It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Skip on November 17th, 2019. He was surrounded by the love of his family and friends, and was deeply appreciative and grateful of the care he received by his team at Mount Sinai Hospital. When given the shocking news in September, Skip chose to forego treatment and focus on the time remaining, and we have been awed by his bravery, joy, and generosity of spirit that he extended to us all.
Woven throughout his early years and into his university and work life, there have been three constant passions for Skip: music, skiing, and his fish aquariums. The diverse groups of people that knew Skip through the above will miss him greatly and his memory will be held true as they carry on.
Skip will be sorely and deeply missed by his loving mother Helen Booth, his brother Doug & sister-in-law Martha, his sister Wendy Fee & brother-in-law James, and his father Ernest and his wife Lorna. Skip felt lucky to be an uncle to Trina, Aria, Arthur, Reni, Zoe , Dillon and grand-uncle to Adi, Viva, and Hart. We will all cherish the laughter and togetherness we shared this past Thanksgiving and Skip will be kept close in our hearts.
A Celebration of Life will be held in honour of Skip July 28, 2020.
