    Lisa, Neil and family ~
    I can’t begin to tell you how sorry I am for your loss; it will be felt deeply and for a long time. I considered Raza a very dear friend and colleague. Back to the days as articling students, and later, just as friends, music and movie buddies. He was kind and generous to a fault. And if one could sum it up, a good man. In a time when that cannot be said of many, Raza set the bar high. I will miss him very much. Love to you all.

  20. I am so sorry to hear of Raza’s passing. I was his athletic therapist who treated him so he could get back to his love of golf. During our hour of me treating him, we talked about life- what his passions were, where he wanted to be in the future, and how much he was proud of his kids. We always enjoyed our talks and I will miss his smiling face.

    I am shocked to hear of Raza’s death as I am much older. He was my team leader at the CRA in the 80’s. He gave me the best advice for the job. “wear slacks, as you are older it will confuse them.” It was excellent advice for a woman of my generation and I immediately followed it. To his family, my sincere thoughts and regret at this time.
