WILSON, Dr. W. John, M.D., (F.R.C.PC)
Passed away peacefully at Uxbridge Cottage Hospital on Saturday, February 5th, 2005. John is sadly missed and proudly remembered by his beloved wife Marion, his sons, John (Susanne) and Douglas (Susan,) granddaughters, Erin (Rick ANDREWS) and Sarah (Ken MERCER,) his extended family and the many Friends, colleagues and patients whose lives he touched over 91 years. John's earliest years were spent in the Kirkland Lake area where his father, Dr. John P WILSON, carried on a. general practice serving the local mining communities. Later, the family relocated to Richmond Hill where John grew up, together with his sister Olive 'Betty' and brothers Fred and Eric. In 1937 John realized his dream of following his father into medicine, graduating from the University of Toronto with a specialty in pediatrics. While at medical school John met Marion ROGERS, who was then nursing at the Hospital for Sick Children. John and Marion were married on July 15th 1939 and there began a love that simply grew and inspired all those who knew them. John never missed an opportunity to speak lovingly of 'my bride', words he could barely express without choking up, they were so deeply felt. After they were married he and Marion moved to Richmond Hill and John joined his father in medical practice. Because his father was already known to the community as 'Dr. WILSON', John became known to many colleagues and patients as 'Dr. John', a name by which many Friends continued to know him through the years. When World War 2 began, John enlisted (1940) in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a medical officer and served overseas with the 407 'Demon' Squadron, between April, 1944 and November, 1945, attaining the rank of Squadron Leader. John was also mentioned in dispatches. After the war John and Marion, with their two boys, John and Doug, first resided in East York and later, for many years, in Leaside. During these years he joined the staff of the Hospital for Sick Children and established a highly-respected pediatric practice in the north part of Toronto. In 1967 John accepted an appointment as Chief of Pediatrics at the newly-built Scarborough Centenary Hospital. During the following years, until his retirement in 1984, he experienced all the challenges of being at the leading edge of pediatric care in a community-focused hospital. Many innovations, particularly those aimed at supporting parents in the care of their sick children, were developed at Scarborough Centenary Hospital at that time. It was also during this time that John began a long and dedicated commitment to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital. After retiring, John and Marion divided their time between life at their beloved Quaker Ridge Farm in Uxbridge and their winter home, and many Friends, at Lake Fairways in North Fort Myers, Florida. In recent years John and Marion remained active and enthusiastic members of the Uxbridge community enjoying golf, Friends and community activities. John was always sustained by the things he loved the most - his devoted family, his Friends, his faith, his love of the care of children and his many memories of a life well-lived. His family, Friends and community now celebrate that wonderful life. Visitation will take place at the Low and Low Uxbridge Chapel, 23 Main Street, Uxbridge, Ontario (905 852 3073) on Thursday, February 10th, 7: 00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., and on Friday, February 11th, 2: 00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. The family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Brian BATTEN and the staff of the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital for their gentle and skilled care, especially during the past two weeks. At John and Marion's request, a memorial service will be held with the family at a later time. Instead of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Foundation or a charity of choice.

WILSON, Dr. W. John, M.D., (F.R.C.P.C)
Passed away peacefully at Uxbridge Cottage Hospital on Saturday, February 5th, 2005. John is sadly missed and proudly remembered by his beloved wife, Marion, his sons, John (Susanne) and Douglas (Susan,) granddaughters, Erin (Rick ANDREWS) and Sarah (Ken MERCER,) his extended family and the many Friends, colleagues and patients whose lives he touched over 91 years. John's earliest years were spent in the Kirkland Lake area where his father, Dr. John P. WILSON, carried on a general practice serving the local mining communities. Later, the family relocated to Richmond Hill where John grew up, together with his sister Olive "Betty" and brothers Fred and Eric. In 1937 John realized his dream of following his father into medicine, graduating from the University of Toronto with a specialty in pediatrics. While at medical school John met Marion ROGERS, who was then nursing at the Hospital for Sick Children. John and Marion were married on July 15th, 1939 and there began a love that simply grew and inspired all those who knew them. John never missed an opportunity to speak lovingly of "my bride", words he could barely express without choking up, they were so deeply felt. After they were married he and Marion moved to Richmond Hill and John joined his father in medical practice. Because his father was already known to the community as "Dr. WILSON," John became known to many colleagues and patients as "Dr. John", a name by which many Friends continued to know him through the years. When World War 2 began, John enlisted (1940) in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a medical officer and served overseas with the 407 "Demon" Squadron, between April, 1944 and November, 1945, attaining the rank of Squadron Leader. John was also mentioned in dispatches. After the war John and Marion, with their two boys, John and Doug, first resided in East York and later, for many years, in Leaside. During these years he joined the staff of the Hospital for Sick Children and established a highly-respected pediatric practice in the north part of Toronto. In 1967 John accepted an appointment as Chief of Pediatrics at the newly-built Scarborough Centenary Hospital. During the following years, until his retirement in 1984, he experienced all the challenges of being at the leading edge of pediatric care in a community-focused hospital. Many innovations, particularly those aimed at supporting parents in the care of their sick children, were developed at Scarborough Centenary Hospital at that time. It was also during this time that John began a long and dedicated commitment to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital. After retiring, John and Marion divided their time between life at their beloved Quaker Ridge Farm in Uxbridge and their winter home, and many Friends, at Lake Fairways in North Fort Myers, Florida. In recent years John and Marion remained active and enthusiastic members of the Uxbridge community enjoying golf, Friends and community activities. John was always sustained by the things he loved the most - his devoted family, his Friends, his faith, his love of the care of children and his many memories of a life well-lived. His family, Friends and community now celebrate that wonderful life. Visitation will take place at the Low and Low Uxbridge Chapel, 23 Main Street, Uxbridge, Ontario (905 852-3073) on Thursday, February 10th, 7: 00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., and on Friday, February 11th, 2: 00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. The family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Brian BATTEN and the staff of the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital for their gentle and skilled care, especially during the past two weeks. At John and Marion's request, a memorial service will be held with the family at a later time. Instead of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Foundation or a charity of choice.
