Vancouver; University of Liverpool (England), 1945; family medicine. Died June 30, 2018, aged 94. Survived by 6 children and 10 grandchildren. “Dr. Croft trained to become a physician and general surgeon, and served as a medical officer in the Royal Air Force shortly after WW II. After taking over his father’s practice and maintaining a clinic for many years in England, Stanley, Sheila and 5 of their children immigrated to Canada in 1965, where Stanley built a practice in North Burnaby, BC. The aid and support he provided as prison physician at the Vancouver Jail from 1970-75 earned him a reputation for unselfish dedication to an unwanted and neglected segment of society. He also served a term as chief of staff of Fellburn Hospital and served on the staff of Burnaby General Hospital before retiring in 1990.”
