Dr. Dominic EUSTACE

November 3, 1944 ~ August 2, 2018 (age 73)

Dr. Dominic Eustace passed away in Fernie, B.C., surrounded by his loved ones, after a lengthy illness.

He is survived by his loving wife of forty-nine years, Dr. Veronica Eustace, and their seven children — Emma (Scott), Sarah (Nils), Dominique (Jeff), Chantal (Daniel), Deirdre, Fiona (Brad), and Ronan (Kim). He is also survived by his eleven grandchildren, Mac, Aislinn, Clodagh, Finn, Charlie, Brodie, Nate, Gemma, Killian, Meara and Neala, and his two beloved dogs, Chico and Peggy.

Dominic was born in Blackpool, England, and went to school in Wales, and graduated from the National University of Ireland in Galway as a physician in 1970. While at school, he met his bride and sweetheart, Veronica.

Dominic and Veronica worked as medical doctors side by side, since moving to Canada from Ireland, in the early 1970s. They first established a practice in Wolseley, Saskatchewan, then moved to Saskatoon. They arrived in British Columbia next, settling in Tsawwassen, where they worked together for the last ten years, before settling in Fernie, B.C.

Dominic was a wonderful father, a compassionate and well-loved physician, an enthusiastic golfer, a lover of jazz and blues, a spirited debater, a newshound, and a devoted husband. He touched many people over the years, through his active involvement in community. He was the Mayor of Wolseley, the President of the local Chamber of Commerce, the President of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan, and wore many other hats, including being an avid thespian. Over his lifetime, he was known to enjoy daily dog walks, he traveled to China and studied acupuncture, and even studied karate. Dominic always had time for a good debate about the news and usually carried several newspapers with him, always ready to discuss a story. He was easy to spot with his bright, red hair and sparkling blue eyes. Dominic was truly a wonderful, entertaining, thoughtful and much-adored person and he will be dearly missed.

Donations will be accepted in his name, in lieu of flowers, in support of the BC Alzheimer's Association.
