Doug Crabbe formerly of Mattapoisett, passed away August 10, 2013 in an accident in Montreal, Canada, where he had been living for the last 30 years. He is survived by his daughter Sophia Crabbe-Field and her mother, Arlene Field of Montreal, his sister, Alicia Crabbe of Rochester, and his brother Robert Crabbe Jr. of Fairhaven. He is also survived by half-sisters Kim Taylor of New Bedford and Ann Crabbe- Barnaby of Easly, South Carolina.
Doug brought a smile to those who knew him. Witty and insightful conversation was his specialty. An artist, storyteller, writer and actor, Doug was his own art form. Nature was where he felt most at home. He returned to Mattapoisett often to shellfish, enjoy Buzzards Bay and find old friends. With his love for jazz and reggae, Doug could be found every Sunday, playing his flute and dancing to the drums at the Tam-Tams in Montreal.
A remembrance gathering will be held on Sunday September 15th at 4PM at “Art on Center”, 15 Center Street, Fairhaven, MA. All are welcome. Please bring your favorite memory or story of Doug.
