Thank you, Ted

Ted Crossley: 72 years of living, learning and loving this planet

We are all saddened by the passing of Ted. His energy, imagination and enthusiasm has been felt at the heart of Malaspina Land Conservancy Society over the past five years as he has served as a director on the board.

He spent a great deal of that time encouraging others to join MLCS, be involved in conserving the places we all love, and turn away from acts that devastate our natural world. He was a firm believer in conservation through covenant, to keep the trees and landscape the same for eternity. Last year he doubled our membership numbers by sweet-talking many in his men’s group into supporting our society.

He could be counted on to look after our display table at our local Seedy Saturday, again, trying to swell membership by his persuasive words; and to attend covenant reviews of properties and the meetings of MLCS so long as freshly baked cookies were on hand!

Every person plays their part in MLCS, and Ted definitely fulfilled his role. His family is taking this one step further by honouring his passion, by asking family and friends to donate in Ted’s memory to the work of Malaspina Land Conservancy Society: preserving the places we love.

Thanks Ted, for all you have done, and all your legacy continues to do. We miss you.
