Francis Erwin McCrae
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Francis Erwin McCrae. Francis was born in Gladstone Manitoba on April 18, 1928 and died surrounded by his loving family on November 30, 2013 at Moog and Friends Hospice House, Penticton. Francis was predeceased by his beloved wife, Cora, in 2003, by his brother, Kenneth, in 2004 and sister, Margaret, in 2007. Francis is survived by his only child, son, Douglas (Laureen) McCrae and his two cherished granddaughters, Shaina (Ryan) McGiverin and Tannis (Sheldon) Kassam. He also leaves two precious great-granddaughters, Peyton and Madison McGiverin. Also mourning his passing is his brother, Newton McCrae of Spokane Washington and numerous nephews and nieces who have lost a special uncle. In addition the staff and friends at Athens Creek Retirement Lodge will miss his jokes and stories as will the people in the area whom he saw on his daily walks. A special thank you to Jill at Athens Creek Retirement Lodge and Laurie at Canterbury Court in Vernon for all the talks over coffee. In lieu of flowers, those wishing, may make a donation to Moog and Friends Hospice House or to the Canadian Cancer Society. Condolences may be sent to the family through providencefuneralhomes.com.
