“We are all still in shock over the sudden loss,” Crowe’s business partner Wally Start said in a press release.

“He passed away with his wife Mary Jane by his side, the day after watching his son JP graduate in Vancouver. Our deepest sympathies are with his wife, his children, and the rest of his family. We will be here to help them every step of the way.”

Crowe and Start formed Angel Entertainment in 2000 and have produced projects including the feature film Big Muddy and the drama series Rabbit Fall.

Saskatoon-based Angel Entertainment purchased Media Group in 2010 and rebranded it as Bamboo Shoots.

“Bob was well respected by the film industry in both Saskatchewan, and across Canada. He has served on multiple boards including the Canadian Media Producers Association,” Start said on Facebook.

“His creative vision and passion, mixed with his financial acumen will leave a large hole to be filled at Angel Entertainment and Bamboo Shoots, but I believe we have the team who can carry on his legacy.”

A celebration of life for Crowe is expected sometime after Christmas.
