He developed acute leukemia at the age of 21 and underwent a bone marrow transplant. He became well enough for a time to rejoin his family, friends and fellow musicians and to appear again with the University of Ottawa Orchestra in 2006.
However, his illness returned and despite a heroic struggle he died of leukemia in March 2006.
