Christophe Habas was a neuroradiologist and former Grand Master of Grand Orient of France. We learned this Saturday from his family.
A mass in his memory will be organized next week in Paris, before his burial in the family vault in Gan, in the Pyrenees-Atlantiques. His family stated that a Masonic tribute would be made to him at his burial.
Christophe Habas entered Freemasonry in 1993 and was elected Grand Master of Grand Orient of France in 2016. This is the principal French Masonic obedience, with approximately 50,000 members. This position he held until the next year.
Daniel Keller, his friend and business manager, said that he was a mason with great stature, of great value, and very discrete. He had been Grand Master before him.
A recognized doctor, Christophe Habas was head of the neuroimaging department at the Quinze-Vingt hospital in Paris and associate professor at the University of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines.
He was awarded the Evian-Les-Bains mineral waters company prize by the Academy of Medicine in 2021 for his research on the MRI analysis of structure and function of the cerebellum.
