Montréal; Université de Montréal, 1967; general surgery. Died Aug. 21, 2021, aged 77. Survived by his wife, Andrée Lippé, 5 children, 2 stepchildren, and his grandchildren. “His raison d’être and main passion have undoubtedly been to improve the quality of care for patients. This constant concern led him to set up functional care systems and to work relentlessly, mainly in continuing medical education, [to help] maintain the skills of intervention teams. He worked to train an entire generation of surgeons and intensivists. Early in his career he trained and then worked at Cook County Hospital in Chicago for a decade. He moved back to Québec after several more years of international work, and worked at the Université de Sherbrooke. Later, in New Brunswick, he set up a provincial trauma system before ending his career at the CIUSSS Center-Sud in Montréal, where he served as deputy medical director.”
