Canadian Medical Assocation

Cow Head, Nfld.; University of Western Ontario (UWO), 1968; former editor, UWO Medical Journal; general practice. Died Nov. 15, 2018, aged 74. “Harold went through university on the Regular Officer Training Plan, so many of his summer months were spent training at military bases across Canada. Although the Canadian Forces were amalgamated in 1968, Harold always insisted that he was ‘navy,’ and was thus in Maritime Command with the rank of surgeon lieutenant-commander. He served 3 years with the navy, and in his final year served as medical doctor for the NATO fleet. After completing his stint with the Forces, Harold spent his whole medical career in Newfoundland and Labrador. He spent time in Catalina, Bell Island, Corner Brook and Cow Head. After retiring, Harold continued to work in Cow Head as a locum doctor up until his death.” A patient wrote: “We feel like one of our family members is gone because we loved him dearly. His commitment, devotion and care for his patients was unsurpassed.”
