Ivan R. Eastwood
Aug. 31, 1938 - Nov. 11, 2009
Dr. Ivan R. Eastwood of Bend, died Wednesday after a long illness. A memorial service will be held at First Presbyterian Church on December 5, 2009, at 3 p.m.
Dr. Eastwood was born in Summerfield, Kansas, and earned a bachelor's from the University of Kansas. He was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to attend the University of Aberdeen. He returned to the United States where he completed medical school at Johns Hopkins. After graduation, he spent time in the Public Health Service in Memphis, Tennessee, before coming to the Northwest, where he completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in gastroenterology at the University of Washington.
He moved to Bend in 1972 and joined Bend Memorial Clinic where he worked until a motor vehicle accident in 2003. He was Bend's first gastroenterologist.
His dedication to patient care and his colleagues was matched only by his unique ability to connect with people and find their "real life” stories. He also enjoyed spending time with his family, gardening and cooking.
Survivors include daughters, Dr. Katherine L. Eastwood of Seattle, and Helen L. Eastwood of Bend, and a granddaughter, Maisie L. Eastwood of Seattle. He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Lesley Flaccus Eastwood.
Memorial contributions may be made to Volunteers in Medicine or the Central Oregon Community College Nursing Program.
Niswonger-Reynolds Funeral home is honored to serve the family. 541.382.2471. Please visit and sign the online guestbook at www.niswonger-reynolds.com
