The entire University of Prince Edward Island community was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the death on July 2 of Robert “Rocky” Paquet, a long-time service worker with UPEI’s Facilities Management department who always had a smile and glint in his eye. Although always hopeful, in recent weeks, he had become adversely affected by a heart condition and was in Halifax seeking treatment at the time of his death. Rocky would have turned 61 years old later this month.
