Dick passed away peacefully in his sleep on March 30, 2013 at the age of 87. Beloved husband of nearly 62 years of Colleen Leblanc Moralejo. He will be sadly missed by his children Anne, Carol, Donna, Lois (Steve) Pohlod, Susan (Fred) Fraser, Michael (Josee Patton), and Lisa, as well as grandchildren Alexander, Christopher, Andrew, Michael, Gregory, Stefanie, Morgan, Nicholas and Caroline (Carli). He will also be greatly missed by his sister, Marina (the late Dr. Mark) Boss and his nieces and nephews, Carmen, Ken and Odette, as well as his sister-in-law, Dolores (the late Norman) Leblanc, and his nieces and nephews Kim, Cheryl, Tracy, and Caroline. Dick was born in Trinidad, West Indies, and is predeceased by his parents, Venancio and Carmen Moralejo, and his youngest sister, Graciela. He came to Montreal to study medicine at McGill University, graduating in 1949, and taking up surgical residency training in Montreal and Toronto hospitals. He spent most of his professional life at St. Mary's Hospital as a General Surgeon and was Chief of Surgery and Director of Professional Services at St. Mary's for more than 10 years.
