Passed peacefully away at the Moncton City Hospital on Monday, February 12, 2018, Dr. James D. Crowley, OB/GYN. Born February 14, 1941 in Cork, Southern Ireland.

Upon graduation Jim moved to Canada where he established a long and successful medical practice in obstetrics and gynecology. He delivered hundreds of babies and helped countless women during his medical career, never forgetting a patient's name, condition, or the babies he brought safely into the world. Jim loved to travel, read, and watch his Saturday soccer matches with Manchester United, but most of all he loved being with his family and especially with his wife, Joyce, of 38 years.
