Col. Raymond Keith Crowley
Thank you,Raymond, for your service to our country.
I am late in offering my heartfelt love and wonderful memories of Keith. We became friends in highschool. We joined the United States Army Air Corps (Later Air Force designation) together in 1940. For 75 years we visited, corresponded and in later life, after retirement, we traveled together with Louise and my wife, Alta.. We traded visits between their home in Austin and ours in Brier, Washington. as often as we could. Alta passed away in January of last year and her wondergul friend, Louise, also joined the Heavenly Throng 4 months later.
I could write a book about Keith which would be redundant as he wrote his own "Book" in the dignity and general manner in which he lived.
I have a fine photograph of Keith in his wonderful uniform he wore with such dignity. September 8, 2010 I attached a tab at the bottom stating: " Who's First and Who Stays"?
He won as he is with Jesus!

Uncle Keith was a wonderful, caring and respected man that I thought the world of. He touched the lives of all that he came in contact with. He was a person who could not say a word and gained respect. I am a better person for knowing him. Whenever we got a chance to talk I always felt I could learn something from him that would help me in life. He will be missed, but never forgotten. Donna, Sandy and Claudia if you ever need anything - I am there for you!
To Claudia and your entire family,
We are sending condolences to you for the loss of your father. I never had the opportunity to meet him, but wish I had after reading all about him. May his memory always be a blessing to you.
