Woodstock, Ont.; army, WW II; University of Western Ontario, 1957. Died Feb. 28, 2017, aged 92. Survived by 2 sons and 4 grandchildren. In 2010, he told the website Impowerage why he still practised as a surgical assistant at age 86: "[Medicine] keeps you young. I love having a reason to get up every morning with a purpose. I know of no other profession I would ever want to be part because there is so much satisfaction to medicine, whether it's greeting a new baby you just delivered (the last was in 1990) or talking with that patient who is on the mend."
