Marshall CRONKHITE

CRONKHITE; Marshall Abram

October 12, 1925 – November 10, 2015


Marshall died on the dairy farm in Aldergrove that had been his lifelong home. After a stint in World War II as a rear gunner in the Air Force, Marshall attended UBC and earned a degree in Agricultural Economics. He worked for both the provincial and federal governments as a farm management specialist. Then in 1966 with a growing family, Marshall returned to farming. He believed it was “the best way to raise a family”. Marshall is survived by his wife of 55 years, Jennifer, their five children: Andrew (Kiyoko), Janet (Peter), Duncan, Brian, and David, eight grandchildren, and sister, Eunice Ellis. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Nov. 21st at 2:00 p.m. at the Kinsmen Community Centre in Aldergrove (26770 29th Ave.) In lieu of flowers, donations to First United Church Community Ministry Society (First United) would be appreciated.
