REVICH, Stanley Joseph - January 19, 1932 - November 27, 2016. Stan passed away peacefully, with family at his bedside, on November 27th, at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. Predeceased by his wife Debby and by his parents Sam and Anne Revich. He is survived by his sister, Bernice Norman, and his children; Allan (Audrey Freidin), Warren, Carole (Eric Jensen), and Terri (Gary Edwardes). Also survived by his great-grandson Mai, and 9 grandchildren whom he adored; Noga, Dan, Matthew, Noah, Izaak, Alexander, Sam, Jake, and Olivia. He will also be missed by his little canine buddy, Tyson. Stan was born in Toronto where he attended the University of Toronto, graduating with a degree in medicine in 1956. He practiced medicine for many years, and is still remembered with fondness by his patients. After retiring from his family practice he pursued his dream of becoming an author, and wrote 7 novels, all of which were published, and several of which became part of the curricula of Jewish school systems worldwide. Until his illness eventually overcame him, Stan was very active in Toronto, Burlington, and Phoenix, Arizona; where he will be remembered as a dear friend and a serious golfer. He always kept his own score, and was not known for being shy about pointing out scoring "discrepancies". Stan was also an avid table tennis player, never giving an inch, and always beating his children and grandchildren. Even into his 80s he nearly always won - often against much younger (and equally competitive) players. He had a strong sense of justice, and was a lifelong activist for animal rights. The family would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the compassionate caregivers in the Complex Transitional Care unit of Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. A funeral will be held at Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel on Wednesday, November 30, 2016, at 11:30. Interment at Pardes Shalom Cemetery, followed by a luncheon. Shiva visits: Wednesday 501-1555 Avenue Rd. (Toronto). Thursday 3210 Settlement Court (Burlington). Friday 287 Maxwell St. (Toronto). Donations to PETA, UJA, or the Oakville Hospital Foundation.
