About Toller Cranston

Toller Shalitoe Montague Cranston, CM (April 20, 1949 – January 24, 2015) was a Canadian figure skater and painter. He won the 1971–1976 Canadian national championships, the 1974 World bronze medal and the 1976 Olympic bronze medal. Despite never winning at the World Figure Skating Championships due to his poor compulsory figures, he won the small medal for free skating at the 1972 and 1974 championships. Cranston is credited by many with having brought a new level of artistry to men's figure skating.

About Death

Cranston was found dead at his residence from an apparent heart attack on the morning of January 24, 2015, aged 65. Skate Canada paid tribute to him with a moment of silence at the Canadian Figure Skating Championships in Kingston, Ontario, which were being held around the time of his death. Toller's will was found invalid and his siblings were left in control of the estate and sold more than 12,000 items from his collection.
