In Memoriam

Dr. Barry Shandling

died Oct. 1, 2016

from Dr. Erik Skarsgard, CAPS President

From an email sent to CAPS members

It is with sad hearts that we let you know that Barry Shandling passed away comfortably and peacefully on Saturday, October 1st, 2016.

"Dr Shandling" had a remarkable career that spanned 4 decades at Toronto's SickKids hospital.  He was a flawless surgeon, committed to his patients, and not without "a bit" of a sense of humor.  He was equally adored by the families he treated and the fellows he trained. 

Along with Harvey Beardmore, Barry was instrumental in the "conception" and "birth" of our beloved CAPS-- of which he is a Founding member, serving as our first Secretary Treasurer (1967-74), and our 6th President (1981-83).

Our thoughts are with Barry's wife Mary and the rest of the Shandling family.

Erik Skarsgard, MD
President, CAPS
