Grove, Ned - San Francisco  
Ned Murray Grove On the bright and sunny day of June 14, 2016, with his beloved wife Jan by his side, Ned Murray Grove started his long journey home. Ned was a kind, gentle, brilliant and talented man, with great knowledge. He loved baseball, football, jazz and his family most of all. Ned was born in Toronto, Canada, on April 30, 1933. He received his B.A. and M.D. degrees from the University of Toronto. While at University, he was on the varsity wrestling team. He trained in Orthopedic Surgery and Hand Surgery at Northwestern University and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada in 1962. Dr. Grove practiced orthopedics in Saskatoon Sakatchewan from 1963 to 1965 and then moved, with his young family, to San Mateo County where he practiced from 1965 to 2014. He served as Chief of Orthopedics at Peninsula, Mills and Chope hospitals. He also served on the teaching staffs of Stanford and U.C.S.F. and he was a member of many professional organizations. Ned was a talented artist. He coauthored and contributed illustrations and additions to "Broken Long Bone, its Bionomics and Man," published in 1963. In 1981, Ned received an MBA from Pepperdine University. To illustrate Ned's devotion to his profession, in January 1986, he raced from his busy clinic to help a man who got his hand caught in heavy machinery on a refuse truck. Ned jumped in the truck, ignoring the danger, extricated the man's hand, rode with him in the ambulance and operated on the hand with an excellent result. For this action, he received an Exceptional Service Award from the Belmont Police Department. Then, in July and August, 2007, Ned served as a Children's Orthopedic Surgeon on the Ship MV Africa Mercy in Liberia. The mission brings hope to the world's forgotten poor. Ned performed Surgery on the most severe deformities and injuries to children. The following year he served in Ethiopia on the Mercy ship in May and June. Dr. Grove published numerous writings in the medical field and participated in many programs as a Special lecturer over the course of many years. Ned leaves behind his loving wife, children and their spouses, grandchildren and his dear sister, Linda Farber. Ned went on his voyage from life with the serenity of a man who has completed all his affairs and leaves for a permanent rest in the country with his God. There will be a celebration of the life he so loved, the date to be announced in the near future. If anyone wishes to make a donation in his memory, please do so to Mission Hospice and Home Care, 1670 South Amphlett Boulevard Suite 300, San Mateo, California or to the Alzheimer-Dementia Facility at U.C.S.F. or to a charity of their choice.
