Sept. 9, 2010 – It is with great regret that we report the passing of John Croden, Past President of Rental Association of Canada (RAC). John passed away on September 6th, 2010. John was RAC President from 1967-1969 and American Rental Association President in 1971.

John was instrumental in forming the very first association of rental operators in Canada, the Canadian Association of Rental Operators (CARO). In 1963, an agreement was reached between CARO and the American Rental Association (ARA), and the members of CARO became members of ARA. Canada became Region 10 of ARA, and the name of the association was changed to the Rental Association of Canada. This organization still operates today, under the name Canadian Rental Association (CRA).
 
John was the dearly loved husband of Joan (Lindsay); and will be greatly missed by sons Doug and his wife Judy, Paul and his friend Laurie and Tom and his friend Anne. He was dearly loved by grandchildren Teresa and her husband Paul, Shauna and her husband Jeremy, John, Vanessa, Rebecca, Melissa, Sarah and great-grandson, Austin. John was predeceased by his son, Peter.

The family would like to offer their  eternal gratitude to the staff at peopleCare Oakcrossing, 2nd floor 'Sugar Maple', especially to Maria for her loving care, compassion and help in making John's last few weeks comfortable ones. At John's request, cremation has taken place.

A service of Celebration of Life will be held at St. Stephen's Memorial Anglican Church, 727 Southdale Rd. East on Friday, September 10, 2010 at 1:00 pm. Memorial donations may be made to the charity of your choice.
