It is with sadness and shock that we learned of Sylvain Duguay’s passing this past Sunday, February 5th. Sylvain was an amazing teacher, friend and colleague who taught several different and varied courses here at John Abbott College. He had the ability to make his 8:30am classes on Fridays really interesting for every student because of his passion for teaching as well as the topics he taught. He was very likeable and friendly, and those who knew him can definitely remember seeing him in the hallways where he would recognize them even after a few years, and say “hi” with a smile. All of us on the Bandersnatch team offer our most sincere condolences to the family and close friends of Sylvain Duguay. He will forever be remembered by all who knew him.
