William E. Crawford


It is with sadness that we report the passing of William (Bill) Crawford on July 2. Bill served as co-editor of the popular Personal Tax Planning feature of the Canadian Tax Journal from 1980 to 1997, making him one of the longest-serving feature editors. A prolific writer and frequent speaker on the subject of estate and retirement planning, he contributed articles to the Canadian Tax Journal and the Foundation’s various Conference Reports over a period of 25 years. Bill also served in a leadership role on the Board of Governors of the Foundation. He leaves behind his wife, four children and numerous grandchildren. 

In lieu of flowers, donations can made to AmRef Health Africa (www.amrefcanada.org) and L'Arche (www.larche.ca), charities close to Bill's heart.
