:: André Robert Laplante

It is with great sadness that we note the sudden passing of André Laplante of the Department of Mining, Metals and Materials Engineering whilst serving the McGill cross-country ski team on Sunday.

André joined the Department in 1980 coming from the University of Toronto and previously Ecole Polytechnique. An outstanding and dedicated teacher and favorite with the students, he taught the faculty service course, Engineering Economy, as well as several other courses within his specialty, Mineral Processing. His research interests were in gold recovery. He was an extremely honest and fair individual with high moral standards and values, who conveyed a wonderfully positive outlook on life.

Funeral arrangements will be announced shortly. He is a great loss to the Department and Faculty and our thoughts are with his family, Carol-Sue and their two children, Jérémi and Emilie, at this extremely sad time.
