Maury McCrillis IV Official Memorial Fund

* This is the official GoFundMe campaign in memory of Maury McCrillis IV, organized by the Hastings & Prince Edward Regiment Pipe Band and authorized by his wife Elizabeth *

In loving memory of Master Corporal Maury McCrillis IV, CD.

On May 16, 2020 Maury passed away in a tragic accident. Maury leaves behind his wife Elizabeth and their unborn baby girl, his parents Maury and Lisa and sisters Courtney, Cordelia and Briana.

Funds raised will go directly to Elizabeth to be used as she sees fit to help during this terribly difficult time.

Maury was born in the US and grew up in Cape Breton. After high school he joined the Canadian Forces as a piper with 2 Nova Scotia Highlanders Regiment, later called the Cape Breton Highlanders.

On a military course in Borden, Ontario, Maury met Elizabeth, the love his life. Elizabeth, who lived in Newfoundland at the time, and Maury became inseparable. When Elizabeth accepted a teaching position at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario Maury packed his bags and moved west with Elizabeth.

His love of the bagpipes and the military brought him to the Hastings & Prince Edward Regiment where he became an integral member of The Regiment and a loved member of the pipe band. Maury was a friend, mentor and teacher to everyone within the regimental family and the band. 

Maury and Elizabeth began building their lives together in Peterborough. They purchased a house, and on May 26, 2019 were united in marriage. 

Maury was genuine, kind and always willing to help those in need. He was loved by all who knew him. We will all miss him terribly. 

On behalf of the Hastings & Prince Edward Regiment Pipe Band, I extend my sincere condolences to Elizabeth and Maury's parents Maury and Lisa. 

Thank you to all who are able to contribute to this campaign.
