October 1983 – 4th
"ANGUS Crawford was a friendly and popular
young man who loved spending time with his mates.
On Monday, the day after his 21st birthday, Mr Crawford was driving
with his sister Madeleine on Arkaroola Rd, about 150km north-east of
Peterborough, when his car rolled.
Mr Crawford died a short time after the accident, while his sister
was flown to the Royal Adelaide Hospital, where she remains under critical
care. News of the accident has shocked Pembroke School, where the two
attended; and its old collegians community.
Mr Crawford completed his schooling at Pembroke in 2001 and went on
to the University of South Australia's Mawson Lakes campus.
He was a member of his Year 12 staff student executive and was an
active participant in every aspect of school life.
So much did he enjoy his schooling years, he returned to Pembroke after
graduating, to help coach junior sports teams and Pedal Prix teams.
Madeleine completed school last year where she excelled in choir and
chamber singing, as well as cross country and the Pedal Prix.
It is believed Mr Crawford and his sister were driving in convoy on
Arkaroola Rd with family and friends after attending. a family function on
the weekend when the accident occurred. It is understood Angus was in the
middle of preparing celebrations for his 21st birthday party."

Angus on the bench for the first grade in 2004.
It is with great sadness that Old Collegians
farewell Angus Crawford, who played his first year with Old Collegians in
this 2004 season, in the first and second grades.
Angus was a close friend of a number of our
players, who had been to school with him at Pembroke. Rugby ranked
alongside Angus’ love of the bush, trucks (there is nothing he loved
more than backing a B-double with absolute precision! - preferably a
Kenworth), his "shortie" (short wheel base landcruiser), his
dog, his family, his mates (of both gender) and, last but not least, Pale
Angus was a member of the Stirling CFS and
interested in anything associated with the bush environment. We will
always remember Angus for his enthusiasm, his charm, his humour, his laugh
and his very, very blue eyes.
