Victoria; McGill University, 1969; diagnostic radiology. Died May 1, 2021, aged 79. Survived by his wife Wendy, 3 children, 2 stepchildren, 14 grandchildren and 1 great-granddaughter. “On receiving his medical degree, Don returned to the West Coast in 1970 and did his residency in radiology at the University of British Columbia. His first position as a radiologist was at Nanaimo (BC) Regional General Hospital, where he spent many happy years. In 1998 the ultimate semi-retirement opportunity knocked, and Don had his dream job of providing radiologic services for Lady Minto Hospital on BC’s Salt Spring Island. During that time, Don mentored numerous medical students and was chief of medical staff for a number of years. When he turned 70 Don decided it was time to retire. He moved back to Victoria in 2013, where for a short time he did some volunteer teaching at the Island Medical School at the University of Victoria.”
