Dear Parents/Guardians and Friends of Courcelette,

Mr. McNaughton’s father shared the obituary notice for Rob.  It will appear in the Star’s online version and in next Wednesday’s edition, as well as in the Globe on Saturday and Monday.

In lieu of flowers, Mr. McNaughton asked us to provide the name of an organization that  supports literacy. The Empower Reading Program, through Sickkids, was recommended to the family. This wonderful program supports children with reading disabilities. We are confident that Rob, who had a passion for helping children read, would approve of this program recommendation.
