William Crosser


William Joseph Sr.

William J. Crosser, Sr., 70, of Northwood, passed away suddenly on Saturday, June 8, 2013, at his home. He was born in Toledo on January 3, 1943, to Donald and Elizabeth (Miko) Crosser. Bill was a 1961 graduate of Olney High School and served our country in the U.S. Army from 1961-1964.

For over 16 years, he worked as a machine operator for Champion Spark Plug and after the plant closing returned to Toledo University where he graduated with his associate's degree in 1991. He then worked for 14 years as a courier in the transportation department for Mercy-St. Vincent Medical Center retiring in 2008. He was active in his Northwood community working for 12 years as Dog Warden, a volunteer firefighter and a coach for the Willie Mays Baseball Club. He was an avid OSU Fan and enjoyed watching anything on TV that had a ball, a puck, umpire or referee in it; but most of all adored his family especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He is survived by and will be dearly missed by his loving wife of 51 years, Carol (Good) Crosser; daughters, Paula (Ronnie) Hyder and Rebecca (Jim) Burch; son, William J. (Pamela) Crosser, Jr.; grandchildren, Mandy (Brad) Cufr, Emily (Matt) Hyder-Jasinski, Allison, Jessica and Joseph Burch, and Bryan Kahl; great-grandchildren, Toby and Ruby Cufr; sister, Patricia Belknap, and brothers, Donald R. (Joanna) Crosser and Steve (Diann) Crosser along with many dear nieces and nephews. Bill was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Terry Crosser.

The Angels came and said

The Angels came and said

It was time to go.

Don't worry Dad we will be fine.

You have cared for us well and done your best,

Now it's time for you to rest.

It broke our hearts to lose you

But you do not go alone,

'Cause a part of us goes with you

The day God called you

to His home.
