Port Alberni, BC; National Defence Medical Centre (Taiwan), 1959; internal medicine. Died Sept. 27, 2020, aged 87. Survived by 2 children, 4 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. “Fai started practising in Port Alberni in 1969. He became the first resident internist at the West Coast General. The need for an Intensive Care Unit was soon clear, so Fai and the nurses organized classes to train staff, with doctors and nurses learning together. Fai took call whenever he was in town, which was more than 300 nights a year, and was noted for turning up at 3 a.m. in suit and tie. When the call got to be too much, he retired. The hospital, nursing and medical staffs threw him a party for the century!”
