In the spring of 1959, as a newly-graduated mining engineer I took the overnight train from Kingston to Sudbury to begin my new job at INCO. Arriving at 7:30 in the morning and standing on the station platform gaining my thoughts, Padre Laverty walked up and asked if I had a ride into town. He had been on the same train, and despite never having met during my years at Queen's, he recognized me. Such a great way to be introduced to a new chapter in life. (On the way to town he stopped at the local hospital to make an 8 a.m. visit with a patient.) Padre will surely rest in peace.
