Meteghan River, NS; Université Laval, 1952. Died July 25, 2017, aged 90. Survived by his wife Rose, 7 children, 12 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. "Robert delivered 2,337 babies during his 42 years practising medicine in Meteghan. He said his work was 'at once a pleasure and a challenge, and I loved every minute of it.' " A former nursing colleague wrote: "My fondest and first memory of Doctor Robert was when I met him in the caseroom in 1978 and he gave me his signature welcome crushing hug. That was when I knew I was no longer in Halifax nursing, but had really come home."
