MacNames, G. PeterIt is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Peter MacNames, one of the founders of the Brantford International Jazz Festival, and member of it’s Board of Directors.

Peter was one of the early driving forces for the establishment of the Festival, together with Frank and Nancy DiFelice. He had a lifelong love of music and enjoyed listening to and playing Jazz stylings from the American songbook.

Peter will be greatly missed. Deepest sympathies and heartfelt prayers go out to his family and friends.

The funeral service for Peter will be held Tuesday, October 1st, 2013, 12:00pm – 1:00pm at the Beckett Glaves Family Funeral Centre located at 88 Brant Avenue, Brantford, ON. (Map)
