Survived by his wife Mitchie, 4 children, 5 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. “In 1955 they moved to Pembroke, where Robert began his medical career as a family physician. He later served as a general surgeon and obstetrician after completing further training in Montréal and Cook County, Illinois.” A patient wrote: “Dr. McEwen was a very important part of our lives when he was our family doctor. From the time I was pregnant with our daughter in 1964 until his retirement (1993), we could count on him to keep us healthy and informed. He had a wonderful manner, kind and patient, always ready to listen to our concerns. He will be truly missed by many.”
