Vale Peter Crawford

Rowing Australia (RA) is saddened to hear of the passing of Peter Gerard Crawford.

Peter was a RA Board member (Director of Finance) and wonderful supporter of rowing.  He was also a volunteer at the Sydney 2000 Olympics and he took great enjoyment of being involved with the sport at all levels.

Peter was a father that was dedicated to supporting his daughters – Megan and Erin – rowing careers.   Megan was the stroke of the victorious 2002 New South Wales Women’s Youth Eight (Bicentennial Cup), and Erin represented Australia at the 2002 World University Games in the Women’s Coxed Four.

Peter passed away from cancer and was 67 years of age.  He is survived by his wife Joan, daughters Megan and Erin, and grandchildren Isaac and Finn.

Our thoughts and best wishes are with his family and close friends.
