It is with great sadness that we share that Myles Robert Crouse passed away on September 24, 2015 at Victoria General Hospital at the age of 36. He was born on June 7, 1979 in Sechelt, BC, to Robert Barry Crouse and Susan Irene (Butler) Sweeney.
Myles spent his early years living in remote island locations. This lifestyle fostered in him a lifelong love of fishing, boating, and being active outdoors. The rest of his childhood was spent in Sointula, where he developed close friendships that remained important to him for the rest of his life. He will always be remembered for his love of a good adventure.
From early in life, Myles loved tinkering and building things. He was fortunate to be able to build these interests into a career spent tugboating, booming, and welding. His last years were spent working on the WFP booming grounds in Kelsey Bay.
Myles married his love Candace Miller in 2013 in Sayward. He is survived by Candace and their two children, Laurie (7) and Noah (4); his son Josh (9); his parents; his brothers Adam (Sue) Sweeney and Devin (Erin) Sweeney; and his sisters Rena Sweeney (John) and Laurie (Blair) Longhurst.
A celebration of life will be held at Myles’ home in Sayward at 842 Sayward Road at 4:00pm on October 2, 2015. In lieu of flowers, an account has been set up at gofundme.com to support his young family. Donations can also be mailed to C/O Box 98, Sayward BC, V0P 1R0.
