Capt Scott Critch, CD
Captain Scott Critch enrolled in the Canadian Forces in December 1987 and after 23 years and 193 days of dedicated service; Scotty has decided to take off the uniform. He will remain part of the Engineer Family having secured a position within the Requirements cell of Formation Construction Engineering, CFB Halifax, and will start his second career on 18 July, 2011 as FCE’s A&E Team Leader / Project Manager.
Scotty has greatly enjoyed his past 23 years in the CF and the Engineers, whether on course in Chilliwack, or Gagetown deployed to CFS Alert, Croatia (where he survived a mine strike), Haiti, Afghanistan, UAE, and at home with the Winnipeg Flood of 1993. He is very proud to have been a part of and to have worked alongside some extraordinary people, both in and out of uniform.
Over his career, Scotty has been employed as a WFE Technician, WFE Supervisor, Contacts Inspector, Contracts Officer, Deputy Operations Officer, and most recent as the Requirements Officer for FCE, where he is counting the days to putting down roots and starting his new career. Most importantly, he is looking forward to spending time and supporting his lovely wife Sherry as she begins her new career with Health Services.
With 7 postings, his two girls Lacey and Laura had to deal with uprooting and making new friends. Scotty is now walking on cloud nine as he is able to spend more time with his family as Lacey’s been posted to Shearwater with her Fire Fighter husband Pte John Boudreau (MOC 651). Lacey is presently attending college and Laura will be attending college this fall.
A retirement luncheon is planned for 15 July 2011 at 1300 hours at the Royal Artillery Park Officer’s Mess Halifax, in the lower bar area.
For those wishing to provide stories and congratulatory messages, the point of contact for his luncheon is Capt Roland MacKinnon (Roland.MacKinnon@forces.gc.ca).
