Kamloops, BC; University of British Columbia (UBC), 1991; general surgery. Died Aug. 24, 2019, aged 55. Survived by his wife Hilary and 4 children. “David and Hilary were happy to move back to BC in 1998 when a position became available at the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. David was passionate about his work. For 20 years, he practised general surgery with what he referred to as ‘the most amazing and truly supportive group of colleagues,’ which he believed he would not have found anywhere else. As a clinical instructor for the UBC Faculty of Medicine, sharing his knowledge by teaching residents and medical students was often the highlight of his day. Always a strong vocal advocate for the Royal Inland Hospital and its services, he dedicated many tireless hours on various committees to make it a better place for the people of Kamloops.”
