Julien Collot, “the most amazing boy in the world,” a lifelong resident of Chatham NJ, passed away on Friday, January 21, 2011, surrounded by his family at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan, NY. He was 8 years old. Julien was the beloved son of Jacqueline and Thierry Collot, and the precious grandson of Patricia and James Cannon and Serafine and Bernard Collot.
If measured in years, his life was too short, yet he has touched, inspired and influenced more people than most could hope for during a full life span.
Julien was courageous, strong, loving, and possessed wisdom far beyond his years.
The family requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the Julien Collot Foundation, www.thejuliencollotfoundation.org, which was founded in 2007 in honor of “Ju Ju” and is dedicated to funding research and trials for pediatric cancers and to assist affected families in need.
Julien loved vacationing in Aruba with the Cannon & Collot families, which are many time repeat guests of the island and own timeshare vacation weeks at La Cabana Beach & Racquet Club and at Paradise Beach Villas.
The funeral service was held at St. Teresa of Avila Roman Catholic Church on January 26th, 2011. He was laid to rest in Dover, NJ. For Memorials please go to The Julien Collot Foundation, www.thejuliencollotfoundation.org or P.O. Box 207, Berkeley Heights, NJ 07922
