Sculptor Christopher Rees Suffers Stroke

Just before Christmas, 2002, this well-known local sculptor and father of our graphic designer, Chuck Rees, experienced a debilitating stroke. Chris has progressed to the point where he is speaking and has movement on his right side. He and his family fear however, that he may never regain his full abilities; not only may he never walk again, he may never sculpt again. (Chris' most recent commission was a bronze bust of former Deputy Prime Minister and Windsor native Herb Gray.) To aid in his rehabilitation at Windsor Western Regional Hospital, his family and friends have established a fund.
