Brock T. Ketcham M.D. Obituary
Brock T. Ketcham, MD, 66, died peacefully at his home on Friday evening October 24, 2014. He was born in Rutland, the son of Treverton and Annabelle Ketcham and grew up on the family farm in Whiting. After graduation from Otter Valley Union High School in Brandon, he attended the University of Vermont and UVM College of Medicine. He did his internship at Harkness Hospital in San Francisco and then received his Master's in Public Health from the University of California at Berkeley. He joined the US Public Health Service and worked as a physician researcher for the US Environmental Protection Agency in Chapel Hill, NC for 3 years where his research on ozone pollution resulted in an amendment to the federal Clean Air Act.
However, Brock's true passion was medicine and he returned to Vermont to complete a residency in radiology. For the next 23 years he worked as a diagnostic radiologist at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington.
Brock loved vegetable gardening and vacationing in Maine with his family.
He leaves his wife Patricia (Germond) Ketcham, son Ethan Ketcham of Chester, daughter Alison Ketcham of Fairfax, VA, father Treverton Ketcham of Whiting and brother Shaun Ketcham of Sudbury. He was predeceased by his mother in 2001.
There will be no formal services.
Memorial gifts may be made in Brock's memory to the SVMC Cancer Center, VNA and Hospice of Southwestern Vermont or the Salvation Army of Bennington in care of the Hanson Walbridge & Shea Funeral Home, 213 West Main Street, Bennington, VT 05201.
