JARRETT, Merrick (1924-2005)
Following a lifetime filled with music and joy, Merrick died peacefully in Peterborough, Ontario, December 6, 2005, a year after the death of his dear Mary. He will always be loved by his sister, Sheila, and his three children, Linda (David WHITFIELD,) Stephen (Theresa MORRISSEY,) and Kate (John HART.) " Muk" was very proud of his eight grandchildren, Lindsay and Andrew WHITFIELD Adam, Michael and Peter JARRETT; and Terry, Martha and Rachel HART. He will also be missed by his nieces and nephews, Brian, Robin, Kim, Andrew and Rob. Merrick JARRETT was a singer of folk songs, piper and yodeller extraordinaire. His mother, Sassa, instilled in him a love of folk music at an early age. He began performing on radio station VORG in Newfoundland, and continued with programs on CKEY, CHUM and CFRB in Toronto, as well as a number of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio series. He made a number of recordings, and performed at various folk clubs and festivals, including Mariposa. Thousands of children were introduced to folk music through his concerts in schools and libraries across Canada. For 17 years he taught folk music at Conrad Grebel College, University of Waterloo. Merrick was the recipient of the 2002 Kitchener-Waterloo Arts Award (Music). Family and Friends are invited to share memories of Merrick's life on Friday, December 9, 2005 at the Sunshine Centre, 141 Father David Bauer Drive, Waterloo, Ontario, from 3: 00-6:00 p.m. To honour both Mary and Merrick, a donation to Lisaard House, 990 Speedsville Rd., Cambridge, Ontario N3H 4R6, would be appreciated. "It sounds an echo in my soul, How can I keep from singing?"

McLELLAN, Angus Ronald
Born April 18, 1924 in Glasgow, Scotland. Died March 1st, 2005 in Victoria, British Columbia after an eight year struggle with the effects of a stroke. Only child of the late Helen Stewart and Angus McLELLAN Sr. The family immigrated to Toronto when Angus was a child. He grew up in East End Toronto. Most beloved husband of Patricia. Also survived by Pat's brother Brian DOWNES, his wife Jenny and their children Sam and Lucy in England; cousin Archie McGUGAN and Elizabeth in Victoria, cousins in Scotland and Pat's extended family of Aunts and cousins in England, Toronto and India.
To correct a stammer (that's another story!), Angus applied to and was accepted by at the Lorne Greene Academy of Radio Arts in Toronto. He was an early graduate. He became head Writer for Greene's daily newscasts on CKEY when it was the #1 station in Toronto. After CKEY, Angus was one of the founders of the television station in North Bay, Ontario
In the mid-'50's Angus moved to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio News in Toronto. He had found his niche in broadcasting! He originated Sunday Morning Magazine and The World At Six (and Eight) and Radio News' national coverage of many federal elections. He also did a stint as Executive Producer of Specials for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television News, responsible at the time for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Watergate coverage. He was briefly Executive Producer of W5 for CTV. Radio remained his real love and he returned to it for the rest of his working life in Toronto until he and Pat moved to Victoria in 1982.
He was a very strong supporter of public broadcasting and of equality and social justice for all. He considered his documentary on the American singer Paul Robeson one of the highlights of his career along with his two-hour documentary and analysis at the end of the Viet Nam war.
No service and no flowers by Angus's very specific request. Donations may be made to Doctors Without Borders, #402 - 720 Spadina Avenue, Toronto, Ontario. M5S 2T9 or Mount Saint Mary Hospital, 861 Fairfield Road, Victoria, British Columbia V8V 5A9.
A Memorial Tea will be held on Thursday, March 10th, 2005 at 2.00 pm at First Memorial Funeral Services, 4725 Falaise Drive, Victoria, British Columbia V8Y 1B4.
