The Father of a Perfusionist

Meet My Dad.

This is a long lost picture of my father that my brother Hugh sent to me from Nicaragua.

He was an associate professor of French and Italian @ Purdue University.  Retired emeritus, born in Milano Italy, worked in America, retired in France, and passed last August 2011.

God Bless you Dad !

Your son,


Is this pertinent clinically or does it pertain to perfusion?

Well not really- but I needed to put him on here because I am fundamentally him, and my obscure passion for the profession does not even come close to his fascination with Gustave Flaubert, a French writer who is counted among the greatest Western novelists.

Flaubert is known especially for his first published novel, Madame Bovary (1857), and for his scrupulous devotion to his art and style.

So this is to honor my father who is the Father of a Perfusionist …
