Mr. Andrew William Crozier
The unexpected death of Mr. Andrew William Crozier, Baragh House, Ballinamallard, took place at his home on February 20, 2012. Born on December 30, 1956, he was 55.
Andrew spent his childhood growing up on the family farm at Baragh.
He attended Ballinamallard Primary School and the Duke of Westminster High School and finally finished his education at Fermanagh College in Enniskillen.
Andrew was at his happiest working on the family farm, surrounded by animals, especially horses which played a major role at the Crozier farm.
He took great pride in his work and enjoyed attending the local marts and relished in the 'comings and goings' of the cattle fraternity.
Andrew had a thirst for knowledge and was an avid reader gaining great understanding in many subjects and current affairs.
He had a passion for history, and loved nothing better than to sit and talk with his elders to learn as much as he could about his own locality.
Andrew's declining health curtailed his ability to continue farming as he once had, and in the later years he enjoyed walking across the fields as he took his beloved dog 'Jimmy' for his daily stroll.
Sadly his life ended suddenly, coming as a great shock to his brother John.
His funeral took place at Magheracross Parish Church led by the Rev. Chris Matchett and the Rev. Charlie Eames.
His favourite hymns were Amazing Grace, The Lord is My Shepherd, and Safe in the Arms of Jesus.
Burial was at Sydare Cemetery.
Andrew is survived by his brother, John, Baragh, Ballinamallard.
The funeral arrangements were by Austen Stinson, W.T. Morrison, funeral directors, Darling Street. Enniskillen.
