McAULEY, James Patrick, MD, FRCSC - Passed away at home surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, December 28th, 2017, after a heroic and dignified battle against a brain tumour. Adoring husband to his wife Diane of 36 years. Loving father to Erin (Mark) and Alexander (Lauren). Proud grandfather of Patrick and Sebastian. Cherished friend of his patients and colleagues throughout the world. Jim was a singularly talented and dedicated Orthopaedic surgeon who approached the care of his patients with the same love and kindness with which he treated all those he came across. Beyond being a world class surgeon, his family was everything to him and he never let them forget it. A true gentleman in the purest sense of the word, and a devout Catholic, he embodied the virtues of compassion and gentleness. May he rest in the peace he so richly deserves. A Visitation will be held at the WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL , 709 Wonderland Road North, London on Tuesday, January 2, 2018 from 2:00-4:00 and 6:00-9:00 p.m. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at ST. GEORGE PARISH , 1164 Commissioners Road West, London on Wednesday, January 3, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. Cremation and Interment will follow at a later date.

To Diane, children and his family,

Gayle and I will always remember Jiim as a life changer for me with his talents and compassion for patients. I still have the hip from 1994. Barrhaven was never the same when you left. Sincere condolences.

It has been a wonderful experience to share patient care with Jim. His patients, residents and students all appreciated his ability as a surgeon and ability to connect with people. He will be greatly missed by all of us.

Saddened to read of the passing of Dr. McAuley. I certainly appreciated the benefits of his surgical skills and enjoyed our occasional conversations during clinical visits.
