August 16, 1967 ~ June 6, 2022
James Arnold Croves was born on August 16th, 1967, in Thunder Bay, Ontario. He worked at Cass County Electric as a line foreman for much of his life, but his true passion was for his family. He was a loving husband and father, a beloved community member, and will be remembered fondly by all who knew and cared for him. He passed away in his home on June 6th, 2022, at 54 years old. His family will carry on his legacy of kindness and compassion. He had the wisdom to learn from all people and embodied what it meant to be a good, loving person. To know James was to love him, and to love him was something to behold.
James is survived by his wife Annette Croves, née Haseleu, his two daughters Morgan Croves and Britten Croves (Adam Rice), all of Fargo, ND, his parents Walter and Trudy Croves and his brother Rob Croves, all of Thunder Bay, Ontario, and many members of his extended family.
