      City doctor dedicated to pro-life movement - Cambridge Right to Life members lost a dedicated and determined friend Sunday. Dr. J. Reginald Bannister, of 1872 Earlwood Dr., Cambridge, died Sunday at Joseph Brant Hospital in Burlington, Ont. He was 65. "He's been a real forefront in the abortion issue for 15 years," said Stan Bolger, a Right to Life member. "Someone like him is irreplaceable. He's going to be really missed." Dr. Bannister was appointed to the medical staff of Cambridge Memorial Hospital in October 1974 and appointed vice-president of medical staff in January 1988. "He certainly is a person who will be missed on the board," said Don Robertson, administrator of Cambridge Memorial Hospital. "He was just a nice guy. We'll miss him." Dr. Bannister was the husband of the late Jean Whiting and father of John of Mississauga and Paul and Elizabeth of Cambridge. He is also survived by his stepmother Connie Bannister and three brothers in Ireland. Anneliese Steden, past-president of Cambridge Right to Life, said friends of Dr. Bannister are in "great shock" over his death. "I don't know how we're going to live without him." He will be missed as a friend and as a driving force behind the local pro-life organization, she said. Dr. Bannister was a founding member of Canadian Physicians for Life, an organization of doctors "who are pro-life and oppose the official stand of the medical association," Mrs. Steden said. She said Dr. Bannister has "given the last 20 years of his life in a very dedicated way." Dr. Bannister was born in Dublin, Ireland and came to Canada in 1967 from England. He settled in Mississauga and later moved to Cambridge. He was a member of St. Clement's Church. Friends will be received at the Barthel Funeral Home, 566 Queenston Rd., Cambridge today from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. A Funeral mass will be celebrated at St. Clement's Church Wednesday at 10 a.m. followed by the burial in Park Lawn Cemetery.
