L.C. was born in Vinson, OK, February 7, 1927, to Luther and Mary Craven. He attended schools in Wellington, TX and Samnorwood, TX.

He retired from Coy Transportation where he worked as a freight salesman.

He enjoyed flying single-engine Cessnas, and he was a western swing music lover extraordinaire. But his greatest love was his family. He was a wonderful dad and Papa and will be greatly missed.

He was preceded in death by his parents, five brothers, two sisters and his beloved son Mike.

L.C. is survived by his loving wife, Jeannetta, of 70 years; sons Rafael and wife Judy of Amarillo, and Doug and wife Holly of Livingston; daughter-in-law Toni Craven of Amarillo; grandchildren Lyndie Craven, Anna Lancaster, Rafael Craven, Pam Craven and numerous great-grandchildren.
