OBITUARY Alfred Salomon Guetta (Fred) Passed away June 27, 2007 at the Jewish General Hospital at the age of seventy-nine years. Fred is survived by his son Mike (Katya), daughter Natalie Mactaggart (Allan), grandchildren Callan, Kirsten and Brian, brother Robert (Sophie), sisters Renee Saul, Aviva Rothfeld (Haim), Arlette Nahaissy (Joe) and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his sister Jeannette Brosh and brother-in-law Cesar Saul. Fred was born in Cairo, Egypt. Some of his happiest childhood memories included going to the movies on Saturdays to see "western films", such as Laurel & Hardy and spending his summers visiting his many relatives in Alexandria. Fred left for Paris, France in 1948, at the age of twenty. He worked with IBM punch card accounting systems, and then sold Friden calculating machines. Fred moved on to work with the Marshall Plan, where he held several different staff coordination positions during the reconstruction of Europe. Fred moved to Canada in 1953 and became the data processing coordinator for Canadian International Paper. In 1962, he was offered the job of data processing coordinator at the American embassy in Paris. This was a turning point in his life, where at the age of thirty-five, he decided to leave the world of computers. Not technical by nature, he was happiest dealing with people. Fred moved into a sales position with OE (Office Equipment of Canada) and worked as a top performing salesman for fifteen years in the office furniture division. He then became divisional sales manager for ten years. Through his life Fred carried with him a deep sense of responsibility and a high level of integrity. Fred had a wonderful way of telling stories and was someone people naturally gravitated to. He will be missed by all who loved him and fondly remembered for his warm, kind and generous spirit. Thank you to the wonderful volunteers and staff in palliative care at the Jewish General. In lieu of flowers, donations made in his memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be greatly appreciated. Published in the Montreal Gazette on 6/30/2007
