LOOPSTRA, Doctor Lawrence W., M.D., (F.R.C.S.C)
It is with great sadness that the family of Larry LOOPSTRA announce his passing on June 22, 2007 in Hamilton, Ontario after a brief illness. Larry will be greatly missed by his wife Pamela (nee ROSS,) his four children, Alyssa ALKEMA (Tom,) Emily (Nick,) Jonathan (Amanda), and Benjamin, his brothers, Chuck (Claudia), Allard (Margaret) and Bert (Willy), his mother-in-law, Betty ROSS, his sister-in-law, Susan KILNER, his brother-in-law, Robert ROSS (Jill,) his nephews and nieces and numerous other relatives, Friends, colleagues, and patients too many to mention. Larry was born in The Netherlands in 1941 and grew up in Groningen and The Hague until immigrating to Canada with his parents, the late Rev. Willem and Ekelina LOOPSTRA in 1951. He obtained his elementary and high school education in Hamilton, Ontario and attended the University of Western Ontario in London between 1960 and 1966 with a degree in medicine. Larry interned at St. Bonifice in Winnipeg, Manitoba and thereafter served 3 years as a medical doctor with the Royal Canadian Air Force in Germany pursuing his passion for medicine, travel, and skiing. On his return to Canada, he completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and established his practice in Hamilton. Larry was an accomplished surgeon, obstetrician and respected clinical professor with the Hamilton Health Sciences Centre at McMaster University, delivering thousands of newborns during his career, as well as performing as a skilled surgeon. He pursued his career with dedication, professionalism and caring, while at the same time maintaining a balanced life style through family, church and his new found love for golf. His loving, caring and selfless nature shone through all his relationships (Galatians 5: 22-23). Larry was an avid sailor who loved his boat Sonic Boom, winning many Lake Ontario races. He last sailed his boat with his family on June 10, 2007. Many thanks to Leslie GAUTHIER, Doctor S. KOZIAK, Dr. N. VALETTAS, and Doctor J.D. SCHWALM.
