To the family of the late Dr. Cochrane:

It is with deep regret that Doctors Nova Scotia received word of the death of your family member, Dr. William Cochrane. I know I speak for all of our members when I extend to you and your family the association's sincerest sympathy.

Doctors Nova Scotia has made a contribution to the Memorial Fund for Nova Scotia Physicians in memory of Dr. Cochrane. The fund was established in 1975 to honour the memory of its deceased members. The income from the memorial fund is used to support the education of students in the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie University.

Sincere personal regrets,

Manoj Vohra
President, Doctors Nova Scotia

I met Dr. Cochrane when he became the President of the University of Calgary. In that role he was exceptional, seeking out the best advice from faculty regardless of their rank. I found him to be a warm and caring administrator and a good listener. My deepest condolences to the Cochrane family. - Gene Milone, Emeritus Professor and Emer. Director of the Rothney Astrophysical Observatory, University of Calgary

To the Cochrane family, we send our deepest sympathies. The community - here and further afield - has lost a tremendous person. Bill was a tremendous and extraordinary physician, colleague and friend to so many. His legacy and your memories continue together. Take care. Linda and Greg Powell

My deepest sympathy to the Cochrane family. Dr. Cochrane recruited me to Connaught Laboratories - as he did so many others. He was a mentor and a role model, a great man with a terrific sense of humour who was always cheerful and optimistic. I was saddened to learn of his passing.

Gillian and family. My deepest condolences to you and the family on the loss of your father. He was such a gentlemen and caring person. Always took the time to say hello when attending UofC in the 70's when he was the President. Always made everyone feel special

Condolences to the whole Cochrane Family on this sad day. We are thinking of you all and wish we could be there with you. Bill was a wonderful man, a Canadian pioneer and leader. He will be sorely missed. The whole Cochrane family have always been so wonderful to my and Judith's family. We know you will keep Bill's memories and his passions alive. May he rest in his very well deserved peace.

I had the privilege to work with this quite extraordinary man in the early days of the Foothills Hospital. Bill was the first Head of Paediatrics, then the founding Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Calgary. He was a man who was easy to admire,a man of great substance and capabilities and a man who contributed greatly to Canada and Alberta. Calgary has lost one of its best and I offer my prayers to Phyllis and to the Cochrane family at this very difficult time.
