Crawford, Jr., Ralph Ernest

May 12, 1942 - June 15, 2020

On Monday, June 15, 2020, Ralph E. Crawford Jr., 78, from Plano, Texas went home to be with Jesus.

He was born on May 12, 1942 in Beaumont, Texas. After graduating from McAllen High School, Ralph entered the United States Marine Corp. After serving his country for several years, he moved back to McAllen where he eventually met the love of his life, Betty. Ralph and Betty married on December 15, 1982.

Ralph loved hunting, the hill country, and spending as much time as possible with his large extended family. Ralph never met a stranger and was the most loving and caring husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

Survivors include his wife Betty Crawford of Plano, Texas and his children Jeanene Crawford Cady, Charles Jeffery Crawford, Amy Dione Glover, Gregory Alan Crawford, and Ashley Crawford Davis, along with ten grandchildren with two more on the way, and a great-granddaughter.

Ralph will be laid to rest at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery, and a memorial service will be held later when relatives and friends can join to celebrate his wonderful life.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
