In Memoriam: Dr. Ralph Yorsh

Dr. Ralph Yorsh left peacefully in May 2020 at the age of 99. He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, and professionally he was equally committed to his work. Dr. Yorsh was known as a groundbreaker in his field, having practised dentistry upon graduation with the Royal Canadian Dental Corps. He reached the position of captain in the Canadian Army while stationed in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. Many of the UBC students who had the privilege of attending his lectures benefited greatly from his knowledge and wisdom in the field of dentistry.

Dr. Yorsh will live on in the hearts of those who knew him.
