Canadian Medical Association

Surrey, BC; University of Saskatchewan, 1967; general practice. Died July 18, 2020, aged 80. Survived by his wife, Dr. Jean Mercer, 2 children and 2 grandchildren. “A major contributor to the growth of the medical community in White Rock, BC, since 1969, Stan was 1 of the original 6 doctors at the Hilltop Medical Clinic, where he spent 35 years in practice after an internship at the Royal Columbian. Stan assisted in the births of many of current White Rock-area citizens. He also served on the board of the Peace Arch Hospital Society. At 6-foot 10 inches tall, he was always quick to duck under the doorway and immediately take a seat in order not to frighten his younger patients. He was a gentle giant with a quick medical mind and a heart of gold.”
