It is with deep sadness that the Ottawa Chapter and Tourette Canada announce the passing of Richard Levesque, one of our dedicated and hard-working volunteers. Despite Richard’s illness, he continued to volunteer his time and make a difference in the lives of those around him. On behalf of Tourette Canada, we would like to extend our condolences to Richard’s family and his wife and daughter, Chloe. He will be sadly missed by all.
