Canadian Medical Association

Oakville, Ont.; University of London (England), 1949; former surgeon lieutenant, Royal Navy; general practice. Died May 6, 2022, aged 94. Survived by his wife Ann, 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. “Lured by a residency, Frank and his treasured Jaguar immigrated to Canada in 1955. After landing in Montréal, he proceeded to drive across this vast country to Victoria, where he held a position at the Department of Veterans Affairs Hospital. In 1956 the family moved to London, Ont., for another residency and research fellowship in cardiovascular medicine at the University of Western Ontario. A year later an opportunity arose to set up a private practice at the Queensway Hospital in Etobicoke, Ont., where Frank became head of family and general practice, a position he held from 1966 to 1982. Frank retired from his Ontario practice in 1989 to take Ann back to British Columbia and fulfil a promise he had made to her many years prior, and continued to work as a locum doctor. Finally, in 1999, the decision was made to move back to Burlington, Ont., to be closer to family and become full-time grandparents.”
