Richard "Rick" Crawley ’56 died December 26, 2010. He leaves behind him a large and loving circle of family and friends, who are greatly saddened by his departure, but joyful in his release from the dementia that had so diminished him. His particular blend of wisdom, kindness, honesty, compassion, and good humor will be sorely missed. He met the final challenges of his life as he met all the others: with courage, grace, and abiding faith. Crawley was a Korean War veteran (paratrooper) before he enrolled at SCU on the GI Bill. He was also as a member of the SCU Boxing team. He is survived by wife Sylvia, sons Mike, Steve, Mark, and Matt, daughters Terry, Kathleen, Elizabeth, and Mimi, sister Sally and nine grandchildren.
