Frank Habets, le grand collectionneur de trilobites de l'Ontario

Frank, je n'ai pas eu la chance de te connaître et tu nous as quitté bien trop tôt, mais j'ai eu plusieurs occasions d'entendre parler de toi et de ton incroyable collection de trilobites. Je te remercie sincèrement d'avoir donné tes fossiles au MPE. Nous aurons la chance de transmettre ton héritage aux générations futures dont nous ne sommes que les gardiens temporaires. Nos activités et nos actions auprès des politiques s'accentuent pour qu'on ait un jour un musée digne de ce nom au Québec et nous faisons tout pour être à la hauteur de tes attentes. Repose en paix Frank, au milieu de la terre et des fossiles que tu aimes tant.

Frank Habets

Frank you will be surely be missed. Your humour, knowledge and teaching abilities of what you know has left a big hole. You always took the time to teach me more about fossils and especially trilobites. I enjoyed going to La Prairie twice a year to learn more and more. I will continue to go to that special place and continue to pass on the knowledge that you have left with me. As a colleague you always had a very good work ethic and again you shared your knowledge with those around you. I will always treasure the signed photograph book of your fossil collection and I know that some day it will be a sought after publication and maybe some day I will find fascinating fossils like you. Frank, now that the suffering has gone, you will rest peacefully with the fossil world around you. Fossil Frank, it has been my honour to have known you. My thoughts are shared with my partner Ted.
