St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que.; Université de Montréal, 1953; general practice. Died April 24, 2020, aged 93. Survived by his wife, Armande Senay, 3 children and 2 grandchildren. “After medical school he began a long career as a general practitioner, and delivered more than 2000 babies at the hospital and also in homes. Accustomed to the long hours of medical practice at the time, when he usually worked between 70 and 90 hours per week, both in office and at home, he decided to take a ‘pre-retirement’ in 1992 by joining the CLSC staff at St-Laurent, where they were only asked to work 35 hours a week! He finally retired in 1996, after 43 years in practice.”
