Malcolm Graeme Decarie, 89, passed away on November 27, 2022 in Kingston, Ontario. He was a resident of Montreal, Quebec. It is with profound regret that we share the news of his passing. Graeme Stanley Decarie was born on August 27, 1933 in Montreal to Malcolm Stanley and Jessie Decarie. He received his education in Canadian history from Sir George Williams University, Acadia University, and Queen’s University. After teaching for a short time at UPEI, he moved back to Montreal and spent the majority of his career at Concordia University, where he was both an extremely well-liked professor and the chair of the history department.

He was a frequent commentator for the CBC and CJAD, as well as a consultant and narrator for the National Film Board of Canada. He was a prolific speaker in the Montreal community. In addition, he had articles published in Reader’s Digest, The Montreal Gazette, and other publications. Graeme was a member of several organizations, including the New Democratic Party, Alliance Quebec, the 78th Fraser Highlanders Regiment, and the Sherlock Holmes society The Bimetallic Question. He enjoyed going on trips, researching the history of his family, and sailing.

Graeme had a deep and abiding love for his children Catherine, Christina, Alexander, Nicholas, and Margaret, and he was a devoted and ecstatic grandfather to Evi, Mei Mei, Oona, and Leo. In addition to being devoted to his sister, Winnifred Stewart, he was also devoted to his nephews and niece, Ian, Andy, Doug, Owen, and Donna.
