"AWA" 2007 Obituary


AWAD o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-05-29 published
AWAD, George Anis, (F.R.C.P.C)
George AWAD passed away in peace on May 25, 2007 after a courageous battle with heart failure. A devoted husband, father, physician, and friend, George leaves behind a world he lived to help. He is survived by his wife Macy and children Melia and Tarek, who hold him in love and remembrance in their hearts and minds. Born in Acre, Palestine, George completed his degree in Medicine at the American University of Beirut, and continued with his Psychiatry and Child Psychiatry training at the University of Rochester and the University of Michigan respectively. Following his relocation to Toronto, George completed his training in Psychoanalysis at the Toronto Institute of Psychoanalysis. He became a Staff Psychiatrist at the Family Court Clinic, Clark Institute of Psychiatry, where he later served as Director. George also became a Staff Psychiatrist with the Infant Psychiatry Program at the Hospital for Sick Children. While maintaining his private practice in Psychoanalysis and Forensic Child Psychiatry he remained a devoted academician and scholar who, throughout his distinguished career, held both academic and clinical positions as Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto, and as a Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at the Canadian Institute of Psychoanalysis in Toronto. Doctor AWAD was instrumental in promoting the education of teachers and others working with underprivileged children in various Non-governmental Organizations in Lebanon, and was a member of several groups who worked and lectured for resolution and peace between Palestinians and Israelis. He was a constant advocate for peace, tolerance, and understanding. During the last years and until the last days of his life, George remained devoted to his private Psychoanalytic practice. George AWAD was dedicated to his medical career, but he was also a scholar, an activist, and a leader. He was a man who lived to help others, who gave to his family all of his self, and will be remembered for his kind, compassionate, courageous soul. However, nothing defined him more clearly than his love for his family. Doctor George AWAD will be remembered on Wednesday May 30, 2007 at 1: 00 p.m. at Humphrey's Funeral Home, 1403 Bayview Avenue, Toronto. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the George Awad Memorial Scholarship Fund, established to send a student to the American University of Beirut. An account will be opened at the Toronto Dominion Bank of Canada.
