Michael E. Crow

1954 - 2016 Michael Earl Crow, 61, of Clarksburg, Maryland, died Thursday at home following a brief illness. Born in Alexandria, Virginia on December 26, 1954, he was the son of Diana Crow of Easthampton, Massachusetts. A 1972 graduate of Wahconah Regional High School in Dalton, Michael famously made his acting debut as King Arthur in Camelot at the age of sixteen. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from North Adams State, and, following college continued his acting career on the stages of the community theaters in Williamstown, with Thorman Hulse and other talented thespians. He married his wife and close companion, Diane Phan, on June 11, 2010. In addition to his wife, he leaves five children; Alyssa, Aaron, Rachel, Rowan and Reagan; three sisters; Sherrie, Betsy and Becky; his beloved brother Tommy; four grandchildren; brothers and sisters-in-law; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins; along with dear friends Cheryl, Michele, Mark, Donna and Billy; all of whom he loved dearly. Unwaveringly committed to the safety and security of his country, Mike took great pride in his work, providing mentorship to hundreds of civilians, service men and women as a dedicated businessman, colleague and friend to those lucky enough to have worked alongside him. A lover of adventure and exploration, he enjoyed travelling the world, documenting his journeys through photography, sampling fine cuisine, and making friends of all he encountered. Ever the dedicated tour guide, Michael loved hosting friends and family while a longtime resident of Washington, DC, and San Diego, California, and endured countless trips to Disneyland at the behest of his children. Whether walking the monuments of our nation's capital, watching the sun set on the sandy shores of California, drinking Guinness in Dublin, sipping espresso in Rome, or strolling through the streets of Santa Fe, Mike enjoyed sharing the finer joys of life with those he loved. Brilliant, sharp-witted and cynical, his charm and charisma were magnetic and endearing; to know Michael was to love him. FUNERAL NOTICE: Funeral services for Michael E. Crow, 61, of Clarksburg, MD, who died May 19, 2016, will be held Monday, May 23rd at 10:00 AM at Pumphrey Funeral Home in Rockville, and presided over by the Reverend Talia Raymond, Michael's beloved niece.
