RECOLLECTION     Feb 1/90
by Dr. Graeme Moffat, first cousin
ROBERT G Moffat, was born April 5th, 1908 in Coburg, Ontario. At a very tender age he became a stubble jumper, when his parents moved to Frobisher, Sask.

He attended school in Frobisher, and high-school in Oxbow, Sask. Graduated from the University of Manitoba, with his M.D. in 1934 and practiced in Man. until he went to Sheffield, England in 1937. Moved to Birmingham, in 1938 then to Cornwall in 1939.

In 1941 did his residency in Radiology in London and obtained his Doctor of Radiology form Cambridge University in 1942, after he returned to Canada and joined the Canadian Army Medical Corp as a Major, serving from 1942 until 1946.

In 1946 he was certified in Radiology in Canada and became Consultant Radiologist for the Province of Manitoba until 1948. From 1948-56 Bob was the Associate Director of the B.C. Cancer Institute, in Vancouver. 1956-57, he was the Radiological Director (or Doctor) West Coast Hospital, Port Alberni for Workman's Compensation Board.

In 1957 until 1962, he was an instructor in Radiology at Harvard, Medical School in Boston, Mass. Two years after entering the staff of Harvard, Bob was one of the 12 founding members, and the only Canadian, in the Society of Nuclear Medicine. [The SNM web site shows that the First Annual Meeting was held May 29th and 30th 1954, in Portland OR and confirms that Bob was a member of the founding group. Dad had the timeline slightly wrong. Rick Moffat July 2006]

From 1962-64 he was director of Cancer Services for the Province of Alberta. In 1965, Bob came back to Vancouver, and married Doris Muriel Taylor, whom he had first met at the University of Man during the '30's. After their marriage, they moved to Oakville Ont. where Bob was a practicing Radiologist until 1972.

Because of Bob's failing health, he retied in 1972 and Bob abd Doris returned to Vancouver, after times spent in and out of hospital, Bob was finally admitted to Shaughnessy Hospital, Ward B-3, in Sept. 1983.

Bob was a quiet, retiring man, with a pleasant smile, and a grin that was infectious, when he wanted you to see it.

He was well liked by staff and residents in Shaughnessy.

What we didn't know about Bob was that he was a sportsman, enjoying Golf, Curling, and Bowling.

Bob's presence will be missed, but not his memory.

Dear Janet and Elmer     Feb 2, 1990

Yesterday we attended Bob's funeral. Betty Ann and Franky went in with us and we met Doris in the lobby of the apartment. She had her niece come in from Midway as she was her only blood relative there. We met in the lobby at 2 PM and the limousine picked us up there and took us to the church.
The funeral was held in a small chapel. There was a jor with six roses, two wreaths and 3 or 4 baskets of garden flowers. We ordered garden flowers from you and Herbs to go to the chapel and Annie and ourselves sent a basket to the apartment. After the service the garden flowers were all taken to the reception room and then to her apartment. That exercise will cost you twenty dollars. The flower (sic) all looked very nice.

The pianist did not appear and when they tried to set up a tape deck they could not find an outlet to plug into. There was no heat in the place and wooden pews are not the warmest things to sit on. The only music at the service was record of Taps. About 65 people attended the funeral 6 of whom signed the register. No one thought to take the register to the reception so she has no record of who called in there. There was quite a number and sandwiches, sweets, coffee, tea and wine were served. The wine ran out and that upset Doris more than anything, that was the last straw. I would not want to do business with her today.

I made copies of the recollections for our family, thought you would be interested to read it.

Betty Ann is going skiing at Hundred Mile House this week end so Franky is going to spend it with us. I'll have a crib partner.

We had a snow storm Wed. 4 or 5 inches I say. When we got home last night the neighbor had shoveled off my driveway. Today most of it has melted but we could get some more.

I will close now. Annie did not come because Alice was still expecting her baby. Which is just as well because we fly to Phoenix Feb 12 and its nicer to visit at our leisure.

Now I will close again. Take care of yourselves and God Bless you both.

Love

Graeme.9

The Life Story of
REVERAND ALEXANDER THOMPSON MOFFAT

Reverend Alexander Thompson Moffat was born into the Christian home of Roger and Elizabeth Moffat on November 3rd, 1912 in Frobisher, Saskatchewan. He very early felt the call of God into the Ministry. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Theology at St. Andrew's College, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon in 1941. On April 28th, 1943, he was joined in marriage to Francis Williamson.

Rev. Moffat served as a minister in the United Church of Canada for 26 years, in the Saskatchewan Conference. He was very much loved by the people he served. He pastored churches in the towns of Climax, Dodsland, Tantallon, Loreburn, Creelman, Viscount, Young, Wakaw, and Dana Radar Base, all in Saskatchewan. Part of his ministry was spent serving as Chaplain with the Canadian Army of Occupation in England and Germany during World War II.

Most of his life was spent on the Saskatchewan Prairies which he loved. He returned to the University of Saskatchewan and received his Bachelor of Education degree in 1968. He served in the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires from 1970 until the time of his death. During these years, his ministry to others continued. He was always ready to help and counsel anyone in need.

He and his wife moved to Grande Prairie in January of 1979 to be near their family. His life and positive example influenced each of his children to attend either Bible College or Christian Education Training Centers. Two of his sons are in full time Pastoral Ministry; Bruce as Assistant Pastor at Evangel Assembly of Grande Prairie, and Brian as Pastor of Savanna Lighthouse Assembly in Silver Valley. The other son Dale, is heavily involved at his home church - Edmonton Gospel Temple.

o his daughter Betty-Anne Andre of Abbotsford, B.C.
o his sons:

o Bruce and his wife Karela (nee Labrentz)
o Brian and his wife Connie (nee Wohlgemuth)
o his daughter-in-law Shirley Moffat of Abbotsford
o eight grandchildren:
o Marc Andre; Jordy and Ronda; Shelly and Keri; Dawn, Darren and Angela
o his only brother, Dr. Robert Moffat and his wife Dawn of Vancouver, B.C.
