The loss of a great ex-cadet; Serge Arpin
The very sudden loss of Serge Arpin has both shocked and saddened me greatly. The shock was magnified by the fact that as recently as November we were engaged in several wonderful discussions but in December he was hospitalized several times leading to the discovery of cancer. Over the past four years, I have had the pleasure of getting to know Serge as he was one of the backbone translators for Veritas magazine for the past decade. I very much enjoyed our conversations and I learned more about the man who was an ex-cadet par excellence. It should also be noted that Serge was also the webmaster for the Class of 66 as well as the Quebec Branch.
Always so positive and enthusiastic, he willingly and diligently produced incredible results in a uniformly professional manner. He would painstakingly research every aspect of a translation taking special care to ensure that the military lexicon was accurately captured which is not an easy task given its continual evolution. Furthermore, he would offer comments and recommendations on the original text which were invariably on the mark.
Serge was always upbeat and a delight to converse with. He truly epitomized the very best of ex-cadet ideals and virtues and his contributions to his class, the Quebec Branch, and the Club cannot be underestimated. He was a core member of each of this interrelated organizations and he took great pride in making each of them better. He will be sorely missed by so many class mates and ex-cadets.
In the name of all ex-cadets from Canada’s military colleges, we extend or deepest sympathy and most sincere condolences to his wife Claudette, his two daughters, Geneviève and Danielle, and his four grandchildren. TDV/VDV!
