It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tawfik Saad in Lachine on October 18, 2012 on the eve of his 93rd birthday.
A great athlete (Gold Medal, 1936 Olympic Games), husband and father, Tawfik Saad touched many lives with his dedication and love. His life’s story and his passion for excellence were an inspiration to many.
He is survived by his wife Hélène, his children Nadia and Karl, their spouses (Jim and Kathy), and his five grand-children (Kyra, Matthew, Logan, Ian and Chloé).
The family will receive condolences at J. J. Cardinal Funeral Home at 560 Lakeshore Drive in Dorval on October 27 from 2 pm to 4 pm, followed by a memorial service from 4 pm to 5 pm.
