Glendon (Spud) Crozier

It is with great sadness his family announce that Glendon "Spud" Crozier passed away peacefully on April 7, 2022 in Fredericton NB. Born in Hamilton, PEI, his parents were George and Mary (Lockhart) Crozier. He was proud of his home and his heart was always in PEI. He attended Mount Allison University and completed his Mechanical Engineering degree at Queens University. He was proud of his association with Mount Allison and never missed an opportunity to attend reunions. Survived by his daughters, Jane (Fredericton), Diane (Charlottetown) and his granddaughter, Lauren and her husband Stephane Blinn and great granddaughters Ellie and Lexi (Summerside) and Hugh (Randy) Ellis (Bathurst). Dad is also survived by his sister-in-law, Beverly Seidel (Rouses Point, NY) and many nieces and nephews. He loved being with family and was a very proud father, grandfather and uncle to all. Spud was predeceased by his wife Hulda Vivian (Huddie) Crozier. He met the love of his life during a summer job with Fraser Company in Campbellton, NB. They were a great couple, well-suited in a union that lasted 53 years until Mom’s passing in 2006. Their home was always a welcoming place for friends and relatives where they hosted many social gatherings over the years. The last in his family, he was predeceased by his brothers and sister, Wesley (Eileen) Crozier, Marjorie (Billy) Ramsay, and Wendell (Margaret) Crozier; and Huddie’s family: Harold (Isabel) Jamieson, Lloyd (Polly) Jamieson, James (Jessie) Jamieson, Florence Lyon, Bernice Hutchinson and Laine (Beverly) Jamieson. Dad was energetic, hardworking and dearly loved a project, both professional and personal. He enjoyed a challenge, always striving to find and implement the best solution. He climbed the ranks in his career as an engineer at Fraser Inc. Starting on the mill on the floor (believing that you couldn’t manage without understanding the basics) he then moved through levels of management finally retiring as VP of Engineering and Energy Conservation. He had many achievements over his career. He loved his work and valued the many friends and colleagues he met along the way. As an avid golfer he proudly achieved a couple of holes-in-one in his lifetime, one at the Edmundston Golf Club and another at Andersons Creek on PEI. He was manager of the Maritime Seniors Golf Association for several years, enjoying social and tournament events after retiring. He and Huddie also enjoyed many golfing holidays with friends in Myrtle Beach, Sarasota and The Villages. Salmon fishing trips to the Restigouche and the Miramichi were fun times for Dad and there was always a good story to tell about the one that got away! He loved and was loved. He was successful and generous. He was kind and caring. He loved a good joke and laughed the loudest at Mom’s. In joke-telling, he could never get the punch line out because he was always laughing too hard to finish. Everyone remembers his smile and the twinkle in his eye. He had a fantastic life and said so many times. We will miss him but have no regrets. He is with Mom now and we hope they are enjoying a round of golf, having a laugh, maybe a Happy Hour and a game of "pass the ace" with friends and family and of course telling and re-telling all those great stories accumulated during their amazing life together. Jane and Diane would like to extend their sincere thanks to Dolly McCoy for her friendship, support and care to both Huddie and Spud over the years and to the staff at Thomas Hall for the considerate and kind care he has received over the past two years.A Celebration of Spud's Life and interment will be held  4 p.m. Saturday July 2 at People's Cemetery Malpeque. Donations in memory of Spud may be made to Parkinson Canada or the charity of your choice. Read more

Patricia Jane Goodwin

Patricia Jane (Fisher) Goodwin ventured to gardens of unending beauty on Friday, January 22nd. She’s joining her loving husband, Cliff and parents Catherine (Weebe) and Harold Fisher. Her children, Tom (Jennifer), Charlie (Cindy) and Sally (Dave) will continue to weed the garden she left behind here along with help from Pat’s surviving sisters Betty (son Greg) and Joan and brother Randy (wife Judy and children Jacqueline and Daniel).Pat started her journey in Saint John, New Brunswick on September 5th, 1944. At the end of her toddler years the family moved to Lachine in Montreal, Quebec where she lived into the mid-1960s. For her whole life the family kept a cottage in Hamilton PEI where they could retreat to in the summer months and be near family. Pat graduated from Lachine High School and then McGill’s MacDonald College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics in 1965. After that she embarked on a career in teaching.While at Lachine High, Pat met her high school sweetheart, Cliff Goodwin. They dated through their years together at MacDonald College and got married on June 25th, 1966. Shortly after, they moved to Lennoxville in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. Cliff finished his degree at Bishop’s University and Pat taught math and science at Lennoxville High School and King’s Hall in Compton. By the end of 1969, Cliff was teaching at Bishop’s College School across the river from the University. They lived on the BCS campus when their first child, Tom was born. They planted themselves there until 1998. Pat gave birth to Charlie in 1972 and Sally in 1973. Summers were then mostly spent at their cottage they built on Lake Francis in the Laurentians. Pat focused on raising her perfect angelic children full time while always maintaining a large garden, engineering meals in the kitchen, knitting and sewing clothing from scratch and teaching her children to be creative, active, giving and self-confident. By 1979, Pat and Cliff decided that they would like to have plumbing and electricity at their summer home and sold the cottage they built and bought a farmhouse in Hamilton PEI. That same year Pat returned to teaching at BCS. She taught math and later on some computer science. They forged a strong social circle of friends in the Eastern Townships that remained strong their whole lives.In 1998, they retired to PEI where Pat kept up her garden and assisted Cliff in his golf organising. They continued an active life spending as much time as they could with their grand-children MacKenzie, Emma Jane, Calder, Olivia, Quinn, Sammy and Percy who were stretched across the country. With their new life in PEI their circle of friends naturally grew there too.Pat stuck to her guns, always knew what she wanted, loved learning, teaching, nurturing and caring. She cultivated the best life possible.A celebration for her life, will be held Saturday July 2, 2022 at 1 p.m. at Princetown United Church Malpeque.  Interment to follow in People's Cemetery Malpeque.Anyone wishing to give a donation in her name could do so by supporting a charity that touched her, the Guardians of the Children, a charity her generous and caring neighbour, Gary Rogers, is involved with. Donations can be sent at www.peigoc.ca . Pat loved growing flowers, vegetables, plants and trees. Feel free to grow some in her memory this spring.  Read more
