Burnaby, BC; University of Liverpool (England), 1958; dermatology. Died Jan. 29, 2021, aged 85. Survived by his wife Rosemary, 3 children and 5 grandchildren. “In 1958 he came to Canada, where he interned in Newfoundland and did a residency in Halifax before undertaking dermatology training in Montréal. His last year of specialty training was in Minneapolis, where he stayed to complete an MSc. His passion for mountaineering then brought him to Vancouver, initially to a research position at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and later to private practice in Burnaby. He continued to teach dermatology residents, and retired from UBC as a clinical associate professor emeritus. A large fraction of Burnaby residents were his patients. After diminishing eyesight forced him into retirement in 2000, many patients continued to greet him on the street.”
