Lawrence M. Crisp Obituary
Lawrence M. Crisp, 88, of Lorain, peacefully transitioned from this life on Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012 while under the wonderful care of New Life Hospice.
He was born on Nov. 16, 1924 in Lorain. He graduated from Clearview High School in 1942 where he was a four year letterman and set records in football, track, basketball and baseball. His love for baseball continued as he played on the all Black CIO 1104 team. He also was a Golden Gloves Boxer.
Mr. Crisp was a World War II veteran of the U.S. Army and served with the 3415th Quarter Master Truck Company in the European theater of operations. While serving he received several decorations, including three Bronze Stars, and was honorably discharged with the rank of Sergeant in 1946.
Lawrence was a member of Wesley United Methodist Church of Lorain. He retired from U.S. Steel in 1986 where he worked as a relief foreman in the Brick Department for 43 years. He also was a member of the United Steel Workers (USWA) Local 1104 and the Retired Steel Workers. He enjoyed hunting and was an avid sports fan. His favorite pastime was cooking on the grill and spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.
He leaves to cherish his memory three daughters, Constance (nee Crisp) Thomas and Angela (Alfred) Guice, both of Lorain and Charlene (Russell) Roach-Glymph, of Washington DC; 12 grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren and a host of other family members. Lawrence was preceded in death by his parents, Matthew and Lillie Mae (nee Smith) Crisp Sr.; his son, David Anthony; eight brothers and five sisters; and an infant granddaughter, Elizabeth Thomas.
