Obituary

Dubuque, Jr., Theodore J. MD 1927 - 2018 It is with great sadness that The CRUDEM Foundation reports the passing of our beloved founder, Dr. Theodore Ted Dubuque, Jr. on June 30, in St. Louis. When Dr. Dubuque, a highlyregarded St. Louis surgeon, recovered from a near-fatal illness in the early eighties, he looked for a way to express my gratitude for the gift of life. Ted's extraordinary vision and compassion led to his arrival in Milot, Haiti in 1985, the beginning of The CRUDEM Foundation, and the plan for success for H pital Sacré Coeur. Bowled over by the intensive poverty and impressed by the dignity, resourcefulness and welcoming, good spirit of the Haitian people, Ted made it his life's calling to turn a 6-bed Milot clinic into a quality medical facility. Today, H pital Sacré Coeur stands as one of Haiti's premier private hospitals and most notable success stories. The 200 bed, tertiary care hospital services a community of over 250,000 adults and children with critically needed quality healthcare and is a major employer and economic driver for the region. The abundant, transformative, life-saving fruits of one St. Louisan's vision and determination are evident everywhere one looks in northern Haiti. Ted would be the first to say that he alone was not responsible for all the accomplishments; God and an everincreasing community of supporters paved the way and continue to sustain the hospital. But we all know that Ted's vision, determination and devout faith helped shape and inform this mission for over 30 years. Remarkable. Extraordinary. Inspiring. Visionary. Kind and humble beyond measure. All words that aptly describe Ted. His own faith tradition perhaps describes him best: Ted truly lived up to the Jesuit ideal of being a man for others. We will miss him. The CRUDEM Foundation. P. O. Box 804, Ludlow, MA 01056 / www.crudem.org
