DONALD, DR. LEIGH BERTRAM - Leigh B. Donald of Fredericton passed away at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital on September 27, 2006 surrounded by his loved ones after an extended battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease). Born in Alma, P.E.I. on February 22, 1928, he was a son of the late Wallace E. and Annie (Cole) Donald. Leigh received his early schooling at Montrose, Alma, Alberton High School and his premedical at Prince of Wales College, Charlottetown, graduating in 1948. During the next five years, he worked at various occupations including teaching, farming, trucking and managing a farm produce business. In 1953, he entered Veterinary Medicine at the Ontario Veterinary College, University of Toronto, and graduated in 1958 with the degrees of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Veterinary Surgeon. After graduation, he worked for a year and a half in general practice in Sussex, N.B. In 1959 he accepted the position of Supervisor of the N.B. - P.E.I. Cattle Breeders Co-op, Fredericton, N.B. After ten years in this position, he accepted the position of Director-Contagious Diseases with the Veterinary Inspection Directorate in Fredericton, N.B. and worked there until his retirement in 1993. Over the years, Leigh was active in the Veterinary Medical Association, serving for seventeen years in various positions on council and fourteen years as Secretary of the New Brunswick Veterinary Association.
