Atila Can
Services will be held Friday for Dr. Atila Can, the Twin Lakes surgeon who died Sunday in a fishing accident in Costa Rica.
Calling hours will be held from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m Thursday at Bissler & Sons Funeral Home in Kent. Services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at St. Patrick Church in Kent. Burial will be in Standing Rock Cemetery in Kent.
Dr. Can, 66, who had traveled to Costa Rica with a group of friends for a fishing vacation last Friday, died when the boat he was in with another fisherman and a guide capsized while attempting to enter the Caribbean Ocean on the Parismina River.
All of the men were wearing life jackets.The guide and Dr. Can's companion, a neighbor, Robert Wenrich, also of Twin Lakes, managed to swim free of the boat.
A rescue effort began immediately, but it failed to save Dr. Can, who friends say was a good swimmer.
The point where the Parismina River enters the Caribbean is considered risky.The river's strong current meets the turbulent waters of the Caribbean, which break over a sandbar, the waves often reaching 8 to 10 feet in height.
Once on the Caribbean, fishermen can enjoy its calm waters and excellent fishing.
According to Wenrich, who had fished with Dr. Can in the same location two years ago, their boat made it through the first wave, but was caught by a second that turned it, tipping it on its side. Piloting the boat, the guide tried to prepare it for a third wave, but that wave capsized the vessel.
Dr. Can was on the floor of the boat's left side, the low side. Wenrich, opposite him, rose with the boat as it overturned and was catapulted free. The boat's guide and Wenrich swam back to the boat, but the buoyancy of their life jackets and the turbulent waters, threatening their own survival, obstructed their search for Dr. Can.
By the time a rescue arrived, it was too late.
Among those fishing in another boat, but in the same group of men who had traveled to the Parismina River Lodge, was Dr. Can's son, Errol, a Kent attorney. His boat had made it through the waves and was out on the calmer ocean waters at the time of the mishap.
An able surgeon and a popular physician with an endearing personality, Dr. Can, who maintained offices in Kent and Ravenna, had practiced general and vascular surgery at Robinson Memorial Hospital for 25 years before retiring in 1992. In retirement, he had remained director of surgical education at Robinson Memorial.
He was very dedicated to his profession and to the continued improvement of medicine in Portage County and donated hundreds of hours to the planning of the new Robinson Memorial Hospital when it was built at its current location in the 1970s.
He was born July 23, 1921 in Istanbul, Turkey July 23, 1931 to Fahri and Naime Can. Following his graduation from the University of Istanbul with his degree in medicine in 1956, he did an internship at St. Joseph's Hospital in Toronto and then residencies in general surgery at Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati and Easton Hospital in Easton, Pa. This was followed by a residency in cancer surgery at Roswell Park Memorial Institute in Buffalo. He also did post graduate work in advanced anatomy at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and received his Specialty Board from the American Board of Surgery in 1963.
He was Chief of Surgical Services at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Northampton, Mass. from 1963 to 1966 and was in private practice with a group at the Redford Medical Center in Detroit until coming to the area in 1967, recruited to Robinson by the late Dr. C.C. Voorhis.
The presence of Kent State University, with its cultural opportunities and worldly outlook, and the congenial atmosphere of small town life, made the area very appealing, his wife, Jeanne, said this morning. She and Dr. Can, who married in 1961, met at the Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati during Dr. Can's residency. Mrs. Can, in those days, was on the faculty of Jewish Hospital where she had a nursing specialty. 
Though practicing surgery took most of his energies, Dr. Can was a man of many interests. He enjoyed golf, traveling and fishing and was an Ohio Master Angler.
He liked football and was an avid Ohio State fan, becoming a member of their Presidents Club, the Buckeye Club and a life member of the Alumni Club. He was also a member of the Kent State Blue and Gold Club.
He particularly enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. An accomplished chef, the dishes he would cook for dinner parties were highly regarded. He also was a prodigious reader.
His professional membership included the American College of Surgeons, the American Medical Association, the Michigan State Medical Society, Wayne County Medical Society, Roswell Park Surgical Society, Detroit Surgical Society and Detroit Cancer Center.
In addition to his wife, Jeanne I. (DeMichelis), survivors include his son, Errol; daughter, Susan Can of Denver; and sister, Gencay Gurun of Istanbul, Turkey. A brother, Tulgar Can, died previously.
