FORBES, Dr. R. D. Clarke
MD FRCP Pathology
Professor Emeritus McGill University
Passed away in Toronto on July 17, 2013. Survived by his much-loved wife and best friend Sheena, dear father to Charlotte (Douglas Coulter) and grandsons Evan and Gordon, and sister Heather Stavang (Hank) of Springfield Maine and St Augustine Florida. Predeceased by his son Duncan, and parents Robert (Bob) and Norma Forbes of Fredericton. A scholar and academic, Clarke was educated at Rothesay School and Queen's University. Upon retiring from McGill, Clarke devoted himself to expanding his knowledge through his love of books and history. Always a dog lover, Clarke could be found with a book in his hand and a dog by his side. He will be sadly missed. A memorial reception will be held at a later date for close friends and family.
