Tri-County Vanguard - - OBITUARIES -

– The fam­ily of Doc­tor An­dré Crépeau, F.R.C.S. (C) is sorry to an­nounce his pass­ing away on Mon­day, Au­gust 13th. Son of Louis de Gon­zague and Marie Laure Crépeau (Brochu), he leaves be­hind his beloved wife of 60 years, Yolande (deCelles), his sons Françoys (Xuong) and Yves, as well as the sun­shine of his heart, his beloved grand­son Vin­cent. He also leaves his broth­ers and sis­ters Mau­rice (Suzanne), Jac­ques (Mary), Louise (Ken), and Robert (Suzanne), and in­laws Léan­dre (An­drée) and Pauline. His dear sis­ters Flore and Françoise pre­de­ceased him. Af­ter grad­u­at­ing in 1950 from Univer­sité Sainte Anne, in Nova Sco­tia, he re­ceived his doc­tor­ate in medicine in 1955 from the Univer­sité Laval. He con­tin­ued his stud­ies by do­ing a res­i­dency in gen­eral surgery at the Henry Ford Hospi­tal, in Detroit, Michi­gan, as well as a res­i­dency in tho­racic and car­dio­vas­cu­lar surgery at the Good Samar­i­tan and Olive View hos­pi­tals, in Los An­ge­les, Cal­i­for­nia. He then re­turned to Canada in 1963 to es­tab­lish him­self in Ot­tawa, where he prac­ticed in many hos­pi­tals in the area. But he worked more than half of his life at the Ot­tawa Gen­eral Hospi­tal, pur­su­ing his true pas­sion: surgery, all the while train­ing other sur­geons who are now prac­tic­ing in many coun­tries. His fam­ily wishes to thank doc­tors Atkins, Fitzgib­bons, and nurse Wendy Petrie. Spe­cial thanks to Doc­tor Louise Coulombe. We also owe a debt of grat­i­tude to the health care pro­fes­sion­als of the Ot­tawa Gen­eral Hospi­tal’s 6 South East wing.

Vis­i­ta­tions took place at the Racine, Robert & Gau­thier Funeral Home, at 180 Mon­tréal Road, in Ot­tawa, on Fri­day, Septem­ber 7th, from 2 to 4 PM, and from 7 to 9 PM. A Me­mo­rial Ser­vice took place at the Sainte Geneviève Church, at 825 Can­ter­bury Av­enue, Ot­tawa, on Satur­day, Septem­ber 8th, at 11 AM, fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion in the parish hall down­stairs. We would be grate­ful for do­na­tions to be made to the Myeloma Canada so­ci­ety, so that it may con­tinue to as­sist in re­search to fight this disease.
