Vancouver; University College of Cork (Ireland), 1944; family medicine. Died Nov. 7, 2017, aged 95. Survived by 7 children, 19 grandchildren and a great-grandchild. “In 1953, our Dad read an article about Vancouver and, dazzled by the city’s beauty, made an immediate decision to move the family here. He practised medicine for 50 years, serving several generations of families. He was also a clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia, served as head of the Family Practice Department at Shaughnessy Hospital, and maintained a wonderful rapport with other medical professionals.” A former colleague wrote: “When I was a medical intern in emergency at St. Paul’s Hospital, he was the best GP there. I was really impressed with his caring nature, patience and good common sense.”
