July 4, 1947 – Sept. 19, 2013
Paul Crispin of Lac La Hache died peacefully, with family by his side, from injuries sustained in a single car accident just south of Williams Lake.
From early days Paul was strongly independent and determined, and loved to be on the move. This led to time lived in the bush, as well as his career as a truck driver and pilot car operator. He was struggling with failing health for the last few years and his determined cheerfulness earned him love and respect from family and friends.
Paul was pre-deceased by the love of his life, Marion Riley, his parents Jean-Paul and Margaret Crispin, and brothers Michael and David Crispin. Left to mourn are sisters Dona Reel (Ric Careless) and Debra Geggie (John), brothers Richard, Daniel and John Crispin; numerous nieces and nephews, Paul’s dear friends Keith Olson and Lloyd Daccke, as well as his other fine friends from Lac la Hache and beyond, who did so much to ease his last days. Paul was so grateful to all who helped over the past difficult years, and his final words expressed his concern for others.
