Rick Crosby
Feb 02, 1948 – Feb 23, 2020
Brewster Sightseeing driver Rick Crosby has a story for every stop on his tours.
At Deer Lodge, where the tour stops, Rick’s roots run deep. His grandparents founded the lodge in 1923 and Rick spent much of his youth working here with his family, doing everything from bus boy to pot washer, and exploring all the nearby peaks as a climber and skier.
“Really, I was there to climb mountains,” he says of his youth.
Rick was born in Banff to a predominate local family. His grandmother Gertrude Crosby founded the lodge in 1923, growing it from a tea house to a sprawling complex that once included a gas station, drugstore, café and garage. His grandfather Lou Crosby was a legendary Banff figure who ran Brewster Travel for many decades. “I’ve climbed ’em all,
fallen off some and skied most,” he says of the alpine peaks around Lake Louise.
A true “Banffite” (or is it “Banffonian”?), his stories are rich with personal memories. Exploring the heart of the Canadian Rockies with him is enriching and entertaining in a personal way.
For Rick, driving and welcoming visitors to the Canadian Rockies is the culmination of a life well lived here. He loves to travel during the winter, but he says the times he has spent at Lake Louise remain his favourite.
“I like interacting with people, especially here,” he says. “I have always loved Lake Louise.”
Funeral arrangements will be announced by the family in Spring 2020

Sympathies message

  1. Sorry I just found this on line Obituaries. My name is Greg West, in 1966 I lived 2 doors down from Rick on CFB Rockcliffe outside Ottawa. My family had just moved backed to Canada from Florida. I was eager to re-learn how to ski and the Crosby family took me under their wing to help. This included many fine weekend skiing days at Camp Fortune in Quebec plus a long trip to Stowe Vermont. Rick was one of the best Skiers I’ve ever skied with and he taught me a lot. We were both around 17 years old at the time and did a lot together in and out of trouble. Because of his natural ability to teach skiing I’m still considered an expert skier spending most of my mountain time on Mt Hood in Oregon. I’m sorry I never got the chance to visit him in Banff but will always remember him.
