Charlottetown; Dalhousie University, 1971; neurology. Died April 30, 2019, aged 77. Survived by his wife Gillian, 3 children, 2 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. In 2008, CBC News reported: “Neurologist Reg Hutchings of Charlottetown says PEI has built a number of excellent specialized-care facilities in recent years, but the lack of a stroke unit is a glaring omission. ‘If you have a heart attack, you know you are going to be treated in a very efficient coronary care unit,’ he said. ‘If you have cancer, you will be treated in a state-of-the-art cancer treatment centre. But if you have a stroke, may God help you.’ ”
