Calgary; University of Geneva (Switzerland), 1954. Died July 1, 2018, aged 92. Survived by 2 children and 2 grandchildren. “Massoud was born in Tehran, Iran, and left for Geneva as a young man to pursue his medical studies. Following the successful completion of his degree he relocated to England, where he undertook his residency in pediatrics. After serving briefly as a physician in both Iran and Finland, he and his wife braved the frontiers of Western Canada, moving to Regina. In 1967, the family was lured to Calgary, where chinook winds promised some respite from minus-40 temperatures.”
