Obituary of George Melvin Crummey
Please share a memory of George to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of a loving husband and beloved father and grandfather Melvin Crummey of Western Bay at the age of 84 years. Dad passed suddenly but peacefully away in the presence of his loving family on Sunday February 19, 2023 at the Health Sciences Centre, St Johns.
Our father was a man like no other. He was a hero, a strong support system, a hardworking and strong man who was always there for his family and family meant so much to him.
Our father was loved so dearly and brought so much happiness to the many hearts he touched. He was always kind, caring, and understanding towards people. He was a blessing and God's gift to everyone he came across and brought so much joy to us. He was a character, a man of many stories and sayings those who knew him can attest to this.
He was the perfect husband every woman would love to have beside her. He was always there for our mother, and they shared everything life could offer together. They were a great team supporting each other in every possible way as well as being there for their children. Our silent tears flow each time we remember you're gone, but your loving, caring, fatherly role and legacy will continue to warm our humble hearts. The morals and values you taught in us will continue to be a guiding light in our lives.
We will try our very best to live by the morals you’ve raised us with. We will always remember that charming smile of yours, that caring heart, and most importantly a valuable life lesson that 'family is key' and to always stay together through thick and thin, and to support, love, and respect each other. For as long as there is a memory, you will live in our hearts to stay.
Nevertheless, as painful as it gets, we are incredibly grateful to have spent our last moments with him. He was always a fighter; he fought his battle so well until he could not fight no more because it was his time to go.
Melvin is predeceased by his parents: Alma and Angus Crummey, and granddaughter: Nicole. Leaving to mourn his loving wife of 55 years, Ida; daughter: Stephanie; son: Sheldon (Susan); grandchildren: Ryan, Caleb, and Faith; sister: Vera (Gordon) Rose; neighbours that were always there for mom and dad, Selby and Olga Milley. As well as lifelong friends, Larry Hogan, Darren Rose, Dave Diamond, and Wayne Whalen.
We would like to thank the staff from North shore Central Ambulance, Carbonear General Hospital Emergency, Health Sciences Centre Emergency, and 4NB of Health Sciences Centre for taking exceptional care of dad.
Cremation has taken place and no visitation as per dad's wishes.
