Family members are mourning the loss of a retired long-time family doctor from BC.
88 year old Geoffrey Harding was stabbed to death during a home invasion in his vacation home in the Bahamas on Thursday.
Son-in-law Gregor Craigie says Harding was a beloved and well-respected doctor.
“He was a great grand dad as well, he was an obstetrician gynaecologist, but for the last ten or so years of his life he was a family doc. He practiced in New Westminster for years four days a week, and then he would take two ferries over to Nanaimo and then Gabriola Island and he practiced two days a week in Gabriola. He use to work in Chetwynd up in Northern BC, he use to work in Creston and southern BC.”
Craigie says a 43 year old Bahamian man is in custody.
