CRAWFORD, Neil John
May 13, 1938 — January 12, 2019
Neil passed away peacefully with wife Kathy at his side after a 19-year battle with prostate cancer. His loss is felt deeply by his wife Kathy, daughter Heather, grandsons Tyler, Quinten and Parker, sister Linda (Les) Payne and brother Jim. Predeceased by son Michael and parents John and Mabel (Cox) Crawford.
Neil touched so many lives during his 34-year career in investment counselling with Royal Trust (now RBC) and made lasting friendships with colleagues and clients. In retirement, Neil loved his winter home in Sun Lakes, AZ and travelling – especially cruising with Kathy. Neil’s life was full of adventure, great friends, golf, martinis and good wine. He will be missed by many. All who knew Neil regarded him as a kind and gentle man.
Thank you to the Kelowna Hospice House where Neil was well cared for and spent his last month.
A celebration of Neil’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Prostate Cancer Canada, http://www.prostatecancer.ca or Central Okanagan Hospice Association – Hospice House, 2035 Ethel Street, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 2Z6.
