Former consultant physician south Cheshire, 1961–84 (b Glasgow 1919; q Cambridge/Glasgow 1943; FRCP), died from metastatic carcinoma on 10 March 2000. After naval service in the Far East he returned to hospital posts before being appointed consultant. He was active in the development of specialist services at Leighton Hospital when it opened in 1971. An accomplished oarsman at Cambridge, he also enjoyed climbing in his youth, leading to a lifelong love of hills and walking. In retirement he relearnt French and German. He was well read and had a wide ranging intellectual curiosity, which in later years was frustrated only by advancing macular disease. This did not dampen a keen interest in historical buildings and architecture and he spent many hours creating gardens in Cheshire and Somerset. He was continuing to plan his garden during his final illness. He leaves a wife, Doris; two sons (one a general practitioner); a daughter (a consultant in intensive care); and four grandsons.
