Colin William Russell Crockatt: (September 26, 1986 - August 5, 2021)
Our favourite curling club organizer, forever farmer, and witty friend Colin
passed away peacefully on August 5, 2021. Not unexpectedly, but still too
soon for those he left behind.
Colin is survived by his wife, Pam, and daughter Paige; parents, Barbara
and Russell Crockatt, Pamís parentís Marilyn & Clement Desrochers, and
Pamís siblings Tina (Cory), Joedy (Kim), Tannis (Gerald), and Cindy
(Steven), and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
He was predeceased by his grandparents Sadie and Bill Crockatt and
Dorothy and Willis Doherty.
Born at Grace General Hospital on September 26, 1986, Colin was
welcomed with joy by his parents, family and friends in Argyle. Colin grew
up on the farm west of Argyle, and attended both elementary and high
school in Warren. He enjoyed playing baseball in the summer, and playing
hockey and curling in the winter. He was a very skilled curler and was a
great ambassador for the sport. It was no surprise when he entered the
Agriculture Degree program at the University of Manitoba in hopes of one
day taking over the family farm. Colin was very involved in student life at U
of M. As a member of FASO, he was able to put his organizing and social
planning skills to good use. He met the love of his life, Pam, in University.
When Colin brought Pam home to meet family and friends in the Argyle
community everyone was pleased to see that she not only did not put up
with any of his nonsense; but also that they were a great match as she was
just as quick as he was and just as community driven. Married in 2013,
Colin and Pam made a great team, working together on the farm or
organizing community events like Ham/Turkey Bingo, quiz nights or
bonspiels at the curling rink. By his side, during the medical struggles
throughout the years Pam was always Colinís source of strength and
solace. In December of 2019, Colin & Pam welcomed their daughter Paige
Anne. Colin had always wanted a daughter and he loved Paige so much.
He was so happy to share important experiences with her; like riding in the
tractor and combine, watching Jays and Jets games, and enjoying the art
of a good nap.
With what could be considered a unique sense of humour at times, Colin
enjoyed telling tales to pull friends' legs. Like how the first ever box of Corn
Flakes, Box No. 1, was found at the Argyle Store, and thatís why there was
a film crew there that day. Or putting the Argyle sign at 67 to good use
ďMenís Support Group Wednesday Nights at the RinkĒ aka menís night
curling. Or posting kijiji ads to try and get your forever 3rd wheel a date to
the Garth Brooks concert, and making international news with it.
Colin had a big impact on everyone with whom he dealt; be it in the
community growing up, during University or while teaching an Agriculture
Diploma course at the U of M, being a part of the Marquette Co-op board,
being the icemaker at both Stonewall and Argyle curling rinks, and just
being a true member of the Argyle (and greater Interlake) farming
community. The epitome of wit with a wicked sense of humour, he loved a
good verbal spar, a good laugh, and good company. Colin was that rare
person who will be missed not just by friends and family but also by entire
Private family interment has taken place at the Argyle Cemetery. Friends
and family are welcome to a celebration of life at the family farm which will
be held on Saturday August 14, 2021 between 4-6pm. Casual dress and
please bring your own lawn chairs, no formal program it is to be ďcome and
goĒ. In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to the Argyle Curling Club
(Box 31, Argyle, MB R0C 0B0).
Allow us to introduce our Energy Division team, as well as options for ordering bulk delivery in the Elm Creek area. Check out the flyer......
