Dr. Fred Lord

FRED D. LORD, MD Dr. Fred Lord was a man of twinkling Irish wit and served his community of Riverside as a family physician for over 40 years until he retired in 1976. He delivered over 3,000 babies, and devoted his profession to the care of his patients. During his career he served as president of the Riverside County Medical Association, and was a founding member of the California Academy of General Practice. Dr. Lord died Monday, April 30, in Carlsbad, California. One of five children, he was born and raised in Ireland and was 98 years old. Dr. Lord earned his medical degree at The Queen's University of Belfast, Ireland, and served his medical residency at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena, California, subsequently moving to Riverside in 1941 to develop a medical practice and raise a family. Dr. Lord was predeceased by his loving wife, Mary, and his four siblings. The Lord family were long-time residents of Riverside. After the loss of his wife, Dr. Lord moved to Carlsbad, California, where he lived happily at Carlsbad by the Sea surrounded by a caring group of friends and from whom he enjoyed winning the final hand at a game of bridge or poker. He was a man filled with compassion, gentle good humor, a strong sense of fairness, and tremendous generosity. He viewed life with a calm acceptance. His wealth was not measured by money but by his love of family, large circle of friends, devoted employees, and loyal patients. Dr. Lord is survived by his loving family: Audrey Lord-Hausman (Richard Hausman), Patrick Lord (Patricia Lord), Douglas Lord, Judith Lord, and five grandchildren and eight great- grandchildren, all of whom will miss him deeply. A graveside service will be held at Olivewood Cemetery in Riverside on Monday May 7, 2012 at 11:30am where he will be laid to rest alongside his wife of over 50 years. Reception immediately following at Mission Inn. The family requests that donations in memory of their father be made to "The Elizabeth Hospice" at www.elizabethhospice.org; 1-800-797-2050.
