"YVE" 2007 Obituary


YVES o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-07-07 published
HARTLEY, Strachan, B.Sc., M.Sc., M.D.
After a courageous 21 months, Strachan lost his battle against Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma July 5th, 2007 at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal. Prior to his illness, he experienced short but unfettered joy as an M.D. pursuing his orthopedic surgery residency at McGill. Strachan is survived by his devoted wife Doctor Chloe ROUMAIN, proud parents Mary Ann and Michael, and loving siblings Aimee-Noel, Wyatt and Blythe. Sharing their daughter's loss are parents-in-law Pierre YVES and Françoise ROUMAIN of Haiti and sister Stephanie READ and family in Miami. While his Uncle Peter HARTLEY, Aunt Catherine LOUVET and cousins Camille and Lauren feel a particularly strong loss as they acted as his surrogate family during his 7.5 years in Montreal, their grief is shared equally with his Uncles and Aunts Ian and Mary-Louise and Susan HARTLEY, Glenn and Margaret MUNRO, Jim MUNRO and Margaret DRAGU and cousins Megan, Brian, Scott, Kim, Josh and Aretha. He was predeceased by his grandparents Herb and Simone HARTLEY and Ralph and Isabelle MUNRO of Toronto. During his 30 years, Strachan left a powerful legacy of Friendship, sport and scholarship in Edmonton, Vancouver and Montreal. His captaincy of the 1997 Vanier Cup Champion University of British Columbia Thunderbirds football team and subsequently of the McGill Redmen football team are testament to his leadership and commitment to others. Earning All-Star status in both leagues, 5-time Academic All-Canadian Honours, the Russ Jackson Award as the top community, academic and athletic achiever in the Province of Quebec and twice bestowed with the prestigious Canadian Interuniversity Sports Award as one of the Top 8 most outstanding academic, leadership and athletic performers in Canadian sports are tributes of his tremendous work ethic and strength of character. His successful completion of medical school while battling cancer speaks to the bravery and determination of this truly remarkable man who wanted to make a difference in this world. But most of all, Strachan will be remembered for his warm sense of humor, compassion and integrity. All who knew him cannot wonder what might have been. Why, when he had so much to give, was he taken from us? Sleep in peace wonderful Prince. We will carry you always in our hearts. The family wishes to acknowledge all the amazing Friends and community members who supported Strachan during his life and illness. Your overwhelming caring and compassion touched him and the family deeply and helped soothe his burden. In lieu of flowers, the Hartleys have requested that Friends honour Strachan's memory through the Strachan Hartley Legacy Foundation. The Legacy Foundation is designed to further Strachan's life goal of making a difference in the world. All donations will receive a tax deductible receipt. Please make cheques payable to the Tides Foundation c/o Strachan Hartley Legacy Foundation 468 Arbutus Ave. Duncan, British Columbia V9L 5X6
