It is with great sadness that the family of George Crossman announce his passing on Friday, February 24th, 2023 at the Georges Dumont Hospital. Born in Moncton, N.B. on February 18, 1951, he was the son of the late George and Lena (Vautour) Crossman.
George was a diesel mechanic by trade, with the skills to take apart any engine and reassemble it, often better than when it was new. He loved horses and spend a great amount of time training them. George was also passionate about helping kids that struggled in school; he was a District Education Councillor and also a member of the Lions Club, where he spearheaded the development of a training program aimed at teaching trade skills to youths.
George will be lovingly remembered by his companion of 15 years, Rose Fournier; his children: Amanda, Glory-Jo, James Leonard and Michael; his sisters: Linda (George) Hayward and Nancy (Stewart) Jay; his half sister: Nicole LeGresley (Jason Simms); and half brother: Victor Vankroonenburgh (Brenda).
Besides his parents, he is pre-deceased by his sisters: Thelma Gillespie, Georgina McCavour, Audrey McKeen and Donna McKeen; half sisters: Simone Murray (Don) and Suzanne Brun (Dan); and half brother: Joseph Vienneau.
