GRAYSON, Dr. William (Bill) R. 2008-11-28 Dr. Grayson, age 80, of Atikokan, Ontario, passed away peacefully at Atikokan General Hospital on Tuesday, November 25, 2008. Born on November 16, 1928, he was raised and educated in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. He attended the Universities of Saskatoon and Manitoba, and received his degree in Medicine from the University of Manitoba. He began practice as a physician in Atikokan, Ontario in 1955, and formally retired in 1984. He continued a part time practice for much of his retirement, including acting as an on call physician at the Lakehead Psychiatric Hospital. He also held the position of local coroner for 30 years. He served on the Atikokan Board of Education from 1966 to 1988, many of those years as Chairman of the Board. He loved being part of the Atikokan community and dedicated his life to helping others. His outgoing personality and gentle sense of humour will be sadly missed by those who knew him. He enjoyed entertaining family and friends, travelling, reading, and spending time at the cottage on Eva Lake. Dad is survived by his wife Kathy, son John (Helen), son David (Patti), grandchildren Phil and Miranda, sister Jane (Bruce) McBride, and many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his parents Frederick and Florence and brother David. We would like to thank Dr. R. Campanaro and all the staff at the Atikokan General Hospital for the kindness, care and compassion shown him during his illness. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service for family and friends will be held at Riverview United Church in Atikokan at a later date. If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, donations to the Atikokan General Hospital Foundation would be greatly appreciated by the family. Online condolences may be made through
