GRAHAM: Dr. Charles Alexander “Alex” of St. Thomas, ON

Posted by on March 14, 2014

Graham 001 (186x250)GRAHAM, CHARLES ALEXANDER “ALEX”

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. C. Alexander Graham on March 11th, 2014. His family surrounded him more and more as his health deteriorated after his beloved wife, Pam, departed February 7th, 2014. He passed away quietly and peacefully. The excellent care of Elgin Manor and the aid of Ms. Chris McEwen and Ms. Eileen Reynolds helped the family.  He is predeceased by his loving wife of 70 years, Pam, who left us a mere thirty-two days earlier. He will be greatly missed by his daughters Victoria, Fiona, Sandra, and Olivia, and their husbands, Vic Clive, Zoltan Paszternak and Fraser Previl. Gramps will be terribly missed by his cherished grandchildren Peter (Julie) Clive, Michael (Pamela) Clive, Alexander Trussler and Sean Previl. Two great-grand-daughters, Gabriella Clive and Charlotte Clive will miss the joy he brought to us all. Dad was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and is predeceased by his parents Andrew and Jesse (nee Bowen) Graham and siblings Margaret “Peggy” Hutton of Calgary, Alberta and Gordon Graham of Spokane, Washington. He did well in school and in sports. He joined the R.C.A.F. in 1942 and flew Spitfires in World War Two in Squadrons 411, 402, and 441. During the war he met Evelyn (Pamela) Davies from Lincolnshire, England. She was a Code and Cipher Officer in the W.A.A.F. They were married December 7th, 1943. After a serious crash and rehabilitation on his shattered back, Alex returned to Canada followed by Pam and baby Victoria. He attended The University of Western Ontario for Medical School and graduated in 1950. He then set up practice in St. Thomas; first on Ross Street, then Talbot Street, and finally on First Avenue.  Dr. Robert Floyd was his partner for many years.  Dr. Dennis Sifton joined the practice for some of that time. Alex practiced as a family physician for over 42 years. He performed surgeries, delivered countless babies, doctored the elderly at Elgin Manor, and attended to the duties of Coroner in Ontario for over a decade. He served on the Board of Directors at St. Thomas Elgin General and was involved with many projects there; most recently one examining the issue of elder abuse. He was also asked to be part of Physicians’ Services Incorporated Foundation in Toronto.  He was chosen to go to England to study Geriatrics in the late 1970’s. He was presented with the Glenn Sawyer Award in recognition of his service to the profession of medicine and his community. Medicine was his calling and a perfect fit for Dad throughout his life. He loved his practice, his patients, and loved getting up and going to work each and every day. Pam was the love of his life. They raised a family, played golf into their 80s, and loved to travel, dance, read and garden together. Alex loved the stage and silver screen, concerts, history, art and literature.  He was an avid sports enthusiast including football, hockey, golf, tennis and baseball. Alex and Pam were members of the St. Thomas Golf and Country Club at Union for many happy years. Alex was the St. Thomas Baron’s “Hockey-Doc” in the late 60’s and even played on a friendly house league until he was 68.   He loved spending time with his family; Sunday lunches or BBQs on the patio and long swims with everyone were his happiest times.  He was always ready for any conversation or fun. His four grandsons were a huge delight for him. He adored his annual trip to Florida for years – this was when the whole family would come together for good fun, food, pool time, conversation, and shopping. He was known for his unique sense of humour and his sweet smile.

A private family service will be held to place his and Pam’s ashes together in St. Thomas Cemetery, South Park.  Family and friends will be invited to attend a memorial service to be held at Williams Funeral Home on Sunday June 8th, 2014 at 1:00pm. Further information to be announced in the paper. Condolences for the family and donations in the name of Dr. C.A. Graham can be made to St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital Emergency Department or Elgin Manor Activation and may be arranged at Williams Funeral Home, 45 Elgin St., St. Thomas. (159-631-0850).Condolences may be sent to ahughson@execulink.com.
