where DANIEL's body was found, police said.
Police said his death was deliberate.
"Durham police are investigating a suicide and we're investigating a homicide," said Duty Inspector John BURNESS of York Region police.
Currently, DANIEL is considered a suspect in HEALEY's murder.
"There's no other outstanding suspects," said Burness.
"However York Region homicide officers are continuing their investigation," said BURNESS.
"They want to make sure every avenue of the investigation is looked at before they come up with their conclusions."
DANIEL once lived next door to the Sutton home where HEALEY's body was found.
The owner of the home, John LEAROYD, had been recuperating in Newmarket hospital for the last month after injuring himself in a fall.
DANIEL had remained Friends with his former neighbour, a man in his 70s, acquaintances have said.
A funeral mass is to be said for HEALEY at Saint_John Chrysostom Roman Catholic Church in Newmarket at 10 a.m. Friday.
HEALEY's family was too distraught last night to talk about their loss.
"We're still grieving. Please give us our privacy," HEALEY's brother-in-law, Brian BAXTER, said from the dead woman's family home in Newmarket.
BAXTER said the family would be issuing their public message at the funeral.
Friends mourning the loss of Brenda HEALEY wrote of their loss on a Facebook page.
"She will always be remembered as a wonderful human being," wrote one friend.
"May you rest in peace, dear Brenda."

McLEOD, Thomas Hector MacDonald "Tommy"
Thomas McLEOD was born in Weyburn, Saskatchewan in August 1918. He was an only child. He took his schooling in Weyburn, graduating from Weyburn Collegiate with honours. It was in Weyburn that Tommy met T.C. Douglas, the young Baptist minister who would play such an important role in his life. During the Depression, Douglas organized a boys' group which devoted its time to sports and boxing, and to debating and drama. Douglas was a graduate of Brandon College, and persuaded several of his 'boys' to attend that venerable institution. There Tommy received a B.A. with distinction. After a Masters degree from Indiana University, he was urged by President Evans to come back to Brandon to teach Economics, where he stayed for three years and also met his beloved wife Beryl.
In 1944, when T.C. Douglas led the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation party to a landslide election victory in Saskatchewan, Premier Douglas asked Tommy to come and work for the new government. Tommy said that he would have to consult with the College; Douglas breezily replied that he had already sent his resignation to the President. Thus began an exciting period of his life, beginning as advisor to the premier and general troubleshooter, taking on assignments as Secretary of Health Services Planning, Secretary of the Economic Planning Board, Chair of the new Budget Bureau, and ending as Deputy Provincial Treasurer. In between jobs, he earned two degrees from Harvard University, a Masters in Public Administration and a PhD in Economics.
When University of Saskatchewan President W.P. Thompson called in 1952, offering the position of Dean of the College of Commerce, Tommy decided to begin a new challenge. He enjoyed the Saskatoon experience immensely. During this period he also served on several boards and commissions, chairing the Saskatchewan Commission on Taxation.
In 1964 Tommy returned to Regina as Dean of Arts and Vice Principal at the new university. In 1971, the Canadian International Development Agency offered a broader mandate, where Tommy joined the senior ranks of Canadian International Development Agency travellers, attempting to sort out administrative problems in several countries, including Turkey, Iran, Nigeria, and Botswana. So the family moved to Ottawa, where they stayed for 26 years. Tommy moved from Canadian International Development Agency to the Federal Management Institute, acted as administrator of the Anti-Inflation Board, and held other management positions. Among other honours, he was especially pleased to be awarded the Vanier Medal from the Institute of Public Administration in 1971 and the Order of Canada in 2003. He co-wrote a popular biography of T.C. Douglas with his son Ian; Tommy Douglas, Road to Jerusalem was published in 1987.
In 1997 Tommy moved to Victoria, loving the gardens and life style. He died there peacefully on New Years' Day, 2008. He leaves behind his loving wife and companion of over 62 years, Beryl, children Beth BILSON, Ellen (John HEANEY), Ian (Vicki McLEOD), Brian (Lorraine THOMAS,) and Morna (David FIRMAN,) grandchildren Max BILSON (Jane CHAPCO,) Kate BILSON (Paul BEKE,) Martin and Brendan HEANEY, Adrienne and Kelly Firman McLEOD, and Tom and Will McLEOD. His family and many Friends will remember his wit and wisdom, his sincere modesty, his devotion to family, and pride in his children's many accomplishments, his unfailing good humour, his rapport with students, his negotiating and administrative skills, his ability to relate to almost everybody, and his keen interest in music, books, cooking and gardening. Indicative of his wide ranging tastes was that his favourite poets were Robert Burns and Rumi.
(Epitaph)
Know thou, O stranger to the fame
Of this much loved, much honoured name
(For none that knew him need be told)
A warmer heart death ne'er made cold.
Robert Burns
A memorial service will be arranged at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Tommy and Beryl McLeod scholarships at Brandon University, 18th St. Brandon, Manitoba, or donations to United Nations Children's Fund or the Stephen Lewis Foundation would be appreciated.

