Canadian Medical Association

North York, Ont.; University of Toronto, 1968; family medicine. Died Jan. 6, 2018, aged 72. Survived by his wife Laurel, 2 children and 3 grandchildren. “In the early 1980s Marty pioneered the field of emergency medicine in Toronto. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of medicine, but what moved his patients and students most was his humanity and humility, compassion and humour. Marty was cherished by countless medical students and paramedics whom he taught and touched, but his greatest lesson was to never lose sight of a patient’s dignity. We will try to live up to your brilliant example, Doc.”
