It is with great sadness that I have to report the passing of William Sargant, known by all as “Sarge”. For many years Sarge had fought the good fight against illnesses related to his diabetes until they finally got the better of him on Wednesday, August the 18th, 2021.

He was the Executive Director of the Quetico Foundation from 1997 to 2005 and since then has remained as Trustee Emeritus. During his time as Executive Director, he achieved the highest level of fundraising ever recorded for the Foundation. Under his watch, the Foundation prospered and was highly effective.

He will be greatly missed by all his friends and all the friends of Quetico.

Chris Dobson, Chair, Quetico Foundation
