Baker IDI Mourns the Death of Our Patron, Sir Laurence Muir

April 22, 2010

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of our dear friend Sir Laurence Muir, one of life’s true gentlemen.

Laurie’s association of over 26 years with Baker IDI Heart & Diabetes Institute was one of devotion and deep friendship.

As a Director and then Chair of the Baker Board of Management (1984-87) and as Patron of both Baker IDI and our volunteer group Friends of Baker IDI for the last 12 years, he worked tirelessly on our behalf.

The Director, Members and Chair of the Board of Management, Friends of Baker and the entire staff of Baker IDI Heart & Diabetes Institute extend our sincere condolences to Laurie’s family and friends on the loss of such a wonderful man whose life we shall celebrate and whose memories we shall cherish.


Professor Garry Jennings, AM
