DEPOCAS, Dr. Florent Louis Joseph 1923-2004 Suddenly, of cardiac arrest, at his home in Finland, on July 6th, 2004. Our dear companion, father, grandfather and friend will be sadly missed. Florent leaves behind to grieve his wife, Killi Kauppinen and her family, as well as his family in Canada: his daughters Liliane Mabson and Suzanne Depocas, his grandchildren, Elena and Madeleine Bird and Elizabeth and John Rembelos, his former wife Elise Depocas as well as several relatives and friends. A native of Montreal, Florent earned a PHD in bio-chemistry from l'Universite de Montreal in 1951. In 1952 he married Elise Papenhuyzen and moved to Ottawa where he raised his family while leading a distinguished career as a research officer at the National Research Council, contributing significantly in the area of cold adaptation. Of this period many will remember Florent's love of music, culture and travel, of the outdoors, of spirited conversation and of simple pleasures. After an early retirement in 1986, Florent remarried in 1992. Then, in 2000 he made a definitive move to Finland to follow his wife, Killi. There he enjoyed happy, peaceful years, full of his beloved music and of pleasant activities. A memorial service and reception will be held at the First Unitarian Church, 30 Cleary Ave., the 17th of July, at 2 pm. Ta droiture, ta rigeur, ton sourire et ton amour seront pour nous tous toujours une grande source d'inspiration. The Ottawa Citizen
