Crichton — Donald Ralph

Donald Ralph Crichton — February 6, 1919 – January 5, 2011

Don passed away peacefully in his sleep, in his home, exactly as he had wished, in Nelson BC.

Don was born in Ottawa Ontario, the youngest of four children. He was a Navigator in the RCAF during World War II. Don graduated from Queen’s University in 1947 as a mechanical engineer.

He married June Mullan in 1945. They lived in Pointe Claire, Quebec for 45 years before moving to Nelson, BC in 1996. He will be deeply missed by his loving wife June, and their five daughters, Gail (Stevie), Carolyn (Otis), Debbie (Dana), Cindy (Sal), Shelley (Norman), 12 grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

At Don’s request there will not be a funeral.

And when Thyself with shining Foot shall pass Among the Guests Star — scattered on the Grass, And in thy joyous Errand reach the Spot Where I made one-turn down an empty Glass! -Rubaiyat of Omar Khayya.