LECHTZIER, Dorothy Beatrice (née HEARD)
Born November 29, 1927 to Albert and Kathleen HEARD, " Bette" grew up in Vancouver living the epitome of west coast life. She attended Lord Kitchener Elementary, Lord Byng High and then University of British Columbia where she joined the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority and earned a B.A. (English).
Bette met Merton (LECHTZIER) at a Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club dance and, after converting to Judaism, married him on August 12, 1953 at Beth Israel Synagogue. The Tennis Club became a central part of their lives both for sport and Friends and they were active members there for over five decades. Mert and "Beebz" (as she was affectionately known) moved to Shaughnessy in 1955 and remained there for the next 40 years. They loved to travel and spent many wonderful holidays with Friends in exotic destinations. They were also great entertainers and hosts, and their home became the venue of all manner of parties over the decades.
Though Bette was part of the Doctor Spock generation, she was also a mother in the mould of Donna Reed. She was the purveyor of the most wonderful comfort food (as we now know it) and had an encyclopedic knowledge of how to make secondary meals out of an original source reflecting the thrift of her leaner years. She was also a resourceful epicurean, leaping at every opportunity to retrieve fresh delicacies from the country, blackberries from the lane or dandelion leaves from the shoulder of the highway.
Like Mert, Bette loved fashion but above that style. Her nose for a good sale was legendary and she had a wonderful ability to mix a modest wardrobe into something very chic. Bette was also strongly independent and, as her motherly responsibilities began to wane, pursued many projects on her own. To no one's surprise greater than her husband, Bette became both a shrewd investor and successful B&B proprietor.
Above all else, Bette was great fun; a hybrid personality of (I Love) Lucy, Carol Burnett, Mary Tyler Moore and Marty Feldman. She was a wonderful friend and neighbour and the source of wild and wonderful antics and stories. Bette had an infectious laughter which could permeate a room in an instant. She was a great dancer (and loud singer), a wonderful raconteur, would mimic any person at the drop of a hat, and a boundless source of old English rhymes. She loved dark chocolate covered anything, liked to poke you in the ribs after a minimal of prodding, and thought Michael Caine, Gene Hackman and Gene Wilder were drop dead gorgeous (all of them strangely having coifs like her husband). She was always cold (especially the tip of her nose), could stick her tongue out in more directions than most reptiles, and was a little tornado of activity in the garden.
In the late 1990s, dementia took hold of Bette's personality, twisted it and slowly robbed us of her unique laughter and charm. However, even through this difficult period, Bette still managed on occasion to emit a little twinkle from her eye and a merry laugh to brighten a room. During often desperate years, Mert was a loyal and loving companion and caregiver of unlimited capacity who made any sacrifice for his beloved wife. Bette escaped her torment and let go of life on April 10th at the age of 80 in Vancouver. She has been, and will continue to be, sorely missed by many and is irreplaceable.
Bette was predeceased by her beloved husband Merton in December 2006 and is survived by her sister Sally MIDWINTER (James) of Ottawa her three children, Matthew of London (England), Paul (Jennifer DOLMAN) of Toronto, and Sally RUTLEDGE (Jeffrey) of Vancouver, as well as six grandchildren; Sam, Adam and Emma RUTLEDGE, and Harris, Sasha, and Abby LECHTZIER.
The family thanks Helen Combs for her loving care and devotion to both our parents over five difficult years. Donations to the Pacific Alzheimer's Research Foundation at www.parf.ca or 604-678-8138 are gratefully appreciated.

WITHERS, Eileen Anne (née TRAYNOR)
It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Eileen WITHERS, after a short and courageous battle with lung cancer. On Friday, June 13th, she died peacefully with her husband and two children by her side in hospital in Halifax, age 61. A woman whose journey through life blended several families in many locations, including homes in Scotland, England, Gatineau in Quebec, Ottawa, Halifax, Toronto and finally retirement in Windsor, Nova Scotia. Daughter of proud parents Harry TRAYNOR and Katherine (née GILL) of Halifax. Beloved wife and best friend of Thomas (Ted) WITHERS. Cherished mother of Sarah (Keith BENNETT, Toronto) and Adam MAHONEY (Kendra HURSHMAN, Windsor.) Dear stepmother of Rob MAHONEY (Tracey SLITER, Ottawa), Paul WITHERS (Judy MYRDEN, Halifax) and Carolyn (Andy HEARD, Salt Spring Island, British Columbia). Precious sister of Ian (Ottawa) and Gordon (Halifax), she was predeceased by her sister Christine (Bryan UNSWORTH, York). Eileen will be sadly missed by her extended family and Friends in the United Kingdom, the U.S. and throughout Canada. Born in Greenock, Scotland, her family moved to England before she started school. An avid sportswoman and student, tennis and grass-hockey were balanced by studying mathematics and chemistry, eventually completing an honours degree in Economics at the University of London. In 1968, shortly after arriving in Canada, she realized that her French skills, learned in England, were not sufficient so she enrolled in a French ski school. That way, she could learn to ski and speak French at the same time. Her strong work ethic and commitment to efficiency helped propel her into senior policy roles in several federal government departments, and trade negotiator for International Trade Commission. Eileen was truly a remarkable and multifaceted woman whose interests included her pets, wine making and antiques. Always fond of puzzles and games, the complexity of duplicate bridge enchanted her. She was a Life Master, certified as both a director and teacher. She also judged competitive debating teams. A collector by nature she attended estate auctions most weekends. Travel often centred around a theme, first bridge tournaments, then 'collecting' state capital domes in the United States, and finally, viewing paintings by Vermeer in museums around the world. Her love of art was shared with Ted. In recent years, her generosity led her to volunteer with seniors at the Windsor Elms, especially in the Palliative Care Unit. An active member of her church, she was a Eucharistic Minister. Funeral mass and celebration of life were held in Windsor, Nova Scotia In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, or your local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Animal Shelter. Private messages of condolence can be made in the 'Guest Book' at: www.familycare.ca She met each challenge in her path with grace and wisdom and it was the gift of herself that she gave to others.
