Crawford, The Reverend Canon Tom
Peacefully on May the 4th in his 91st year. Lovingly remembered by his wife Nancy (nee Seed) and by his children Kathleen Walker (John), Patrick and Kevin (Keri Saley). He was the proud grandparent of Kyle, Jack, Devin, Anthony, Austin and Maya. Tom is survived by his brothers Jack (Jean) and Victor (Dorothy Anne). He is predeceased by his parents Andrew and Florence and newborn daughter Angela.
Canon Tom graduated from Trinity College Dublin. He was ordained in 1957 in St. Columb’s Cathedral, Londonderry and served as assistant curate in St Augustines Parish Church before emigrating to Canada in 1959.
Tom fell in love with Canada and her people, one in particular, the lovely Nancy Seed. They were married in Grace Church on-the-Hill in Toronto in 1964. They remained best friends in partnership, in life and ministry over the years serving parishes in the Dioceses of Niagara, Brandon, Toronto and Algoma.
”Tom was one of God’s wise and gentle lights in the world.” His hope for all of us was to Live for God’s Pleasure. A Celebration of Life will be held at All Saints Church when timing and conditions permit. In lieu of flowers, if desired, gifts may be given to All Saints Foundation or to The Leprosy Mission.

Father Tom was our parish minister at St. Columba Anglican Church in St. Catharines when I was young. I remember him well as a kind and generous man, very much loved by the congregation. My mother, Jone Wheatley, kept in touch with him throughout the years and always enjoyed their chats. We will both miss this lovely gentleman. Our sincere condolences to the family. - Cynthia Wheatley.

Hi Kevin,
I am thinking about you and your family. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your dad from Cheryl Binns. I know it has been decades since I have seen you but loosing a parent at any age is so difficult especially during these unique times. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers especially your mom. I remember how hard it was for my mom. I hope the memories you all have give you comfort during this time.
