Crandall was living with Judy Foley, his methadone-addicted girlfriend. Foley's son -- also an addict -- disliked Crandall and beat him with a golf club just a week before Crandall was found dead in his trailer with the claw of a hammer stuck in his skull. Michael "Bruce" Foley testified in court that Crandall had hired a pair of thugs to "make Foley bleed" and so he retaliated with the golf club that day.

was born 1859 in Marylebone, and died July 5, 1923 in Diggle-near Saddleworth. He married MATILDA JANE CRESSEY March 23, 1882 in St. George's Church, Bloomsbury., daughter of JOSEPH CRESSEY and MARY CRESSEY .
Joseph was a Commercial Traveller, he would be called a salesman or sales executive today. At the time of his marriage he lived at 6, Great Turnstile, which is just off High Holborn in London. Although he was Jewish by birth he married at an Anglican church in Bloomsbury. George Kyezor ( a brother or uncle) was witness at the marriage.

Joseph was killed in a railway accident at Diggle in July 1923, together with Annie Storey who had been his common law wife for the previous 25 years. They had been living in Nottingham.
He probably would have left his wife Matilda in 1896 shortly after the birth of Winifred at Watford.

“The role of medicine is not limited simply to medicine.”

— Norman Bethune

Norman Bethune had a strong-willed and complex manner that inspired and irritated people at the same time. He was an intractable, audacious character in both personal and social life. His marriage to Frances Campbell Penney ended in divorce -- twice -- in large part because of his extravagant and spendthrift lifestyle. In Montréal, he loved to race around in his eye-catching yellow roadster. He took great pleasure "in shocking the timid," as he described it.

At work, Norman Bethune liked to shock his more conservative colleagues, showing up at the hospital in lumberjack shirts. He was quick to show his impatience and just as quick to challenge other doctors’ procedures. But his energy was infectious, and no one could doubt his commitment or his professional competence.

A great humanist, Norman Bethune was above all a man of action determined to work for the greater good. Social injustice sickened him. He was convinced of a direct link between illness and socio-economic conditions, and sought out concrete solutions for the social problems that arose during the Great Depression of the 1930s. He decided to leave Montréal to continue his fight for justice where he felt there was the greatest need: the Spanish Civil War. There he would join the Republicans in their fight against the fascists.

Norman Bethune was a tireless worker. In Spain, he and his team worked in the areas that saw the worst battles, labouring long hours to aid the wounded. In China, after five days of arduous travel in the mountains, he refused to rest and set to work immediately on the wounded soldiers.

He believed strongly, as his parents did, in justice and in good. He helped the most vulnerable with such great selflessness that he deserves to be remembered as a powerful example of humanitarian generosity.
