Kenora, Ont.; University of Manitoba, 1958; general practice. Died Nov. 4, 2018, aged 89. Survived by his wife Donalda, 3 daughters, 7 granddaughters and 1 great-grandson. “Barrie worked as a pharmacist and then decided, like his father, that his calling was to pursue medicine. He served the community of Kenora as a pharmacist and then as a general practitioner for nearly 40 years. He dedicated his life to caring for each and every one of his patients, making house calls, delivering babies, healing and guiding them through life and death. In addition to his practice at the Lake of the Woods Clinic and Lake of the Woods Hospital, Dr. Leckie worked as a coroner for many years — investigating deaths and helping to propose guidelines that made our community a safer place for all. He also worked as a doctor for the Kenora jail toward the end of his career, serving the community in the way he knew best — by healing.”
