WEYMAN o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-02-08 published
LINDSAY, Doctor William Kerr, O.Ont., M.D., B.Sc. (Med.,) M.S., F.R.C.S.C., F.A.C.S.
(3 September 1920-5 February 2008)
Compassionate and caring to everyone he met, Bill LINDSAY passed away peacefully in his 88th year in Toronto. Dearly loved by his wife of 63 years, Peggy (FRANCES,) his children William (Patty,) Barbara (Norm HOTSON,) Katherine (John RILEY) and Anne (John WEYMAN,) and his grandchildren, Jennifer COLLARD (John,) Melissa and James LINDSAY, Brett (Daisy), Kai and Tyler HOTSON, Reed and Julia RILEY, and Tosh, Jesse and Luke WEYMAN. The eldest of five, he was predeceased by his brother Rod and will be remembered with love by his brothers Keith and Barrie and his sister Helen. Bill was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. His parents were born near Lochwinnoch and left the Ottawa Valley on the afternoon of their wedding in 1919 on a one-way rail ticket to Vancouver. His father operated the Vancouver Tugboat Company and, by age 12, Bill was working part-time on the tugboats up and down the coast.
An outstanding doctor, educator and researcher, Doctor Bill LINDSAY spent most of his professional life in Toronto as head of the Division of Plastic Surgery at the Hospital for Sick Children. With skilled surgeon's hands, he helped more than 18,000 patients born with cleft lips and palates and congenital deformities of the hand, as well as accident and burn victims. His medical research focused on the healing of flexor tendons in hands, and he authored 126 medical publications. Bill was Professor, Division of Plastic Surgery at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto for 21 years. The many plastic surgeons who studied with him honoured him by establishing the W.K. Lindsay Club and the annual Lindsay-Thomson Symposium in Paediatric Plastic Surgery. He served in many hospital and academic roles, including President of both the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Association of Plastic Surgeons.
Starting in 1990, Bill coordinated Canadian International Development Agency's Canada-China Burn Centre Plastic Surgery Linkage Program, through which he became Honourary head of the Gansu Provincial People's Hospital in Langzhou City. In retirement, he served as medical trustee and advisor to the R.S. McLaughlin and J.P. Bickell foundations. Internationally and in Canada, Bill was widely recognized and, in 2003, was specially pleased to join the Order of Ontario.
For more than 50 years, Bill and Peggy's farm in the hills of Mono has been their beloved retreat. Together, they turned blowing sand into productive land, planting trees, creating ponds and protecting the headwaters and forests, while raising his Angus cattle. His family and many young colleagues joined him for tree-planting week-ends each spring, and with many hands and shovels, many acres were restored. Bill's love of outdoor life was shared with his children and grandchildren
farming, fishing, skiing, gardening, horsemanship and beekeeping were learned at his side. Bill was at his farm regularly until the month before his death.
His family would like to extend sincere thanks to all the caregivers who helped Bill remain active and at home these past two years, and to the staff at the Toronto Western Hospital who cared for him the last three weeks. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Fund, c/o Dr. C. Forrest, Suite 5430, Hospital for Sick Children, 555 University Avenue, Toronto M5G 1X8. A service celebrating Bill's life will be held at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church in Toronto on Thursday, February 21 at 2 p.m. There will be a spring interment at Relessey Cemetery in Mono.
