In memory of

James Toland

January 13, 1940 -  February 2, 2019

Our family is sad to announce the passing of our Father, Grandpa, Brother and Uncle, James Toland. Husband to the love of his life the late Maureen (McShane), Father to Vanessa and her husband Michael and to John and his wife Angela. Grandpa to Sierra, Dylan, Cole, Avery and Gavin. Brother to Phyllis, Myra, Madeline, Emmon, Clare, Martin and Breidge and Uncle to many nieces and nephews all in Derry, N Ireland. The only thing he loved as much as his family was music. He was a talented musician who found his way to Canada in 1966 with his showband and he continued to play in many bands over the years. He loved and played many genres of music and instilled his love and passion for music in his family and friends. His voice and the sound of his guitar (his blonde) will be missed.

We knew Jim and his wife Maureen, Vanessa and John for many years. We often went with Maureen to watch Jim play with his group at different clubs. So very sad to hear he has passed, sending condolences to John,Vanessa and their families.

I have fond memories of my uncle Jim through my life when he returned home from Canada. We were always excited to see him. He was a kind, gentle man who loved his family and his music. My thoughts are with our cousins Vanessa and John and their families at this difficult time xx
