Mr. Crowley attended Randolph High School and Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey. He spent many years with Airtron, a division of Litton Industries. He was in Sales Management for over 35 years in Madison, Wisconsin and the business district of San Francisco, California. Bill will be remembered for his sense of style and his attention to being an impeccable dresser.
Bill was a devoted father, loving grandfather, dedicated golfer and an unforgettable poker player. His passion for golf was evidenced by his winning the Crowley Cup Invitational again and again. He loved his dogs and will miss them dearly. They include Buddy, Cody, Petie and last but not least Olina.
He has stated that he "enjoyed his earthly life and journey which included nature, family, friends and loved ones." Bill wanted to thank Hospice, his doctors and caretakers which included his children, his sister and his 4 brothers for their loving care. Bill often remarked his goal in life was to be the man his dogs thought he was!
"Some people come into our lives and quickly go while others stay awhile and make footprints on our hearts and we are never the same."
