And, she added, he never really had any close friends, other than her. Partly, she said, it was because he moved so often when he was growing up. But it was also because they were so close.

“We were very happy together,” she said. “He was quite happy spending his time with me.”

The end of Dr. Trojanowski’s life was difficult, Dr. Lee said. He started tripping up stairs, waking up in the middle of the night, and wandering around. After falling the day before his birthday in December, he asked to be taken to hospital, where a CT scan showed deep bruises pressing on his spinal cord.

He underwent surgery twice to remove the clots, but was left paralyzed and needed a ventilator. He started getting infections and every time an infection cleared he got infected again.

After three weeks of stasis, Dr. Trojanowski and Dr. Lee discussed his future.

“I said, ‘You’re not going to palliative care and you can’t stay here forever,'” she recalls. “‘You know you’re going to get infections, and even if you don’t, you’ll be paralyzed from the neck down.'”

Dr. Trojanowski decided he wanted to end his life support. He requested that his ventilation tube be removed.

He died two and a half hours later, Dr Lee said.

In addition to his wife, Dr. Trojanowski is survived by his brothers, John, Davis and Mark, and his sisters, Lynn Trojanowski, Annie Trojanowski and Janet Meyer.
