Husband and Father
Saratoga Springs, UT-Jason Bjornn Crowther, age 34, passed away on November 12, 2012. He was born on May 22, 1978 in Provo to Bruce and Cathy Crowther. He served an LDS mission to Frankfurt Germany from 2001-2003. He married his "girl" on October 17, 2003 in the Boise Idaho Temple. He is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The very first thing that attracted me to Jason was how genuine and generous he was. Always there for people. He probably would've been a rich man if he wouldn't have spent his money on everyone else. It made him so happy to buy people things. As a bachelor he loved taking groups of people out to dinner and paying the whole bill. As a dad and husband he loved buying his boys treats at the gas station. He loved bringing me home surprises. Pajama pants, purses, jackets, chocolate, gardening gloves, laundry baskets. Everything and anything. He loved it. When we found out we were having our first child and that it was a boy, Jason was so excited. Especially to name him Bjorn. Such a special name. Then we were blessed with two more boys and I don't know if there ever was a more happy, proud, daddy. Each time we found out we were having a son, he was on top of the world. They brought him more joy than anything. I asked my boys to tell me some of their favorite things about their dad. And this is their list. Playing with him, buying donuts, snuggling with him, buying treats, going to the gas station, playing catch, playing with Walker, buying iPods for us. He had a special bond with each boy. He drove Bjorn to school every day. Even though he could never leave on time and made Bjorn tardy every day, I appreciated him wanting to have that time with his son. Bjorn loved snuggling with dad on the couch and talking or playing on his iPod. He loved when Jason would tell him stories. He loved Jason and truly knew he had a cool dad. Isaac never let Jason leave without a couple hugs, 10 million "I love you's", knuckles, high fives, and still he would cry when dad left and say "I need to give dad a hug!" He would settle for calling him and telling him "I love you." He made it clear that he loved his dad. He adored him. Little Walker lit up any time he saw Jason or heard his voice. I never even tried to hold him if Jason was around because it was no use. He wanted his daddy. He would sit on the bathroom floor in the morning and watch Jason get ready. Walker melted Jasons heart. Jason sure knew how to treat a girl. He always made sure I was comfortable and had what I needed. He would rub my feet every night. He made me feel like I was the worlds greatest chef because he would take a picture of the dinners I made and send it to his friends. He always thanked me for the way I kept the house and took care of the kids. He always let me know how he felt. I loved feeling loved. Jason loved his business. He was so personable and wanted to do everything to make people happy. He had a way with people. They automatically felt connected and comfortable with him. People would share their life stories with him. I would tease him about being a therapist on the side. He had that comfy couch in his office and people felt connected to him. He loved it. I would joke with him about all his "photographer girlfriends". You all made his business what it was and I'm forever grateful. Jason loved his mom and 5 sisters. He had a special way with them. They made him into the man that he was. Sensitive, kind, loving, generous, hardworking, observant, nurturing, full of compliments, good friend, affectionate. A down right good man. He is deeply loved and will be missed more than words can say. The world will not be the same. We are grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ that teaches us that families can be forever. This earth life is a small moment. We will see him again. I know it. We will live our life to honor him and show our love to him. He was adored by many nieces and nephews who looked up to him and cherished their time with him. He is survived by his wife Amy Crowther, his 3 sons Bjorn Bruce Crowther, Isaac Neil Crowther, and Walker Jason Crowther. His mother Cathy Crowther and his five sisters Kim (Ian) Erickson, Jen (Rich) Tolman, Tonya Lloyd, Tiffany (Chad) Campbell and Kristen (Jake) McMichael. He was preceded in death by his Father Bruce Bjornn Crowther. A viewing will be held Sunday November 18, 2012 from 6:00-8:00 pm at the Harvest Hills 5th Ward Chapel. 2101 N.
