Glendon F. Crawforth
1940 - 2018
Glendon "Glen" F. Crawforth of Middleton passed away April 7, 2018. Glen was preceded in death by his parents Glen and Helen Crawforth of Parma and his daughter Valerie Hendry of Nampa. Glen is survived by his wife Beverly Crawforth of Middleton, his sister Joy and her husband Ken Cook of Caldwell, his son Brian and his wife Kelli Crawforth of Nampa and their children Shayla and Logan Crawforth, his granddaughter Kiersten and her husband Kris Erickson of Gooding and his great grandson Kiefer Erickson, his niece Julie Guyer, his nephew Michael Cook and his great-nephew Ryan Guyer, as well as several cousins.
Glen was born November 7, 1940 to Glen and Helen Crawforth of Parma Idaho. Glen grew up on a farm and help his dad with a feed grinding business. Glen graduated in 1959 from Parma High School. In 1963, Glen joined the Army and served as a M.P. He served in Germany and Italy while in the Army.
In 1966, Glen joined the Nampa Police Department as a patrolman. Glen worked his way up through the ranks to captain in 1976 and remained in that position until he retired in 1995. Glen was a great mentor and had a huge impact on those he worked with. Many have said they would walk through fire for him. When they built the new Nampa Police Station, they named the briefing room after him in his honor.
In 2000, Glen met the love of his life, Beverly Smith. Beverly was living in Las Vegas at the time. The two talked on the phone for hours before Beverly moved to Idaho. They were married March 15, 2007. The two have been inseparable since.
Glen was an avid outdoorsman. He loved to hunt, fish, shoot, and ride ATVs. Glen also loved to read, mostly history. He never quit learning something new. He was a man of few words but great wisdom. Glen was a great husband, brother, father, grandfather, friend and mentor. Bottom line, Glen was a great man and will be missed by all that knew him.
It was Glen's wishes not to have a service. The family is asking that everyone remember him in their own way.
