Sid was truly a great man and mentor. No matter how busy he may have been he would always take time to mentor me and others. My life is better because he took time for me.

Sid will be missed by all. He was the consummate trial lawyer and it was a pleasure to have him as an adversary. Thank you, Sid, for the memories and, of course, the fishing advice. Godspeed,Sid

met Sid in the early 1960's when the Crawford clan moved to Monroe, Wash. Being in the same class and neighbors we shared many experiences and a few girls were fought over. We saw each other after our service was done and then tried to keep in touch as best we could. but whenever we did get together it was like we just saw each other the day before, that's special! We had not gotten together for 20 years or more when visited he and Beck, as I walked to the door to meet them he hollered out my God you still got hair, and it started all over again. I will miss Sidney Malcom Crawford the third Esq. his moniker in highschool. I love you like a brother Sid but I still ain't root"n for FSU. Love Rick

I will truly miss my good and longtime friend. We reconnected (as a result of Sid's persistent efforts) more than 40 years after our time in Vietnam together and it was a great gift for us to spend some little time with Sid and Beckie. Our condolences go out to all who knew and loved him; our thoughts are with his family and many friends now and ever.

Grant: Thinking of you and your family in the loss of your Dad. I have no doubt that your memories will help get you through this. Your family is in my prayers.

Babe,
Some may think it's odd that your wife would sign your guest book, but that's okay. You always loved me and the unexpectedness I brought to our lives. You particularly loved teasing me about the first time you heard me say "superfluous" many years ago and never ceased to enjoy telling others how that made you laugh. I always had to stop and think before I said that word again. LOL. Little things that are not significant to anyone else are part of who you and I were together and are memories we will forever share. I never figured out how I earned the nickname "Poot" but it was your term of endearment, and will be forever cherished.

I loved to see you in action at trial. By the time you tried a case, you knew the file backwards and forwards. Once you read something, you never forgot it. Your memory amazed me. Many times I remember watching the jury lean in close to hear what you were saying as you captivated them with your words. It's no wonder I fell in love with your mind.

Having worked together since 1979, over the years we were together 24/7 and while others might need a break from their spouse, you never tired of being with me. I loved you for that, among many other things. We've had many wonderful memories over the last 28 years that will be forever cherished.

I know you looked down and smiled when I brought Bailey and Buddy to see you at GM on Tuesday so they could give you one last "lick" and say goodbye. They didn't understand why you were gone and kept watching the door expecting you to come home any minute. Although you always said you wanted a "real" dog and not some little 5 lb yapper, Bailey somehow stole your heart and became your Princess. She would follow you around the house every chance she got and was content to lay by your side when you were napping. I know you'll be watching as she continues to chase golf balls and jumps in the air to catch them as if they were frisbees. Mork & Mindy miss you too but as they are both more mature, I think they knew you wouldn't be coming home.

I've heard many "war" stories over the years, and never tired of listening to you tell about your many experiences in Vietnam and in the courtroom. Others were captivated as well and many encouraged you to write a book, but it never happened.

Over the last 4 years as you reconnected with some of your Vietnam brothers after 42 years, I watched your emotion come to the surface and overflow. Only someone who was there can understand what it was like, but you brought it alive through the hundreds and hundreds of emails to your brothers that I typed for you. I now have a better understanding and a new appreciation for the sacrifices made by those in the military. I also have new friends who love me because they loved you. Thank you, brothers, for accepting me because I am part of Sid's life.

Babe, I bet you're sharing stories even now and can only imagine that I have a staring role in your anecdotes. I know my brother, Tim, gave you a story all his own when he let go of that expensive fishing pole that day you told him to let go. That's just what he did, even though you didn't mean it literally, but it does make for a great story, didn't it?

My heart is broken that you are gone, but I have the assurance that I will see you again when I join you in Heaven one day. I love you Babe. Until then,Poot.

Being a Brother- in- Arms to Sidney M Crawford, I feel that every day we have had since returning home, fromVietnam, has been a gift from God. Deepest condolances to his family, and Old soldier, "stand down," Your mission has been complete. Go, Rest In Peace!

Sid will be missed. I've had the privilege of knowing Sid for over 23 years. He will always be remembered through memories of good times we had in and out of the courtroom. My prayers go out to the family for their loss.

Sid was a great man who was loved and adored by many. His memory will live on forever in the hearts of those who knew him. My condolences and prayers go out to the Crawford family. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Sid was an outstanding individual. He certainly had a way with words. He will be greatly missed by all. My heart goes out the Beckie and his children. May you find peace.
