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 great colleague and friend over the years since. His background in Finance and Human Resources contributed to his effectiveness in organizational consulting on various client projects. His intellectual curiosity, combined with his thoughtfulness and humour endeared him to many. On occasion my kids and I would run into him in the neighbourhood while he pushed a stroller, being the ever-so-proud grandfather that he was. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather.
He will be forever remembered for his theoretical interests along with his amazing wit and love of people. Above all, for us at Excel Group, he will be  remembered as a dear friend with whom we were blessed to work.

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

"One life soon will be passed. Only what's done in love will last."
