Honours Bachelor of Science, 1970

I graduated with an honour’s bachelors of science degree in chemistry from Lakehead in 1970.  Next, I obtained a medical degree from U of T in 1977.  My internship was at St. Joseph’s Hospital on the Queensway in Toronto.  For the next 40 years I enjoyed a career in family practice at the Port Arthur Health Centre.  I was on active staff at the Port Arthur General and St. Joseph Hospitals.  Currently I am retired from the medical scene; however, my interests are numerous.  

I am married to Archdeacon Deborah who is the priest at St. Paul’s Anglican Church.  I am very much involved in a host of church activities from choir work to general maintenance of church property.  We have been blessed with 4 wonderful children namely Dr. John, dermatologist, Dr. Paul, dentist, Laura, lawyer and Thomas, research scientist.  John and Paul live in Toronto.  Laura lives in Ottawa. Thomas lives in Oulu, Finland.  Presently Deborah and I are blessed with 11 grandchildren. We enjoy our summers at our cottage on One Island Lake.
