Canadian Medical Association

St. John’s; Queen’s University Belfast (Northern Ireland), 1963. Died May 16, 2018, aged 92. Survived by his wife Alice, 3 daughters and 2 grandchildren. “George began his impressive academic journey in his hometown of St. John’s before venturing to Nova Scotia to earn his degree in mechanical engineering. He brought his expertise to various mills, but after several years in the engineering field he bravely followed his heart and earned his medical degree. It was during the following 41 years of service as a family physician that his instinct of compassion could truly be felt by his community. Whether he was waking early to bring new life into the world or staying late to tend to a patient, his devotion was strongly valued by those around him until his retirement in 2005.”
