It was always a pleasure to speak to Mr. Crews. He would always bring a smile to my face no matter what type of day I was having. My thoughts are with his friends and family during this difficult time..

Aunt Frances and Family, I always loved how Dad (Clyde) enjoyed Uncle Max’s visits in Boutiliers Point, NS. He simply loved his brother’s company. Although it’s been years since I last saw him, I will remember Uncle Max with warmth in my heart.

Aunt Frances and Family: Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. I remember his visit with dad (Clyde) & mom and enjoyed visiting with him very much. He was a such a light.
Our condolences.

Much Love
Tom & Karen (nee: Crews) Scully
