Canadian Medical Association

Musquodoboit Harbour, NS; Dalhousie University, 1975. Died Nov. 12, 2017, aged 71. Survived by his wife Wendy, 3 children and 7 grandchildren. “Upon graduation, Phil began a 35-year career as a rural family physician on the Eastern Shore. He was blessed to work in a practice that reflected his values and, through the years, he came to know and love his patients, who often encompassed several generations of one family. He also thought it was important to participate and contribute to both provincial and national medical associations in order to impact the care that all patients would receive.” A former patient wrote: “He always had lots of time for a good political discussion, and because of his marvellous sense of humour it was actually a joy to go to the doctor’s office.”
