Jeffrey Cawston

Cawston, Jeffrey Lane

Jeffrey Lane Cawston, beloved son of Barry and Bess Cawston, was born in Beaverlodge, AB on January 25, 1954. He passed away peacefully on August 30, 2010 surrounded by the love of family and friends. Many people were touched by his caring heart. He will be greatly missed by his brother Douglas, brother Kevin (Ellen), nieces Lesley and Brie, nephew Ross, sister Suzanne (David), nieces Danielle and Shannon, nephew Will, loyal and loving relatives and friends.

Jeffrey was a seeker of wisdom and truth, always exploring the edge of what was possible, seeking out the best and brightest ideas and people in his quest to understand the mysteries of mind and spirit. With his great smile, he was always available to speak to others about their problems or issues. For those who truly knew him, his spirit, sincerity and truthfulness were the riches he wore in this world.

The family is grateful for the loving care given to Jeffrey by the staff of Hospice House and the faithful support of his dearest friends during his final, courageous battle with cancer.

A memorial, to be held at his father’s lakeside residence, will be announced at a future date. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish may make a donation to the charity of your choice.

I sought my soul, but my soul I could not see.

I sought my God, but God eluded me.

I sought my brother, and I found all three.

Blessed is the influence of one true, loving

human soul on another.

~ George Eliot

“Goodnight sweet prince,

and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.”
