Biographical history

Everett Crowley was born around 1908 to Jeremiah and Annie Maud Crowley, who came to Vancouver from Newfoundland. Jeremiah established Avalon Dairy and Everett eventually became president. He was active in several organizations: the Masons, the Junior Board of Trade, the Killarney Community Centre, the Vancouver South Lions Club, and the B.C. Dairy Council.

In 1961, he was elected to the Parks Board, and served as a Park Commissioner for five years.
