CROUCHER, Kenneth S.
- It is with deeply saddened hearts that the family of Kenneth S. announce his passing on March 20, 2002, surrounded by his loving family. Born September 30, 1946, in Burnt Islands, Nfld., Kenneth was the first-born child of Freeman and Helen (Caines) Croucher. The family later moved to Port Aux Basques. In Halifax he met and married Sylvia (Fox). Together they had a beautiful daughter, Tammy Lee, whom he cherished and deeply loved. In Tammy's eyes he was a perfect father. Tammy and her husband Arthur Kang now reside in the United States. Kenneth's siblings are Edgar (Ann), Coldbrook; Freeman (Ruby), New Glasgow; Frances Holman (Michael), Brantford, Ont.; Doreen, Sackville; Denise Butler (John), Coledale, Alta.; Janet, Sackville.

Kenneth also appreciated working with his co-workers at I.T.S. Construction. Special thanks to Dr. Doreen, nurse Barb Grant and all the staff of the chemotherapy department, 4th floor for the care given. Sincere thanks to Dr. Reheaud in the radiation department and Dr. MacIntyre and staff for their devoted time both at home and while in hospital. Also, thanks to the staff and volunteers on 7A, Palliative Care, including the volunteers who never stop giving, especially Laurie and Harley.

Kenneth will be remembered as a loving and self-giving individual who put others first. If you were one who had met Kenneth, you were privileged. If you were one who loved him, you were blessed. It was the strong faith and love he had for his Creator, Jehovah God that enabled him to cope and draw comfort in the assured promise in John 5:28, "...the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice...and come out...to a resurrection...". A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. Saturday, March 23, in Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses at the corner of Beaverbank Road and Glendale Avenue, Lower Sackville, Mr. Willard Smith presiding.

"Our Granddad was a Merchant Mariner, At a young age he went to sea, When war was declared he served his country, In the most dangerous service there would ever be. The Merchant Sailors were the bravest of them all, Heroes in many peoples eyes. So many sailed, so few returned, The death and injury rate was very high. From foreigners and manning pools, Crews were chosen for the ships, They endured the North Atlantic, German U-boats, and Limey Ships. It has only been lately our Granddad, Spoke of the time he went to war. And proudly displayed his medals, Ones we had never seen before, Of course he still had nightmares, Screaming out from troubled sleep, Reliving scenes of ships and friends, Being swallowed by the deep. It is only now he has found his peace, And made his final trip. Our Granddad was a Merchant Mariner, And of him we are very proud."
