Survived by 4 children, 6 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren and his ex-wife, Mary. “Wanting to be a doctor from an early age, he entered medical school at Queen’s at age 19, and after graduating he interned for a year before taking over a general practice in Kingston. In 1959 he started training in psychiatry at the newly expanded Ontario Hospital Kingston (Kingston Psychiatric Hospital, KPH). He was certified in psychiatry by the Royal College in 1963, and in 1977 he became medical director at KPH. In 1989 he retired from KPH and started a private practice that he continued until recently. He was an associate professor (adjunct) at Queen’s University for many years, and supported the development of research activities at the KPH, including the Treatment and Evaluation Unit and Psychopharmacology Unit. Above all else, he was a caring doctor who applied great skill and effort in diagnosing and helping his patients.”
