How sad it is to hear of Antoine's passing. We worked together at Fisheries and Oceans some 30 years back now. Even though that's a long time ago, i can still picture him in my office, gesticulating has he explained the intricacies of some intellectual property issue. Rest in peace, Antoine.

My sincere condolences to the family. I worked with Antoine in the Science Sector at Fisheries and Oceans. I still remember the smell of his coffee.

I am so very sorry to hear this news. Antoine and I worked together in the Oceans Directorate at DFO. He introduced me to the intricacies of patents and licensing and wonderful baklava he would bring to the office for special occasions. I know the whole family will have wonderful memories and I hope they sustain you at this difficult time!

Our sincere condolences to the family. We are saddened to hear of Tony’s passing, though he is now pain free and at peace. Tony worked for some time with Dr. Farid Hindieh (pre-deceased) and he, his parents and siblings were friends of our family, spanning 4 countries and multiple generations. With our sympathies, the Hindieh family.
