James Julian Valmiki Sammy
October 30, 1970 - March 17, 2021
Julian Sammy, son, nephew, uncle, brother, brother-in-law, father, husband and friend passed away on the night of March 17th at the age of 50. Julian was also a debater, critical thinker, scientist, DnD Master, creator of music and word, and traveller.
He is survived by his wife Kathleen Barret, daughter Livé and her mothers, Anita Wiklem and Holly Liddell, mother Kathy (Inglis) Sammy, sister Joy Sammy, brother in law Hugo Bohórquez, and nephew Mateo.
Predeceased by his father Howard Sammy (2010), uncles Rex (Denise) Inglis (2000) and Jack (Irene) (2018) Inglis, and Donald (Chris) Sammy (2020).
He had a 6 year ‘relationship’ with cancer. I won’t call it a battle because he did not approach it that way. He was well aware of all the potential outcomes of his situation and knew that he could leave us quickly and did not have much time left.
His passing was at home, was quick and his incredible life partner Kathleen was by his side. He will be missed and remembered by the Barret, Beaulieu, Svenning, Inglis, Sammy and Sabzali families in the USA, Canada, Norway and Trinidad.
He asked all of you to ‘do good deeds’ and I will emphasize that here. We each have the power to make someone else’s day better be it a stranger or someone close to us. Julian can still make the lives of others better through us...so let’s do that.
There will be more news to come on services arrangements and donations can be made to The Sunnybrook Foundation or the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care
