Canadian Medical Association

Belleville, Ont.; Queen’s University, 1963; general practice. Died May 8, 2019, aged 81. Survived by his wife Lois, 4 children, 10 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. “In his chosen profession of medicine he was devoted to his patients’ care, from welcoming newborns to providing end-of-life support. His love of people knew no bounds, as he befriended those from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. He also remained lifelong friends with many of his fellow medical-class graduates from Queen’s, where he just attended his 55th class reunion in October 2018. When he got involved in things, it was all in. Hockey was a lifelong passion, and ultimately resulted in bringing Junior A hockey to Belleville, enriching his family’s life and that of his community.”
