Mr. Gavin Fernandes ‘82/Ms. Teresa Dellar

Gavin began volunteering while still at Loyola and his passion for helping others has resulted in his extensive history of service with charities and organizations in his community. Currently, he spends as much time as possible helping at the West Island Palliative Care Residence, which was co-founded by his wife, Teresa Dellar. Teresa’s unconditional commitment and irrepressible perseverance have been essential ingredients in the growth and development of the West Island Palliative Care Residence, an exceptional facility where patients receive 24-hour comfort care, spiritual and psychological support and advanced end-of-life services. Together, Gavin and Teresa have devoted many years in the service of others. Together, Gavin and Teresa are outstanding examples of what it means to be “men and women for others”.
