Dartmouth, NS; University of London (England), 1952; general practice; senior member, Medical Society of Nova Scotia (MSNS). Died April 21, 2019, aged 90. Survived by 3 children, 7 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. “Although he was terrible in home or car repair, sports and anything involving accurate trajectory, our father did, however, shine for his patients for 45 years. In 1958, he joined the Dartmouth Medical Centre, became a partner in 1963 and a senior partner in 1984. He also worked as a preceptor in the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie University, and was on the courtesy staff of the Victoria General, Grace Maternity and Halifax Infirmary hospitals. After retiring from general practice in 1998, he was awarded honourable staff membership at the Dartmouth General Hospital, where he had been one of the founding doctors. Doctors NS aided his successful challenge to mandatory age retirement so that, at age 75, he could still enjoy hospital privileges by performing surgical assists in the OR. A man of duty and honour always, Dad involved himself in the greater community; although private, thoughtful and introverted by nature, his duty and desire to give back to his adopted country drove his generosity of time and effort. He volunteered for a plethora of organizations and causes too numerous to list. Being awarded senior membership in the MSNS was a very proud achievement for Anthony.”
