OCAD University mourns the loss of Edward A. Charpentier

 

Monday, March 28, 2016 - 4:00am

The OCAD University community was saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Eddie Charpentier on Sunday March 20 at Toronto East General Hospital. 

Eddie was a valuable member of the Facilities, Planning & Management office and had been an employee for almost 25 years. He quite literally held the keys to OCAD U and was involved in everything from campus access to wayfinding and mapping. For many years, his was the first voice callers heard when they dialed in to our automated switchboard system. He was also a staff donor to the university.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association.
