WELL THIS SUCKS!!!

I was born August 14,1982 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Ronald and Barbara Crawford. From that day on I was my mother’s “angel girl.” I had one older sister, Staci, who adored me.

Life was good. Mom worked evenings and Dad was always willing to let me have my way. However, I wanted a little sister. I had her name picked out — Sarah. Obviously, the stork got my order wrong because he brought me a little brother — Kip. Over the years I came to realize the stork knew what I needed in my life and that’s what he gave me.

I have always been a talker, out-going and friendly. Mom said she heard the same thing at parent-teacher conferences for 13 years— “She is a good kid but talks too much.” My parents didn’t need to worry about me skipping school in middle or high school. I wasn’t about to miss an opportunity to socialize with my friends.

The two best things in my life are my daughters —Edee Rae (14) and Presley (10). When Edee was first born I cried because I didn’t think she looked anything like me. Well, if you know Edee, you know how wrong I was about that. Presley may not look like me but she got my personality. That girl can talk. I hope all of you will watch out for my girls in the coming years. Please share your memories of me with them and remind them their mother loved them.

Thanks to all my friends and family who have been there to help me when the road was rough. If the value of life was measured in the number of friends a person had, I would be among the richest.

I passed away Saturday, April 20, 2019. It always made me mad when people did not list the “cause of death” in an obituary. I passed away at home in my sleep from natural causes.

I am survived by my daughters, Edee Rae (14) and Presley Ann (10); mother, Barbara Stones-Crawford; sister, Staci Crawford-Brown (William), brother, Kip Crawford; nephews, Austin White, Aaron Brown; nieces, Jasmine Brown, Kaylah Brown; grandmother, Wanda

Crawford; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and countless friends. Preceded in death by father, Ronald Crawford; grandmother, Lila Stones Whipple; grandfathers, James R Crawford and James R Stones; loving friend Danny Linford.

Obituary


West Jordan, Ut-Every morning I looked at the obituaries to see if I was still alive. Today I looked and there I was – guess we all know what that means. Jami hates it when an obituary does not list the cause of death so I will tell you. I died March 14 due to lung cancer/emphysema. Just my luck, the one public official who told the truth was the Surgeon General, Cigarettes kill!!
I was born October 31, 1945 to James Robinson and Wanda Leggroan Crawford, the second of five children. I married Bess Hollingsworth (later divorced) and we had an amazing daughter, Staci. I later married Barbara Stones and we had 10 blissful years together (married 39 years). Together we had one daughter, Jami (our little diva) and one son Kip (my best friend).
I always tried to make sure that the people I liked knew it and the people I did not like knew that.
I have three wonderful grandchildren – Austin, Edee and Presley – who were my reward for no killing their parents when they were teenagers. In addition, I am survived by my mother, sisters Penny (Sylvester) Daniels, Dianne (Jerry) Parkin, sister-in-law Linda (Raymond) Lowe, my wife, children, nieces, nephews and numerous cousins. Predeceased by my father, brothers – Jimmy and Terry – mother-in-law, Lila Whipple, nephew Tony Pearson and niece Vanessa Lowe.
I had wonderful doctors during my illness – David Dienhart, Dave Griddin, Jack Ruckdeschel, and Jane MacPherson. Qualtiy Hospice was a great support. A special thanks to my nurse “Hurricane” (Katrina). We have been blessed with friends and neighbors who have supported us in so many ways. Special thanks to the Pandos who have always been there for us and Susie/Friend Piaz who went above and beyond making Sunday dinner for me and Kip almost every Sunday for the last 15 months.
I agreed to a funeral service with the stipulation that it be short. I told Barb that if it lasts longer than 30 minutes I want people to stand and walk out.
I was not much of a flower person so in lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Utah Food Bank.
Services will be held at 2 pm on Saturday March 21 at the Mountain View Memorial Mortuary, 3115 East 7800 South. (Hope you have a GPS). A viewing will be held on Friday from 6-8 pm at the mortuary as well as one hour prior to the services. Take care of my “people ducks.” A note to Kip – unicorns are real!
