Paul Russell CROUCH

Paul Russell Crouch

April 6 1932 – Dec 31 2016

Paul peacefully passed away after a long battle with Parkinsons Disease and Dementia.

Paul is survived by his wife Karen, brothers Ralph (Carol), Barry (Judith). Predeceased by his parents Lillian and Russell, brother Bryan (Margaret) and sister Mary Lynn.

Uncle Paul will be lovingly remembered by his nieces and nephews, David, Darren, Tula, Michele, Lisa, Marnie, Robin.

Paul was a Renaissance man. He was a truly gifted artist in sculpture, painting, printmaking, as well as being a professional corporate photographer and graphic designer. He also had great skill in classic Jaguar restoration.

Paul loved kayaking, swimming, pond landscape gardening, classical guitar, antiques, folk art, socializing with family and friends. Paul was a gentle, kind, and thoughtful man with a great sense of humour.

Paul and Karen came west from Toronto for a BC holiday in 1988. They fell in love with Salt Spring and purchased a home on that trip. Good friends and neighbours followed their lead and also ended up on this great island.

Karen is extremely grateful to her Greenwoods family for the care and compassion shown to her and Paul. This will never be forgotten. Thank you to Dr. Barclay and Salt Spring Hospice.

Donations may be made in Paul’s memory to the Greenwoods Eldercare Society.
