ST. AUBIN, Dr. David John - Passed away, peacefully, in his home in Gales Ferry, Connecticut, on September 10, 2002, following a short but fierce battle with cancer. He was 50 years old. He is survived by his three children, Marc 28, Diane 24 and Eric 21; as well as his second wife, Lisa, whom he wed in a small ceremony on September 6, 2002. On January 17, 1952, Dave was born in Montreal to Norman and Marjorie St. Aubin and was joined by his brother, Robert two years later. Growing up in Hudson, Quebec, Dave was an extremely bright young man with a love of science and learning that would lead him to dedicate his life to research, taking him around the world in his study of marine mammals. While he was a student at the University of Michigan, Dave met and married Jane Lehmann, his first wife and mother of his children. Soon after, they settled in Guelph, Ontario, where for 18 years Dave conducted research on marine mammals for the University of Guelph. In 1988 he received his PhD in Pathology and in 1990 he published his first book, Sea Mammals and Oil. He followed his work to Mystic, Connecticut, where he met Lisa Ellsworth, who would be his companion and later his wife. For the last nine years, Dave worked for the Mystic Aquarium as Director of Research and Veterinary Services. He adored his job, and though he may have complained about having to give tours, he lit up when talking about his work at the Aquarium, not so secretly loving every minute. Dave's passion for this work carried him to the Canadian North often, and it was there where he felt most at home, hip deep in icy water, struggling with a 900 pound White Whale. We know that David will be looking down on us from the Arctic Circle, where he can now spend every minute with the whales he loved so much. A celebration of David's life will be held on the beach at Nappatree Point in Watch Hill on Wednesday, September 18 at 5 p.m. Byles-Groton Memorial Home, 310 Thames St., New London, Conn. is in charge of arrangements. Donations in his memory can be made to the Marine Mammal Stranding Program of the Sea Research Foundation.
