In memory of Jacques Paris (1935-2022)

 

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Jacques Paris at the age of 86, in Montreal on May 27, 2022, after a courageous battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife Régine Guérin, his sister Madeleine (known as Cocotte), his children Michelle, Roland (Katie) and Roby (Connie), and his grandchildren Julia, Simon, Jacqueline, Lucy, Charly and Leo.

Born in Bayonne, France, on August 21, 1935, he immigrated to Canada in the 1960s, settling first in Toronto and then in Montreal where he pursued a career as an associate professor at the Faculty of Planning at the University of Montreal, then full professor at the Institute of Urban Planning at the University of Montreal. As a professor, he was much appreciated by his students for his open-door policy which helped them advance in their studies. In retirement, he devoted himself to his passion for genealogy and wrote articles published in certain journals specializing in the subject. He will be remembered for his warmth, keen intelligence, and wonderfully quirky sense of humour.

The family will receive condolences on Wednesday, June 1, 2022, from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., at Kane Fetterly Funeral Home, 5301, Decarie blvd. (corner Isabella), Montreal, QC, H3W 3C4, 514-481-5301. Masks are at ones' discretion but mandatory for those who are unvaccinated.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.
