Bill Barakett a pratiqué la médecine dans les Cantons-de-l’Est pendant 47 ans. Fraîchement diplômé de l’Université McGill, il commence sa carrière à l’Hôpital Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins (BMP), à Cowansville, en 1972. En plus de voir des patients, il participe à la gestion de l’hôpital et agit à titre de chef du service médical de l’Hôpital BMP pendant 25 ans et à titre de vice-président et président de sa Fondation durant de nombreuses années. Passionné de médecine, Dr Barakett participe aussi à d’innombrables campagnes de financement au bénéfice de l’hôpital et de la clinique qu’il a contribué à fonder à Knowlton. Il s’intéresse particulièrement aux personnes souffrant de dépendances, principalement à l’alcool d’abord, puis plus récemment aux opioïdes. Il s’intéresse aussi vivement au traitement et à la gestion de la douleur, il travaille au sein de la Fondation Butters qui vise à améliorer la prestation des services aux personnes ayant une déficience intellectuelle et à leur famille et agit à titre de médecin conseil à la Maison Dunham, un centre de traitement à West Brome.

Dr Barakett est investi de l’Ordre du Canada en 2002. Sur l’hommage qui lui est rendu, on peut y lire : « William Barakett est plus qu’un médecin de famille. (...) Ancien dirigeant de nombreuses organisations professionnelles, il représente un exemple d’engagement et de sollicitude pour la jeune génération de médecins généralistes. »

Dr Barakett laisse dans le deuil son épouse Janie, ses enfants Elise et David, sa petite-fille Addison et sa sœur Joyce. Il a été précédé dans la mort par son frère Lawrence et sa sœur Nita. La famille vous accueillera au

Bill Barakett practiced medicine in the Eastern Townships for 47 years. As a young graduate of McGill University, he started at the Brome Missisquoi Perkins Hospital (BMP) in Cowansville in 1972. He not only saw patients but also became involved in running the hospital and was Chief of Medicine of the BMP for 25 years as well as President of its Foundation. Dr. Barakett was passionate about medicine and was a tireless fundraiser for the hospital and the clinic he helped start in Knowlton. He took a special interest in people with addictions, at first mostly alcoholism but of late opioids. He was keenly interested in pain management. He worked at the Butters Foundation, for people with intellectual disabilities, and was medical advisor to Dunham House, a treatment centre in West Brome.

Dr. Barakett was named a Member of the Order of Canada in 2002. The citation said in part: "William Barakett is known as a family doctor who goes beyond the call of duty.... A former leader in numerous professional organizations, he is a model of dedication and caring for young general practitioners."

Dr. Barakett is survived by his wife Janie, his children, Elise and David, his granddaughter, Addison, and his sister, Joyce. He was predeceased by his brother Lawrence and his sister Nita. There will be a visitation at

Livre d'or

Janie, Elise, and David and families We are crushed by this news of Bill's passing, and we are thinking of you, and sending our hugs and prayers. It is not fair, of course, to you or to the community, but we will try to laugh a bit and remember his smile, his dedication to others, to his preferred charities such as the Butters Foundation, his love, and knowledge of Scotch, and golf, your Nova Scotia retreat, and his love of people and his community. We can only remember fondly any interaction we've had with him, and Debbie of course had many years of working with him at the BMP. Being in attendance in the O.R. when he birthed our son Kieran is a highlight of our lives. We will deeply miss sitting with him and exchanging views. "Dr. Bill" is a pillar of the community. Please dwell on the light he brought to the world! Love Bill and Debbie Duke

As long time patients of Doctor Barakett we were saddened and shocked his passing. Bill recently mentioned to me that I was one of his original patients when he first arrived in Cowansville back in the early 1970’s. Our deepest sympathy goes out to the Barakett family.

Words cannot express the sadness that is felt by me, my family and all that knew and loved Dr. Bill. Not only was he my Dr, after Dr. Pincott retired, but I worked along side of him in the OBS department for many years at BMP .I remember when he first came to the hospital as a young intern, working along side Dr. Pincott. I felt safe with him as my Dr. My most heartfelt sympathies to his wife Janie, his son and daughter and grand daughter, and family and close friends.

JEFFERY TYCHIE

Bill and I met as undergraduates at McGill and found we just liked each other. Although we lost touch and went our separate ways, about thirty years ago, we crossed paths in Knowlton, completely by chance. Bill immediately called out my name in warm recognition. This week, when I heard he’d died, I was shocked to tears. Such is the mystery of friendship with such a person. This is a profound loss. My sincerest condolences to his family.

David Muhlstock
