Hugh Logan Critchley of Edmonton Alberta formerly of Saskatchewan entered into the Kingdom of Heaven on January 18, 2015 following a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in January of 2015.

Hugh Critchley was born in Lumsden Saskatchewan, the third son of Frances Critchley and Helen (Pugsley) Critchley. He and his two brothers, Richard and John, cherished beautiful times together with their family in that small community before moving to Prince Albert. His older brother John died of heart failure in childhood and his oldest brother died in a tragic motor vehicle accident as a young adult when completing his Masters Degree in Engineering with Distinction in London. His parents had the opportunity to see Hugh marry and have children before their own passing. Hugh Logan joins his parents and brothers in Heaven.

In 1964 he married Kathleen Edith Mills and they celebrated their 50th anniversary on July 31, 2014. Together they had two children Richard Hugh and Shannon Kathleen. He was a devoted and dependable husband and father. His wife and children are left to mourn the sudden loss of his life. He had been an amazing source of strength and joy over the years and was defined by his loyalty and dependability. Joining them in grief are his cousins in England, Halifax, California and British Columbia.

In 1968 Hugh Logan Critchley left Saskatchewan to complete his years in Edmonton, Alberta. He was employed as a Union Representative for the Canadian Brotherhood of Railway Transport and General Workers which later became known as the Canadian Auto Workers. It was a long and rewarding career which Hugh was passionate about and it afforded him many life long friendships which were a source of great joy. He was a steadfast friend.

His mother’s Pugsley heritage allowed him to be able to be a proud member of the United Empire Loyalists.

At 2p.m. on Saturday January 24, 2015 a service will be held at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church at 11111 57 Avenue in Edmonton, Alberta. Internment to follow at Rosehill Cemetary.
