Tribute Fund for Dr. Leo Richard Haber

Tribute Fund for Dr. Leo Richard Haber

Dr. Leo Richard Haber was a skilled and much loved Paediatrician at the Montreal Children's Hospital, the father of six children (grandfather of nine), brother to nine siblings and beloved husband to Patricia Haber. He lived a life of passionate service, both to the thousands of patients he treated over his 40+ year career, and the hundreds of babies he baptized through his work as a Deacon with St. Monica's Parish. Through his work he touched the lives of thousands of people and wherever he went he actively joined and helped build community. On September 29, 2019 he would have been celebrating his 77th birthday surrounded by family gathered around a dinner table and enjoying his meal with gusto. His sudden and unexpected passing on February 7, 2019 was a shock to many, and still leaves his family, friends and patients bereft with a deep sorrow that can't really be eased but for the passage of time. In his honour and with hopes that funds raised will continue to do the work of his life - bringing sick children back to health and increasing the love and joy in the world, we have a set up this fundraising tribute page. Please give generously to the best of your ability. Our father never retired, never stopped working and gave his heart and soul to his work. We hope that his legacy will live on to continue what he did with dedication and passion every day of his life.
