DYMOND, Dr. Lawrence Clayton "Clay", B.Sc., M.Sc., MD, FRCPC, FCACB
- 57, Bedford, died peacefully at home on Tuesday, March 25, 2003, after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in St. John's, NL, on October 8, 1945, he was a son of Lucy (Waddleton) and the late Henry Dymond.

After earning his B.Sc. at Memorial University, he completed his M.Sc. in clinical chemistry and MD at Dalhousie University, where he received the Dalhousie Medical Student "Silver D" Medal and the Ross Stewart Smith Fellowship. Following his internship at the Victoria General Hospital, Halifax, he spent two years in practice as a general practitioner in Grand Bank, NL. In 1974, he entered the Residency Training Program in medical biochemistry at the University of Toronto, achieving Fellowship (Royal College Physicians & Surgeons) certification in 1979. He also obtained certification with the Canadian Society of Clinical Chemists, the American Board of Pathology, and in 1984, he became a founding Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Clinical Biochemists. Dr Dymond led a distinguished career as a medical biochemist. After his first position with the Department of Health in Charlottetown, P.E.I., he accepted a position in 1980 as medical biochemist at the Victoria General Hospital, Halifax. He was then appointed as assistant director, and subsequently, Director, of Laboratory Services at Camp Hill Hospital. Following the Camp Hill Medical Centre merger, he became the consultant medical biochemist at the Halifax Infirmary, where he remained until 1997, also serving as Deputy Chief in the Department of Pathology.

Consequent to the QEII Health Sciences Centre merger, Dr. Dymond relocated to the Victoria General Hospital site in 1997, where he served until 2003 as medical biochemist with a special interest in endocrine chemistry. He was also a Consultant at Dartmouth Community Hospital, and the Cobequid Multi Services Centre. Although his professional career was spent entirely in the Atlantic provinces, Dr. Dymond was active on the national scene in several professional organizations, including the Canadian Association of Medical Biochemists (President 1987-89); Canadian Association of Pathologists (President 1990-91). He was also active in various national hospital accreditation and quality assurance activities. Closer to home, Dr. Dymond served as President of the Section of Laboratory Medicine, Nova Scotia Medical Society (1986-87), and as President of the Nova Scotia Society of Clinical Chemists (1995-2003), as well as played a significant role in organizing several national and regional scientific meetings which were held in Halifax. Dr. Dymond held the rank of Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathology, Dalhousie University. He made many valuable contributions to the academic community, particularly in the area of graduate and postgraduate teaching, and in the training of laboratory technologists.

He cared a great deal about all his students, and countless honours-level science students, graduate students and residents have benefited from his dedication and enthusiasm for teaching. Dr Dymond served as Director of the Medical Biochemistry Residency Training Program (1981-1992), and also served as Director of the General Pathology Residency Training Program (1999-2003). In 1996, he was presented an Honourary Diploma from the Nova Scotia Community College. Always interested in sports, in his youth he was an excellent athlete participating in swimming, soccer, hockey, track and field. In later years, he enjoyed curling, golf, and also coached minor hockey. In his private life, Clay will be remembered for his love, humour, and generosity towards family and friends, his avid interest in the stock market, and his unusual art collection.

He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He was predeceased by his father, Henry "Harry". He is survived by his wife, Victoria "Tory" (Stanfield); daughter, Andrea Jeanne and son, Charles Andrew, Bedford; mother, Lucy (Waddleton); sister, Jean; brothers, Harry, Derek (Maureen), Garry (Marie), St. John's, NL; brother, Jim (Barbara), Peterborough, Ont.; sister, Sandra (Colin) Tucker, Fredericton, N.B.; special cousin, Allison Pittman; uncles, Fraser (Dorothy) Dymond, St. John's, NL; Hugh (Mary) Dymond, Toronto, Ont.; mother-in-law, Jeanne Stanfield; brothers-in-law, Charles (Madonna), Craig (Joanne) Stanfield, Bedford and Halifax; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
