It is with a sad heart that I share with you
that our friend and colleague, Steve Cornforth, passed away peacefully
while surrounded by his
loving family on Friday October 17th.
I first met Steve nine years ago and he has been a

organizational consulting on various client projects. His intellectual
curiosity, combined with his thoughtfulness and humour endeared him to

while he pushed a stroller, being the ever-so-proud grandfather that he
was. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather.

We offer our condolences and prayers to his wife, Donna and children,
Jocelyn, Ward and Shelley and their families.
