In Memoriam; Dr. Byrnne Rothwell
The Saskatchewan Horse Federation wouldlike to extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Dr. Byrnne Rothwell. Dr. Rothwell passed away on January 28, 2014 at the age of 77. The equine and veterinary community along with the whole livestock sector has lost an invaluable advocate in Dr. Rothwell. An active stockman and horseman all his life, he loved riding and driving, light and heavy horses.
Dr. Byrnne held a distinguished career which saw him named Canadian Veterinarian of the Year amongst over 20 major honours from the dozens of organizations with which he held positions. Byrnne loved people more than prestige and was always a reluctant recipient of praise, but was also pleased that he could “make a difference.” A thoughtful and intelligent man, “Doc” also published numerous scientific and informative articles and was highly sought after for advice from governments and non-profit organizations alike.
In 2000, Dr. Rothwell was named Saskatchewan Veterinarian of the Year. In 2011, he was awarded the Equine Welfare Leadership Award of Distinction from The Farm Animal Council of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Horse Federation for integrating animal welfare into his core business strategy and setting the bar higher for expectations regarding animal welfare.
Dr. Rothwell’s role with the Saskatchewan Horse Federation was instrumental. He was a leader in preparing the disease alerts and health recommendations, always striving for the highest standards in the Equine Health and Welfare sector. A true gentleman, friend and mentor; he will truly be missed and always remembered.
As per Dr. Rothwell's request there will be no service at this time. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of tributes, donations may be made in memory of Dr. Rothwell to either the Provincial 4-H Foundation or to the Shellbrook and District Health Services Project.
To offer condolences to the Rothwell family, or to share memories and photos, please visit Beau 'Lac' Funeral Home.
