R. C. (Reuben) Crawford died at Lake Shore Hospital, Lake City, Fla., at 5:30 A.M., November 11, from injuries received in an automobile accident near Trenton, Fla., November 10. Brother Crawford, with his wife Vannah Mae, was en route to Trenton to attend a meeting when the left rear tire on the car Brother Crawford was driving blew out, and the car turned over throwing both out of the car. Brother Crawford sustained a fractured skull and failed to regain consciousness. Sister Crawford was painfully injured and admitted to the same hospital. Brother Crawford was the son of the late William Crawford of Lake Butler. He was born December 21, 1879, near Lake Butler and has been a minister of the gospel for about fifty years. He has preached in various parts of the United States and Canada. He has baptized thousands. He was loved by everyone that knew him. Although he ran a store and farmed for some time, he did this as a side line and put his preaching first. He had a nice personality and seemed to be contented with the things he had and with a very bright outlook on life. The funeral was held at Mid Way church of Christ near Lake Butler with burial in the church cemetery. Survivors in addition to his widow include two daughters, Mrs. J. M. Gunn, Tallahassee, Fla., and Mrs. Marie E. Klein, Ocala, Fla. Three sons, Fred C., Ocala, Fla., H. C., Clearwater, and Leon C., Tallahassee, Fla.; one brother Calvin of Winter Gardens and sixteen grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren. --M. J. F. Steen.
