William Edward Crews, affectionately known by all as "Billy", of Cummings, entered into rest on the morning of June 4, 2013, following a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Born April 3, 1938, a native and lifelong resident of the Cummings community of Hampton County, South Carolina, he was a son of the late G. Benjamin Crews and the late Alice Peeples Crews.

Billy was a well known and well loved part of the community and county. He had been a mechanic for more than fifty years who specialized in the rebuilding and repair of alternators and starters. It was through that love of mechanic work that he founded and operated Hampton Auto Electric. Billy also ran a wrecker service.

Mr. Crews was well loved and respected by all of his family and friends. Billy was a caring, generous, and fun loving man whose hobbies included fishing, drinking coffee, and socializing with family and friends. His death will be a great loss to all who knew him.

He is survived by his loving and faithful wife of fifty-four years, Marjorie Murdaugh Crews; two daughters, Debra Crews Freeman and husband Mike of Hampton and Patricia C. Kollar and husband Albert of Cummings; two sons, Edward Crews and wife Deborah Jean of Cummings and Bryan Crews and wife Patty of Yemassee; two sisters, Audrey C. Mosley of Hampton and Hazel C. Mole and husband Ernest of Cummings and eight grandchildren, Erin Long and husband Rett, Kayla Freeman, Valorie Crews, Colton Crews, Nikki Kollar Haulbrooks and husband Tyler, Nicco Kollar, Holly Trogdon, and Seth Beaver, and one great grandson; as well as two longtime friends, George Capers and Bill Massengale.

He was preceded in death by two brothers, Robert Crews of Walterboro and Denver Crews of Cummings.

Funeral services will be conducted 11 o'clock Thursday morning, June 6, 2013, from Deep Branch Baptist Church, Fisher Road, Cummings. The Reverend Glen Samples and The Reverend Dr. Thomas Kelly officiating. Interment will follow in the churchyard.
