Waterloo, Ont.; Royal College of Surgeons (Ireland), 1956; ophthalmology. Died Nov. 22, 2017, aged 91. Survived by his wife Judy, 2 children and 2 grandchildren. “In the late ’50s he was ‘town doc’ in Bothwell, Ont., and then served as a highly skilled eye surgeon in Chatham, Ont., until his retirement in the late ’90s. But Jerry was much more than an MD, and perhaps his greatest accomplishment was his remarkable view on life. In spite of the horrors and tragedies he encountered as a child during WW II, he chose to view life as an amazing gift, enjoying each and every day. In his later years, he took on the iMac with gusto.”
