Canadian Medical Association

Victoria; Leiden University (The Netherlands), 1951. Died April 3, 2018, aged 93. Survived by his wife Hennie, 3 sons and 2 grandsons. “After graduating, Andre moved to Canada and settled in Victoria, where he had secured a residency at the Jubilee Hospital. He and Hennie loved Victoria, so setting up a family practice there was an easy decision. The way medicine was practised in those days was quite different from today. Andre delivered babies, made house calls, did surgery and worked long hours. He was a skilled doctor, but his quiet, caring manner is what his patients remembered and loved about him. He retired in 1990 at age 65.”
