We regret to announce the passing of Ronald Crawford, age 84, on Monday, December 28, 2020. Born on February 5, 1936, he was the son of the late Bill and Emma Crawford.
Ron started his mechanical career in 1953, and started with the School Board in 1970. He retired after 28 years and opened up his own auto repair shop. His passion was repairing and enjoying his motorcycles. Ron loved camping every summer with his family, and going on Sunday drives in the country.
He was the loving husband of Sharon for 55 years; father of Brenda (Sham), Ontario, Donna, Cheticamp, Rhonda, Truro, Kim, Truro, and Ronnie (Elizabeth), Saskatchewan. He was loving grandfather to Geoffrey, Timothy, Abigail, Makayla, Kelechi, Andrew, Courtney (Jon), William, Shamyra, Shivani, Ethan, Breah and Elaina, also survived by great-grandchild Damon, sister Sheila (Gary), and brother Sheldon (Heather).
Besides his parents, Ron was predeceased by brother Fred and sister Jean.
Due to Covid 19 restrictions, there will be no visitation. A graveside service will be held at a later date for family. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to his family at www.jmjobesfuneralhome.com
