In Memoriam: Bert Carron, School of Kinesiology

Carron headshotThe Faculty of Health Sciences lost a dear friend and colleague on June 2, 2014 with the passing of Bert Carron. A professor in the School of Kinesiology, he spent more than 40 years at Western and his vast accomplishments were celebrated at an event prior to his retirement on December 31, 2012.

Bert was an internationally respected scholar in the field of sport psychology. He loved his career, Western, and most of all his graduate students, many of whom have assumed leadership roles in the academy upon graduation.

Please keep his wife, Marcela, his children, and his grandchildren in your thoughts during this most difficult time.

Visitation will be held at Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North, London, on Friday, June 6, 2014 from 2:00-4:00 and 6:00-8:00 p.m. In addition, please join the family for a celebration of his life on Saturday June 7, 2014, between 2:00-5:00 p.m. at the Great Hall, Somerville House, Western University.
