Canadian Medical Association

Boynton Beach, Florida; McGill University, 1943; captain, Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps (RCAMC), WW II; general surgery. Died Dec. 3, 2020, aged 99. Survived by his wife Petty, 2 children, 6 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. “Paul graduated from medical school at age 22, and after graduation saw active service in the RCAMC in WW II. After the war he finished his education, and eventually became an associate professor of surgery at McGill. Paul’s career saw him quickly become a leader, first as chief of surgery at Reddy Memorial Hospital in Montréal, and later as chief of staff at Palm Beach Regional Hospital in Florida. A true Renaissance man, one day Paul might be found doing house calls, and the next he'd be in the lab doing cutting-edge research. He wrote dozens of renowned research papers, and the development of the Niloff Bile Duct Tube helped countless patients. Paul retained his brilliant medical mind to the end, and published his last paper at age 91.”
