Survived by his wife, Mary Louise, 4 children and his grandchildren. “On returning to Canada after training in England, Don joined a family practice in Kimberley, BC, initially intending to stay for a short time. However, he became rooted there for 18 years due to the marvellous friends, community and outdoor life. In 1971, Don arranged for a unique and memorable 1-year exchange to Australia. In 1978 the family moved to North Vancouver, where Don brought the skills, values and compassion of a small-community GP to urban practice.”
