He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 69 years, Jean Schumacher Crawford, formerly of Ansonia, CT; sisters Roberta Johnson of Madison, CT, Ruth Doyle of Branford, CT, and Carol Brown of Block Island, RI; sons William H.

CDR Crawford graduated the United States Naval Academy in Dec 1941 (due to the attack on Pearl Harbor). William will be laid to rest on his beloved Block Island, RI.
