Canadian Medical Association

Edmonton; University of Otago (New Zealand), 1972; obstetrics and gynecology. Died Sept. 4, 2022, aged 74. Survived by his wife Beverley, 4 children and 10 grandchildren. The obituary provided to In Memoriam by his family stated: “On Sept. 4 Christopher Francis Hoskins set out with some family members to conquer ‘Big Sister’ mountain in Canmore, Alta., his favourite climb. On the descent, he suffered a fatal fall. After growing up on the South Island of New Zealand, Chris came to Canada to complete his residency, but ended up finding great satisfaction as an obstetrician in Edmonton for 40 years. Kind, funny and entirely unpretentious, his presence is greatly missed. In lieu of gifts, friends are asked to take a day doing a hike that they enjoy.”
