Rich Crawford will be missed by so many. Truly a life well lived. Loved our chats. He was a wealth of info in most all topics. Rich, a man his family and community could rely on. Our last chat we talked of his diagnosis and treatment. He just wanted to keep his promise to fish with his youngest grandson.
RIP Rich Crawford, your work here is done. I salute you.
