Very special web page.
James is a cousin of mine,on my moms'side(attfield)
I have fond memories of James,and his music.Unfortunately,another memory, was meeting him for the first time at the Qeensway Carleton Hospital in Ottawa.I had already heard much of his wonderful music at a young age,and met him at the hospital.He was wearing a white robe,long hair,and very pleasant.I was 16 at the time,and was told he was not doing well.We had a nice family visit with James.I have always remembered it over the years and have a greater appreciation for his life,and music, as time has evolved.
Thankyou for your efforts here.
Long live his spirit,and music...
Cheers,
Ron

Hello fellow James Leroy fans. I met James in Calgary,
Alberta in and around 1977-79. Me and my friends used to frequent a club called the Refinery. He would open for a band called The Terry Crawford Band. He and they were amazing. Got to know James a bit(I think he had a crush on my sister)and we all really liked him. I actually have a note he wrote on a cigarette package way back then. It was an inspirational quote. I know I still have it somewhere so when I find it, I can share it with you if you are interested. I was very sad to hear of his passing years later when I saw the band(Moncton or Halifax) and they told me about it. Great guy/musician. RIP James.

This is great to have a tribute site like this. James Leroy was and still id one of my favourite musical artists. He touched my life a lot in the 70/s He played in the Sault a lot and I went to see hin everytime he came. He worked here as a DJ and managed the Sawmill Lounge at the Water Tower Inn for a while. He is greatly missed!

Thank you for this site. I remember James Leroy's music so well and have been searching for his story and music for a long time without success. Rest in Peace, James.

This is an amazing tribute to an equally amazing man!!

My mother Brenda grew up in Martintown, and we both had the pleasure of spending hours talking with Jimmy when he played at the Downtowner in Owen Sound as part of The Boarding House.

Such an talented and kind individual - he will be sadly missed!, but in comfort to those left behind, he is leading the choir of angels up above and is looking over all of us!

Rest in peace - we hold you in our hearts forever

Nancy, and the rest of the Gougeon/Segouin clan

Where do i start?James Leroy....a very gifted singer song writer.Once you hear that voice,you're hooked.
Finding this site brought fond memories as i listend to his music again.Reading his bio.....and insights and reflections from those who were part of his all too short life was most enlightening.

I remember a Toronto DJ,Mike Cooper of CFTR(then)recalling his memories of James after playing "Touch of Magic".
In fact,that's the first time i knew that he had died.I was shocked and deeply saddened.That voice will now be forever silent.The talent,the man.
Rest in Peace,James.Your voice is now amongst HIS angels.

Great site, thank you so much. Like many people who signed this book, I feel that Canadian music in the 70s and early 80s was some of the best ever. James Leroy's songs were no exception. Hearing "You Look Good in Denim" and "Touch of Magic" brings me back to my childhood with fond memories. I tried looking him up on Wikipedia but was surprised to see he doesn't have page. If anyone reading this is so enclined to do one, it would only help spread the great memories of his wonderful music.
