Brent Hussey - 1969 Grad
Hussey, Brent K. - OBITUARY BRENT K. HUSSEY Age fifty-eight, passed away after a short illness at the Royal Victoria Hospital on January 6, 2010.
Concordians are saddened to hear of the passing of Brent K. Hussey on Jan. 6.
A lawyer by trade, Hussey recognized the value of giving back to the community: In 2007, he regularly put time aside to act as Supervising Attorney at the Legal Information Clinic offered through Advocacy and Support Services. The clinic provided free legal information to Concordians from law students at McGill, Hussey’s alma mater, until the clinic’s closure in 2009. Hussey also coached soccer and was involved in local politics and the scouting movement in the West Island.
He leaves behind his wife, Eileen, and his three children, Kevin, Kathleen and Graham. He will be dearly missed by extended family and fondly remembered by friends and associates. A funeral was held on Jan. 11 at the Church of the Resurrection in Pointe Claire.
Brent and I were a couple of years apart at RHS. We became friends when we were at the McGill University Faculty of Management together.
Brent had a sense of humour that I thoroughly enjoyed. I remember a joke about the "Special" that he told and it makes me smile to this day. Brent also had a great deal of integrity which we all respected. He was truly a nice guy.
When I left Montreal to take a job in Winnipeg, he and Eileen and a few friends got together with me for a good bye party. Brent gave me a stuffed toy as a going away present. Believe it or not that was 37 years ago and I still have that toy. Just can't part with it.
We lost touch over the years as I moved around to further my career while he stayed in Montreal to become a successful lawyer and very involved in Scouting. He was actually my nephew's scout leader for a while.
One of my great regrets is that during the 2002 RHS reunion I saw Brent in the corridor by the gym and as we waved at each other in passing, we said something to the effect that we would catch each other later in the evening. We never did and that was the last time I saw him. I regret that. It would have been nice to speak to him.
With Brent's passing, RHS has lost a great ambassador. He was one of the good guys.
My condolences to Eileen and Brent's family and friends.
