Survived by his wife, Dr. Lois Stayura, 3 children and 4 grandsons. “After his training, Ali established his practice in New Westminster, BC, and consulted at the Royal Columbian, Surrey Memorial, Eagle Ridge and St. Mary’s hospitals. He was recognized by his medical peers as a curious and extremely thorough physician, who loved taking on the most challenging cases. He cared deeply about the well-being of his patients and gave generously of his time, listening carefully to each person’s story in consultations that could last for hours. His goal was always to provide the best care possible, no matter how long it took.”
