For My Ionview Friends

May 23, 2008 @ 07:44

When I say for my Ionview friends, I mean friends of mine who went to the same public school that I did.

Ionview Public School on Ionview Rd in Scarborough. Ionview Rd is the first right off Eglinton Ave, heading west from Kennedy.

I went to Ionview Public School from 1961 to 1969 and while I was there one of my friends was a guy named Trebor Hosier. (yes Trebor, not Trevor) He lived on Lozoway Dr. and he was a bit different. Not in a bad way, in a creative way.

In fact when we were still at Ionview he put a band together called "Hosiers's Hotshots", and they played in front of the school a couple of times.

Hosier's Hotshots also featured Alan Falkner and Mike Adomite.

Anyway, needless to say, like most people I've lost touch with most of my friends since the Scarborough days, and I haven't seen Trebor since the early 1970's.

But thanks to facebook, and the wonderful way it brings people together, I got an e-mail from someone else who went to Ionview (someone I don't even remember), and she told me about an article in the Lindsay Post Newspaper.

It turns out Trebor still has a passion for music and he's turned it into a business enterprise. He's opened the "Youngtown Rock and Roll Museum" in the town of Omemee, which is just west of Peterborough and was once the home of Neil Young.

That's where the "Youngtown" comes from.

It's small and somewhat out the way, but it's something and it's something that was created by one of my old Ionview friends, and that's pretty cool.

On that note, if your read this blog and you used to go to Ionview or you know Trebor, hit the discuss button and let me know. I'd love to hear from you, and I'll pass it along to Trebor.

And thanks to Michele Miller Dames for tipping me off.

Hey Fred, How are you, I saw Kim Jackson on Yonge St. last week, I've bumped into her a couple of times over the years she lives in Leaside. Is that Joe that was in the german dance group on Tiny talent tim? I saw Trebor at the WCCI reunion a couple of years ago. Take care, keep in touch.

I saw Trebor recently and have his buisness card on my desk at home. He is very involved with the health business in Lindsay.
Thanks for mentioning our band. Don't look for a reunion tour.
Trebor = Robert backwards.
His dad.

Also, If you, and Steve, would show up for the Ionview boys annual golf get together (30 years now) you could catch up with a few of the others.
Always a fun time.

Hi Fred

What a great article, Michele had forwarded it to me a couple of days ago and had mentioned that she was also sending it on to you. Al thanks for sharing the mystery behind Trebor's name (Derek Cunningham) and I were discussing T.R.'s name just this morning and wondering why he was named Trebor. We also saw Trebor at the school reunion, already feels like ages ago...think it's time we all had a reconnect!!!

Hey guys... nice that a few know of the new project... the name game ...Trebor vs Trebor... I do not use Trebor anymore as it causes confusion as indicated here! Trevor or my life-long handle "T.R." will be fine. Cool to here of all my old friends... I have been a professional family counsellor for near 30 years, a rock n roll collector for 40.. still "different" thank God...has served me well! Send me a note at My best, T.R.

My brother also went there, and name is Dave Miller..
I used to hang out with Karen Hamilton, and if someone could give me some info on her, that would be great.
Also, did Trebor Hosier have a sister named Karen. I remembered her quite well.

If I were you, I'd better change myself. Males likes that silicon dolls that they search at pornosites and striptease. So I'd try to enlarge my bosom and my lips. If you try to find a good clinic in your hood, you can make a newer, sexiest Ann, so desired for Tom
