We have the sad news to share that our dad, David Crowe, passed away peacefully this past Sunday morning, July 12th. Some of you may know this already, and some technical challenges prevented us from sending this out sooner – but we felt it was better to duplicate, rather than to miss notifying a large number of you who were important to him. We know that he was connected to a lot of communities, and while we updated his Facebook page as a memorial earlier this week, we realize this wasn’t going to reach everyone. If you’re receiving this email, it’s because you were on the very long list of friends and contacts that our dad left with us, and asked us to reach out to, before his passing.
In early June, our dad was diagnosed with cancer that was already quite advanced. Since then, his illness progressed very quickly and was greatly affecting his energy levels and comfort.
His disease moved unbelievably fast and we are still wrapping our heads around it. Although we knew there was no cure, we had no idea his time would be so short. We know that he meant so much to so many people, and the support we received from so many of you already has been touching. We are also grateful for the wonderful medical team who took such great care of him, and that we were able to be by his side the entire time.
Condolences, memories and photos may be shared on our Dad’s obituary page here: https://mhfh.com/tribute/details/31155/David-CROWE/obituary.html#tribute-start
We’re in the process of planning a small memorial service at a later date. The size of the memorial will obviously depend on gathering restrictions at that time, but our hope is to be able to offer a web stream of the service for those unable to attend.
Sorry to be communicating this news in such a way, but we wanted to update as many of his people as possible. Please take care.
Aran, Erica & Julia Crowe
