Dr. Alvin Ralph Spector

Alvin was a kind and gentle man with a wonderful sense of humor, inquisitive mind, and a strong love and commitment to his immediate and extended family.
He was born in Saskatchewan and later moved to Toronto and then Los Angeles. He was a successful anesthesiologist who took great care of thousands of patients who loved his jokes and easy bedside manner. He retired to Palm Desert where he spent the remainder of his life.
He will rest eternally at Mount Sinai Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills and is survived by his sons Larry, Howard (Janet), Gordon (Debra), Stuart (Yael), and six grandchildren.
