Crowell, James Edward left this earth on March 5, 2010. He was born November 18, 1923 in Canton, Texas. He came to Dallas independently at age 12 to start his entrepreneur career that would later lead to the discovery of his passion for horticulture. James started his career as a dishwasher and later started and ran numerous businesses in the Dallas area including Christian Nursing Home and Gaston Ave Florist. He lived by the motto, "Don't Quit" and even had this printed on his business cards. He married his sweetheart, Dorothy Herring Crowell, on August 26, 1946 and they were married for 40 years before Dorothy went to be with the Lord. James was known for his green thumb and his ability to bring his neighbor's dead plants back to life. He loved people, loved life and always had a story to tell you. He had many friends and never met a stranger. He was the friendly face sitting on his front porch with his birds greeting all travelers down Swiss Ave., where he had lived since 1966. He was loved and will be deeply missed. James was preceded in death by his parents, Maggie Smith and Arbe John Crowell, 5 brothers, his twin sister, and his wife, Dorothy Crowell. James is survived by his four children, Sharron Crowell Turner and husband, Gary of Sarasota, Florida, Paul Crowell and wife, Sharon of Lorena, Texas, Karen Crowell and Stan Crowell of Dallas, Texas; 6 grandchildren, Monica, Monique, Shane, Amy, Heather, Jordan and Cameron and 14 great-grandchildren. Visitation will be from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 10, 2010 at Midlothian Funeral Home and services will be held at Urban Park Assembly of God, 3700 Jim Miller Rd., Dallas, Texas at 1:00 p.m., Thursday, March 11, 2010 with Pastor Brashear officiating.
