Mr. Sidney R. Crossley April 27, 1920 - December 12, 2008 88, New Ross, passed away peacefully on Friday, December 12, 2008, in South Shore Regional Hospital. Born in Edmonton, Alta., on April 16, 1920, he was the son of the late Frank and Minnie (Kennedy) Crossley. Sid retired from the RCN as a Chief Petty Officer 1st. Class after a career of over 25 years. During the second world war he served on many ships as he was one of the few fully qualified ASDIC operators. Sid also instructed in that field in Londonderry, Ireland and in Halifax, N.S. He served with distinction in Korea aboard HMCS Huron. His last commission was as the Coxswain of HMCS Terra Nova. Sid was an avid golfer. He was instrumental in the beginning of Hartlen Point Golf Club and was a long-standing member of the Avon Valley Golf Club. As a good golfer, he referred to his long, straight shots as "another mistake". Sid was the Founding Father of the Atlantic Chief and Petty Officers Association. His continued influence and input allowed the Association to become the viable organization that it is today. He was a member of the Admiral Desmond Piers Naval Association and the Centennial Legion. In his final year, Sid enjoyed living with his daughter, Shirley and her family. He loved spending time with family and in particular with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
