Queen’s remembers Stu Crawford, alumnus, supporter, and veteran

The Queen’s community is remembering Stu Crawford (Arts’51), an alumnus, veteran, and former Gaels hockey player, who died on Nov. 7 at the age of 100.

After serving in the Second World War with the RCAF, and surviving his bomber being shot down, Crawford attended Queen’s starting in 1947.

He would play for the Gaels hockey team and would go on to have a profound effect on the Queen’s hockey program and the Kingston sports scene for decades.

Earlier this year, the change room for the Gaels men’s hockey team at the Memorial Centre was named in Crawford’s honour for his contributions over more than 75 years.
