SUTHERLAND, HECTOR EASDALE
1927 - 2012
Hector passed away at home on March 28 in Brockville, Ont. in his 85th year. Born in Montreal, and educated at Lower Canada College, he spent his first 50 years here, moved to Oakville for 22 years and then to Brockville in 2001. He was the very proud father of Linda, Colin (Vanessa), Anne, Brian and Jane (Shawn) and the bemused and delighted grandfather of Devon and Keith Sutherland and Lindsey and Jenna Carter. Predeceased by his wife and best friend Nancy McGill. He is survived by his sister Betty Panet-Raymond and his sister-in-law Isabel Cameron. The family would like to thank his neighbours in Country Club Place for their kindness and friendship to Hector after our mother died.
Hector was an athlete of the highest order and excelled at many sports, including golf and tennis. He was two time Canadian National Downhill Champion (1947 & 1951) and proudly represented Canada as a member of the Olympic ski team in 1948. Skiing played a large part in his life and his happiest moments were spent on the hills. A private cremation has taken place and a celebration of both Hector and Nancy's lives will be held in Montreal at the Mount Royal Funeral Complex, 1297 de la Foret, Outremont, Friday, June 8 at noon
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a foundation in Nancy Sutherland's name for research into ovarian cancer c/o Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Queen's University, Kingston, ON, K7L 3N6. Ski Heil.
