Alachua - Lacy Oler Crosby, age 70, passed away on November 18, 2020, at his home in Alachua, Florida. He was born on August 10, 1950, in Jacksonville, Florida to the late Lacy Champ Crosby and Ruth Anglin Crosby.
Oler was raised in Gainesville, Florida. He graduated from Gainesville High School in 1968, and Santa Fe Community College with degrees in cardiovascular technology and nursing.
