Elliott McCAUGHEY
By Cyril DABYDEEN, page A20
Doctor, cancer researcher, husband, father. Born May 21, 1927, in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Died May 26, in Ottawa, of Parkinson's disease, aged 76.
He could have been a lawyer, he said: but combatting diseases became his lifelong discipline, until Dr. Elliott McCAUGHEY succumbed to Parkinson's. Grace, charm, and commitment to work characterized his life, in his uniquely Anglo-Irish way. But it was in Canada that he perhaps made his greatest contribution: In Ottawa, he was chief of laboratory medicine at the Civic Hospital and clinical professor of pathology at the University of Ottawa in a 14-year period; he also served as director of the Canadian Tumour Reference Centre.
"Everyone loved him," said staff at St. Vincent's Hospital in Ottawa, where Dr. McCAUGHEY spent his last years as a patient. His elegant use of the English language and wry humour made him "endearing and special," said Dr. John KAUFMANN, retired neuro-pathologist at the University of Western Ontario. "Elliott's particular use of the intransitive verb," added Dr. KAUFMANN, "was integral to his style, and with his logical mind he was always pleasant to listen to."
Dr. McCAUGHEY held many memberships in professional bodies in Britain and North America. His more-than-100 scholarly publications enhanced his reputation. And he was one of the first to make the link between asbestos and cancer, appearing often in U.S. courtrooms as an expert witness on this subject.
The McCAUGHEYs lived for generations in Belfast and Ballymena, as far back as c.1000, having descended from the High Kings of Ireland, according to lore. Elliott's father, William, was a senior civil servant of the Northern Ireland Government; his uncle Tom ELLIOT/ELLIOTT died in the Battle of the Somme in First World War.
After graduating from Queen's University, Belfast, Elliott McCAUGHEY worked at the Royal Victoria Hospital, where he met nurse Amy Kathleen PAUL from Kilrea, who became his bride; he then taught at Queen's University, Belfast. But his intellectual energies propelled him farther afield. in 1958, he came to Canada as assistant director of pathology, General Hospital, Saint John's, Newfoundland. In 1959, he worked for the famed Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
Returning to Ireland, he headed the department of pathology at Dublin's prestigious Trinity College, serving from 1964 to 1972. During this time he spent six months as part of a medical research team in Nagpur, India, under the World Health Organization.
But patterns of disease in human populations and finding cures for diseases pre-occupied him. He moved back to Canada, to the University of Western Ontario, where he was most productive here he also formed some of his lasting Friendships. Then, in 1976 he came to Ottawa to continue his illustrious career. He retired after being struck by Parkinson's in 1994; around this same time his wife Amy suffered a stroke.
Dr. McCAUGHEY was well-known for his generosity. He also read widely: scientific material, politics, economics, belles-lettres. He regularly visited the National Gallery, and was an ardent listener to the short-wave radio, the British Broadcasting Corporation mainly. A whisky connoisseur he was; and he golfed in Ireland and elsewhere while travelling to conferences.
In the final months, as his mind teetered and his tremors increased because of Parkinson's, he flitted back and forth to familiar Belfast and Dublin, and to former colleagues at Queen's and Trinity: Images interspersed with life in Canada, his family especially, all in his ubiquitous consciousness. With his wife Amy and daughters by his side, Dr. McCAUGHEY showed immense courage to the end. He left behind his wife, and children Paul, Claire and Gail and five grandchildren.
Cyril is son-in-law to Elliott McCAUGHEY.

-In loving memory of my husband Pete McCAULEY who passed away April 15, 1969.
There is a bridge of memories
From here to heaven above
That keeps you very close to me
It's called a bridge of love.
As time goes on without you
And days turn into years
They hold a million memories
And a thousand silent tears.
-Always remembered, Jean

McCAULEY, Jack Clark (December 21, 1922 - November 11, 2003.)
After a full and cherished life, Jack McCAULEY died peacefully on Remembrance Day in his 80th year. For 46 years, he was the deeply loved husband of Joan. Jack was the dearly loved father, father-in-law, and grandfather of: Lyn and her children Carmen, Lisa and Sarah; Laurel and her husband Guy PRITCHARD; Patrick and Justine SEGAL and his children Roxanne, Ryan, and Jasmine John; Brian; and Gordon and his wife Catherine and their children Peter, Heather and Jay. His many, many Friends and relatives were very important members of Jack's life.
After graduation from Etobicoke Collegiate and the University of Western Ontario (Kappa Alpha '49), and honourable service to his country as a Lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Navy, Jack enjoyed much success in business through leadership roles with prominent marketing and sales organizations.
More important, however, was the pleasure he ultimately found in his family, and coaching and counseling others. Jack came to appreciate that the essence of community service was the enormous inspiration he received from the simple act of helping others.
Jack left life as he lived it, the source of wisdom and counsel to many, with a warm smile and handshake to all, and always with a funny story to pass along.
In celebration of his life, Jack's family invite all with a happy memory to join them at a reception at St. George's Golf and Country Club, 1668 Islington Avenue, on Monday, November 17, 2003 from 5: 00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully suggests donations to your favourite charity, and that you be certain today to cherish those you love.
