Canadian Medical Association

Guelph, Ont.; University of Western Ontario, 1956; family medicine. Died March 23, 2022, aged 90. Survived by 4 children and 2 grandchildren. “He spent his entire working life serving patients and their families in Exeter, Ont. It was what doctors did in those days, putting in long hours, making house calls, being on call for emergencies over holidays and weekends, and delivering babies at South Huron District Hospital. Recognizing the quality of his work, the university approached him about a teaching position in its family practice unit, but he would not desert his patients for the halls of academia. In the days before the Ontario Health Insurance Plan, families were sometimes unable to pay for their medical care, but this did not affect the quality of care he provided. After retiring from his family practice, he continued to provide care and support for the residents at the Exeter Villa home for seniors.”
