St. Catharines, Ont.; Canadian Dental Corps, WW II; University of Toronto, 1957. Died April 30, 2017, aged 94. Survived by his wife Theo, a son, 2 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. "Despite having established a successful dental practice, Bill's true passion was medicine. Every year he made his application to medical school, and in August of 1953 he walked away from his dental career to study medicine. His career in general practice in St. Catharines spanned 5 decades and saw him make house calls, deliver babies and run an office practice, and he never left the office until everyone was accommodated."
