Harold Raphael 'Ralph' Crossley

January 22, 2024


December 18, 1939 - January 22, 2024

In Loving Memory ~

A veritable dreamer and adventurer, Ralph has set sail on his final journey.

He leaves behind his wife Maria; children: Tia (Mike), Anne (Daryl), Jesse (Wennie) and honorary son, Dave (Eugenia); grandchildren: Hal (Rachael), Karey (Ayaka); great-granddaughter, Layla; brothers: Keith (Tania), Larry (Janet), and Rob; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Ralph cherished every moment with his wife. With his unwavering belief in following ones' dreams, their life together was filled with the joy and optimism of new places and new experiences.

His love for boats had become a passion at an early age, fueled by a sense of freedom that only the ocean could provide, and friends and family will always remember him sharing the stories of his boating escapades along the BC coast, as well as the many adventures he and Maria encountered while living overseas.

A Service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at Sands Funeral Chapel, 187 Trunk Road, Duncan, BC.

May the winds of eternity carry Ralph onward, with fair winds and following seas.....
