Survived by 4 children, 11 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. “Dad served as a pilot in the war, and afterwards took advantage of veterans’ legislation to return to school and obtain his medical degree. He began and completed his career as a family practitioner in Streetsville, Ont., where he and his partners, Dr. Jack Dodds and Dr. Keith MacDonald, established the Streetsville Medical Centre in 1962. Dad, a keen diagnostician, was the consummate country doctor who regularly made house calls and who delivered over 2,000 babies to the growing Streetsville community. He was also privileged to serve the Carmelite Sisters Nursing Home, where he dedicated over 50 years of compassionate care to its residents and the Carmelite Sisters themselves.”
