Roy C. Giles M.D.
Roy C. Giles, M.D., known simply as Doc to many, of Ferndale, passed away at his home on May 8, 2007 at the age of 82.
Born of working class parents on May 14, 1924 in Grays, Essex, England, he was always a fighter. He served in the RAF in WWII as a Spitfire pilot, and at the end of the war battled against the British class system to become a doctor. Highly principled, ethical and motivated, he came to the USA in 1963 where he embraced the culture and participated as a true American, defending the Constitution and fighting for the liberty of the American people. He facilitated people to achieve where all else would be lost. He was a former past President of the Washington State Society of Anesthesiologists and was loved and admired by many and respected by even more.
He is survived by 5 children, 7 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and 3 sisters.
