West Vancouver; McGill University, 1953. Died Sept. 15, 2017, aged 89, after complications from a stroke. Survived by 4 children and 3 grandchildren. “After medical school Tom moved to West Vancouver, where he practised medicine for 47 years. Dr. Tom’s busy practice was old-style, full-service medicine with house calls, deliveries, surgery, hospital rounds and care of all ages, including a tender focus on the elderly. Tom loved and lived medicine, and was a respected member of the medical staff at Lions Gate Hospital until his retirement in 2000. His other passion was music. He never walked anywhere without humming or whistling like a one-man marching band. His ‘Doctors’ Band,’ which comprised retired physicians, played for nursing home residents throughout the year, with some band members older than the audience.”
