July 10th, 1950 to May 2nd, 2016
Greg was predeceased by his parents George S. Blaney and Mary V. Blaney (nee Beckie) of Ottawa, Ontario, and his spouse Michelle Benjamin. Survived by his sister Anne Blaney (David Barnes); and his children Devin, Tesia (Bradley Braine), Leela, and Hallis Blaney (Erica-May Blaney); his grandchildren Owen and Shayla Braine; and his niece Avril Foster (Darcy Foster).
He graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Doctorate of Medicine in 1974, and Osteopathy from the University of Michigan in 1990. He also trained extensively in Acupuncture and Homeopathy.
Greg was a medical doctor, the owner and director of the Stillpoint Center for the Healing Arts, specializing in the treatment of pain and chronic infection, with a focus on osteopathy, Lyme disease and alternative healthcare. He was a trailblazer in his field, a champion of the use of the Marshall Protocol, and a doctor of last resort for many.
He was dynamic, charming and engaging. You couldn’t help but be pulled in. He was caring and compassionate, dedicating his life to the care of others. He enjoyed biodynamic gardening, golf, cooking, animals and travel. Well respected in his personal and professional life, loved by many. He will be missed dearly.
Flowers gratefully declined. Donations can be made in honour of Greg to the Autoimmunity Research Foundation (autoimmunityresearch.org) and International Lyme & Associated Diseases Society (ilads.org).
A private family service was held at Elk Falls Chapel May 6th 2016. A Celebration of Life will be announced at a future date.
