On behalf of all of us at St. Lawrence College in Kingston who knew Doc, I would like to send heartfelt condolences to his son, siblings, and other family members. He talked about you and his homeland all the time. He was an amazing man, and I know will be missed greatly. Cancer is a horrible disease, which affects all of us one way or another. Doc met the challenges he faced with humour and courage. We should all aspire to follow his lead. Rest in Peace, my friend. Doc told me he always made the sign of the cross before he went to sleep because his mother taught him to do this. Let's all do it for him tonight.
