Ambassador Tuncay Babalı's Message Of Condolences

Ottava Büyükelçiliği 22.12.2012


Dear members of the Turkish-Canadian community,


I have learnt with great sorrow the passing away of Dr. Aydın Yurtçu, a great Turkish Canadian and distinguished community leader.


Dr. Yurtçu will always be remembered with respect due to his professional competence, courage, exemplary family life, selfless assistance to the newcomers of the Turkish community as well as his relentless endeavours to protect the rights and the interests of our homeland and citizens.


Dr. Yurtçu was so kind to call and congratulate me on my new assignment soon after my arrival. I feel privileged to have at least spoken to him over the phone. I will always remember and cherish our nice talk with gratitude.


I will join the members of our community and Dr. Yurtçu’s family and friends in the funeral to be held in Montreal tomorrow to pay our respects and see him off to eternity.  


On this sad occasion, I wish God’s grace upon him and extend my heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the grieving family, friends and the Turkish-Canadian community.


Tuncay Babalı
