Not sure what to say?

Such a loss. Many don't know that Dr. Dewar was in his spare time a wonderful pianist and later tympanist for the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra which he helped to found in 1976. RIP + and may you be making music with the best of them in the hereafter.

I'm so sorry to learn of his passing! He was my doctor from 1964 until I moved to Vancouver in 1987. I continued to come to Kamloops to see him until he told me I needed to find someone else, it was so hard. I miss him and Edna ( you were the one who to.d me my children had measles) I named my son James after him, and my daughter Heather because he liked the name. Edna, thank you for sharing him. He was so important as were you.

Dr. Dewar was a family friend and worked with my father, Dr. A.P. Thomas, both at the Irving Clinic and at Royal Inland Hospital. I have fond memories of the combined family vacations at the Shuswap Lake, and his patience with me as I attempted to learn how to row a boat. He was a kind and caring man to everyone that he came in contact with.

To Edna and family, We were so sorry to hear of Dr. Dewar's passing. He was such a special person and doctor. Our thoughts are with you. Sincerely, Shirley Clayton, Gina Morris and family, Damara Anderson and family.

My heartfelt condolences to the family of Dr. Dewar. Dr. Dewar was my doctor from 1983 until he retired in 1994. I had kidney failure in 1983 and he helped me get through this rough time and explained things in a caring way and let me know my options. I received a kidney transplant in 1985 at the Vancouver General. He was so happy that I regained my health due to someone's gift of life. Dr. Dewar was kind, caring, knowledgeable and always wanted the best for his patients. May he rest in peace.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

Dear Edna and family.

My deepest condolences to you all. I have such great and fond memories of Dr. Dewar and the time I worked for him as an MOA. He was a real inspiration to me (as you were too Edna) to move forward in life as a nurse. He taught me so much by just being the great person and physician he was. He showed me daily during his work day his dedication, compassion and patience for all people. He told me that it was his privilege to be able to care for other...

Edna and family, I remember with great pleasure our time together "studying" Wagner's Ring material over a small dram and then the camping in Seattle when the two of us went to the operas, while you and June looked at the water and visited the shopping areas. His leadership during the formation of the KSO was most encouraging and formed the basis for where the orchestra is today. Sorry we cant be there for we now live in New Zealand. Art and Shirley Hooper
