(Dr.) Victor Michael Whitehead

1933 - 2016

Whitehead, (Dr.) Victor Michael B.A., M.A., M.D.C.M., C.S.P.Q., F.R.C.P.C (born April 10, 1934), was called to Glory on September 18, 2016 after a breathtakingly, achingly valiant and dignified battle with dementia. He died at home, surround by all the love held given to others in his 82 years. Predeceased by his parents, George Victor and Doris (Jack), his brother Edward and sister Carol (Lloyd-Jones), and his first wife, Sheilagh (Ryan). Michael leaves behind his wife Louise (Penny), his sons, Michael, Richard (Kathy) and Victor, two grandchildren and countless friends. A Professor Emeritus at McGill University, former head of hematology at the Montreal Children's Hospital, and senior investigator into childhood cancer for the International Pediatric Oncology Group, Michael was also the inspiration for the fictional Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, of the Sûreté du Québec. A brilliant man, in every way, Michael contributed significantly to treatments for childhood leukemia. He?ll be remembered for his kindness, his courage, his twinkling blue eyes, his bowties. And the great love he felt and gave. Special thank you to Dr. Dominique Giannangelo, to Cheryl and Isabelle at the CLSC, and to his amazing caregivers who have become part of the family over the years; Kim, Rose, Daniel, Wendy and Mary. Close friends are welcome to join us in celebration of Michael's life at Grace Anglican Church in Sutton, Quebec, at 3pm on Saturday, October 1st. In his memory, please make a donation to the cause of your choice. ?It's not so much that his heart stopped, but that he finally gave it all away.?  Surprised by Joy.
