Guelph, Ont.; Queen’s University, 1957; urology. Died Jan. 15, 2022, aged 91. Survived by his wife Gwendolyn, 4 children, 9 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. “Over the years, Jim served as president of the medical staff at Guelph General Hospital, chairman of the Urology Section of the Ontario Medical Association, and chief of surgery and chief of medical staff at St Joseph’s Hospital. He held in high regard his colleagues in any role, always speaking of the great team of nurses, technicians, kitchen staff and cleaners, and worrying if something went amiss for any of them. He cared deeply for his patients, and some of his favourite clinical work included travelling to see his patients ‘up highway 6’ in Fergus, Hanover, Mount Forest and Durham.”
