Canadian Medical Association

Tiny, Ont.; Université Laval, 1952. Died May 4, 2017, aged 90. Survived by 5 children, 9 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. "He began his medical practice in Penetanguishene, Ont., with his wife Cécile (deceased Jan. 17, 2017) acting as his nurse. Of Roland, people will generally recall his devotion to his patients. He regularly made house calls, having quickly realized that a number of his patients were not able to leave the house or otherwise make their way to his office. During the early years of his practice many did not have access to health care insurance, and this mattered not to Roland. He treated them free of charge."
