Victor Frank Bland passed away peacefully, on September 23, 2021, at the age of 87, after a brief illness with cancer. Born in London, England, Vic moved to Canada in 1957. Upon arrival, he quickly developed a passion for playing the saxophone and clarinet, which led to distinguis­hed and lengthy careers as a high-school music teacher and profession­al performer. Former students and band mates will fondly recall his remarkable expertise and lightning-fast wit both in the classroom and on the stage. In these places, he also continuall­y demonstrat­ed his unique musical talents and his total devotion to the old adage that the show must go on ̫ no matter what.

Vic is survived by his children Deborah, Steve and Susan, and his grandchild­ren Andrew, Nicholas and Sarah. In lieu of Љowers, donations to your favourite charity in Vic's name, would be greatly appreciate­d.

RIP - V.F.B.
