With sadness we announce the death of Jack Crawley on November 2, 2019 with his beloved wife at his side.

Jack is survived by his wife Joyce (nee Edwards), daughter Cathy (David), sons Doug (Nancy), Rob (Patricia), Don (Darcy); granddaughters Jennifer, Emma, Sophie, and Maja; brother Ron (Lola Mae), sister Connie, and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

He was born and raised in Swan River, Manitoba, leaving to join the Navy in 1942. The friends he made in the Navy remained for a lifetime.

After serving on the Mayflower in the Atlantic and D-Day Invasion, he returned to Winnipeg where he graduated from the University of Manitoba as a professional engineer. He retired after 37 years with Winnipeg Hydro in the position of Assistant General Manager. He was very active in a number of professional organizations. He was particularly proud of his research in alternative energy resources. He volunteered for a variety of organizations such as United Way and Bronx Park Community Centre.

Jack enjoyed his outdoor activities such as sailing, hiking, canoeing, cross country skiing, golfing, and hunting. Jack and Joyce thoroughly enjoyed traveling around North America in their VW van. Their love of travel took them to many other countries.

No public service will be held. We would like to thank Ryan and others for their kind care.

So sorry Joyce to hear of Jack's passing. We have found memories of Jack. I worked with Jack at the Hydro and we both had cabins at Grand Beach and Grand Marias. Also have found memories of Jack's mother and shared numerous visits with her at her cabin. Take care of yourself. Connie and Murray McLeod.

So sorry for your loss. He was such a sweet man. I will always remember playing games at the cottage and spending time with your family. Those were some of the best summers I had. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family as you go through this difficult time. Take care
