In praise of the Padre

Fond memories of the Padre from Tom Fahidy, Sc'59, MSc'61, Waterloo, ON

It was with great sadness that I heard of Padre Laverty’s February 20 death. He made a deep and lasting impression on me with his straightforwardness, integrity, helpfulness, empathy, and dedication to Queen’s.

His wisdom, advice, encouragement, friendliness, and understanding are now cherished parts of the pleasant memories of Queen’s, and the few homecomings I could attend over the years. My wife Sharee and I wish to extend our heartfelt condolences to the Padre’s family.
