Loving father and Papa
William Steven Crose, better known to friends and family as Steve, passed away on Sunday, April 12, 2009, at the age of 65.
He was born in Lafayette, Ind., on Aug. 7, 1943. Shortly after graduating high school Steve joined the military in which he served for 26 years. He retired in the fall of 1988 in Alamogordo, where he resided until 2003 when he moved to Las Cruces to be closer to his kids and grandkids.
Steve was an avid sportsman and could be found on the basketball courts, playing a round of golf or on the pitcher's mound for his son-in-law's softball teams. He loved to be in the kitchen cooking and especially loved a good barbecue. Steve was a very caring and nurturing father and loved spending time with his grandkids.

He is preceded in death by his sister Marianne South, of Lafayette.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, April 17, 2009, at Alamogordo Funeral Home Chapel with Chuck Moon officiating. A private, family inurnment will be held at a later date.
