Dennis Arpin February 22,1961 - February 12, 2013 The Apple of His eye is gone. Following a courageous two month battle with an aggressive lung cancer,Dennis passed away on February 12, ten days before his 52nd birthday. He leaves his parents Pierre and Marguerite (Tréau de Coeli) and his sister Adèle (Donald Bray) who was by his side till his last breath. Thanks to his dear friends Tina Sendon and Maranda Lam, who gave him good moments and the staff at Bruyère Palliative Care, who gave him more than their kind attention and made him as comfortable as possible. Dennis was a loving person, always enthusiastic and helpful. He was deeply spiritual and strong in the faith that God would relieve him in this painful time. He was passionate about cycling, driving and photography (www.Flickr.com). He should have lived longer. He will never be forgotten and will stay in our hearts forever. Donations to the Bruyère Foundation would be appreciated. A private celebration of Dennis' life, just as he would like it, will take place in the summer, his favorite season.
