The Guest Book is expired.
Bob was kind, strong, yet soft-spoken, with a huge heart. A man of few words, his steadfast, capable and calm presence was felt by everyone around him.
An avid outdoorsman and hunter, Bob loved being in the woods, planting, gardening, and enjoying wildlife photography. At home, Bob could often be found cooking, playing his guitar, or reading with one of his beloved dogs by his side.
As a nurse, Bob rendered care with kindness and composure that brought comfort to countless patients and families. Co-workers gravitated toward his keen wit and down-to-earth outlook.
Bob was truly devoted to those he loved and was loved by many. His memory will remain in our hearts forever. Rest peacefully, Bob.
Bob is survived by his son, Joshua Crowther; his brother, Harry T. Crowther and his wife, Susan; his sister, Nancy Patrylak and her husband, Ray; his three grandchildren, Cayenne, Trinity, and Micaela; his partner, Victoria Tyler, and her son, Hayden; his former wife, Katelyn Crowther; and many nieces and nephews.
Bob was predeceased by his parents, Harry and Hazel Crowther, and his sister, Linda Crowther.
