Richard Morin Obituary, Death – I must let you know of the demise of our colleague Dr. Richard Morin, who served in the Department of Anesthesiology, and it is with a great deal of regret that I do so. Yesterday evening, Dr. Morin, who had reached the age of 53, passed away. As a direct result of this terrible accident, he left behind an enormous void in the lives of his family, his friends, his community, and our hospitals. In 2007, Dr. Morin successfully completed all of the requirements necessary to earn his degree from the University of Ottawa. In 2019, following a lengthy career as a military physician that culminated in his retirement that year, he started working for Quinte Health. During the course of his career in the military, he had served in a variety of capacities in the Middle East on multiple occasions.
He was a member of our team who was known for having high standards of integrity and garnering a great deal of respect. He maintained his composure and was always willing to lend a helping hand in any circumstance when one was required. We are inconsolably heartbroken that Dr. Morin’s vibrant life has been cut short to such an extreme degree, as he was interested in continuing to improve his practice and learning new techniques. We are incredibly heartbroken that these opportunities, as well as his vibrant life, have been cut short.
Our deepest condolences go out to his wife, Carrie, and their daughter, as well as to all of his other loved ones, colleagues, and coworkers who were impacted by his passing and who are grieving his loss. The flags that fly atop each of our four hospitals have been lowered to the half-staff position as a gesture of respect and honor for Dr. Morin.
