A most unassuming man

I was working as an R.N. at St. Vincent’s Hospital, Extended Care Unit in the late 1970’s. One of my patients was Mrs. Elsie (I think her name was) who was about one hundred years old. Every day, and I mean every day, her son, Walter, would come and visit his mother and they played chess and had a visit. Walter was a most unassuming man and although we as staff knew that he was or had been president of some other high ranking official at UBC, he never put on airs.
