CROSSEN, Derek Hayden
November 24, 1932 - March 22, 2013
Passed away at The Montreal General Hospital on Friday, March 22, 2013. Dearly beloved husband of Joan, much loved father of Cynthia Hutchison, Diana Lessard, Willa Roper and Pamela Crossen-Milz. Admired father-in-law of Marc Lessard, Gordon Roper, the late Keith Hutchison and the late Barry Milz. Dearest "Deke" to his cherished grandchildren Fiona, Alexander and Graham Hutchison, Patrick and Andrea Lessard, and Nancy, Claire and Sarah Roper. Warmly loved by his sister Jill Crossen Sargent. Brother-in- law to Alan and Sally Webster, Peter and Nevenka Webster, and Nancy and John McFadyen and uncle to many nieces and nephews. Derek's happiest times were spent with his family and many friends. His work ethic, generosity and sense of humour, along with his ability to listen and his willingness
to look for the good in each person, made him a beacon for all to look up to and follow. Memorial Service will be held at St. Matthias Church, Westmount on Wednesday, March 27 at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations
