"HAF" 2008 Obituary


HAFELFINGER 2008-04-23 published
BORDA, Doctor Ivan T. (1922-2008)
One of the outstanding members of the London medical community, the former head of the gastroenterology department at St Joseph's Hospital, Doctor Ivan BORDA, passed away at the age of 85, on April 19th 2008 at the Cambridge Memorial Hospital, following a heart attack. He is deeply mourned by his wife Joyce, stepchildren Jeffrey HAFELFINGER and Caroline and Peter KRESTA, grandchildren Gregory and Alice and a large number of Friends and colleagues. He had an adventurous life, graduating from medicine in 1951 in Budapest, his birthplace, then serving as a physician in the Hungarian Army, seeing the inside of a communist prison on trumped up charges, emigrating to Canada after the 1956 revolution, finishing his training in internal medicine, gastroenterology and pharmacology in London and Boston.. He was a superb physician and an early expert in epidemiological pharmacology, pioneering the research in adverse event monitoring and clinical trials methodology. He had a triple career: in addition to being appointed as a consultant gastroenterologist at Saint_Joseph's Hospital in 1963, he worked for the World Health Organization in Geneva and as consultant in the pharmaceutical industry in Switzerland. In 1981 he returned to Europe (Switzerland) and divided his time between Basel, consulting for the pharmaceutical industry, and Geneva, where he did much extremely rewarding work for World Health Organization primarily in third world countries. He was fiercely patriotic towards Canada, and always grateful to have been given a home here when he was stateless, returning therefore to Canada in 1990, first to Ottawa and then Cambridge still doing occasional work for World Health Organization until 1995. He was an inveterate globetrotter, knowing a great deal about people and places and a cultured man, a lover of opera, theater, fine dining, tennis and soccer. He had the bearing, style and courtly manner of a Hungarian aristocrat, yet he was a generous and warm friend, a raconteur and witty conversationalist who easily earned the love and respect of all who knew him. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to the Saint_Joseph's Hospital Foundation.

I would like that, but no mourning please.
Death in old age is a solution, not a tragedy"
