Burlington, Ont.; McGill University, 1958; urology. Died Sept. 12, 2017, aged 86. Survived by his wife Pat, 2 children and 4 grandchildren. "Earl practised general urology but specialized in prostatic surgery. In 1981 he joined McMaster Health Sciences as an associate professor and was appointed chief of surgery at the Henderson General Hospital. In addition to his busy urologic clinical practice, he rationalized urologic services and was appointed director of urology, a position he held until his retirement in 2000. He looked back with great fondness on his contributions to the growth of academic urology in Hamilton, and at McMaster University in particular."
