Faj Ramelan - Update Print E-mail

It is with deep sadness that I inform you of the passing of a former staff member, Faj Ramelan.  Faj was with the department for decades and was our Electronics Specialist working mainly for the Mass Spec Facility but also for the undergraduate labs and Drs. Werstiuk and Terlouw.  Faj built probes and chambers for the mass spectrometers and specialized instrumentation for researchers but he was also a professional photographer and took stunning photos.  Faj battled kidney disease and after a transplant, retired early to enjoy his family and hobbies.  Unfortunately, the disease took its toll and after fighting complications he passed away Mar. 23.


A small celebration of his incredible life will be taking place on Wednesday, March 29th at 5 p.m. at Tansley Woods Community Centre, Burlington. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Carpenter Hospice are preferred.
