Wednesday August 17, at 3.30 p.m., due to the accidental death of doctor Maxence Bourdet-Mathis, head of the emergency department at Jean Coulon hospital, which occurred on August 10 at the age of 54, emergency personnel and the hospital, the SAMU, the representatives of the gendarmerie, the mayor of Gourdon and chairman of the Supervisory Board, the departmental advisers, gathered on the lawn of the Jean Coulon hospital at the same time as the funeral of Maxence in the church of Saint Justin de Levallois-Perret, in Seine St Denis.
A great emotion could be read on all faces, Maxence was more than appreciated, he was adored by all the people who met him.
His colleagues from the Emergency Department sent him these few words, full of tenderness: “Maxence, the epicurean, your kindness, your empathy, your kindness but also your humor and your derision, always with your heart on your sleeve, you leave a very big void.
Maxence the motivator, constantly dynamic, jovial, always with his down jacket, where his office seemed more like a natural history museum, this original and brilliant man created a cheerful, courteous and pleasant atmosphere around him.
He who ate life to the fullest with humor, had dedicated his life to serving his patients and colleagues and improving everyone’s daily life.
A slide show showed him smiling, the music that corresponded to the feelings of his friends and colleagues was played: Bohemian rhapsody by Queen, and I come to tell you goodbye by Gainsbourg.
Max-Olivier Bariot, director of the hospital, addressed his thoughts to his wife and three children and dedicated a poem to her. The ARS delegate from Lot meant a great loss for the health services.
For a long time, his personality will be present in the minds, it’s only a goodbye, good trip Maxence.
