Barclay Crozier was a great man who taught everyone around him on how to be a great man. Growing up with Nicholas and all the Crozier boys I had many great memories with Barclay and the boys up at the cabin, at his home and of course swimming in his pool. You will always be loved and remembered. I hope there are guns and endless ammo up in heaven. Your spirit will always live on through all the people you loved rest in peace love Jack Kingston
