  1. Dave and I shared many childhood memories growing up on the same street. I have many fond memories of times with Dave and spending Summer weekends at his familys farm in Albion. Daves house was always the place where we would all gather. We shared many laughs together. I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing, I will miss him dearly. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. and Mrs. Crown and Daves sister Heidi who always welcomed me into their home.

  2. Dave was a fellow employee,we worked many years together,although he went to the day shift it was always good to see him! I am deeply saddened by his passing&know everyone on night shift feels equally saddened! My most sincere condolences to the Crown Family!

  3. Dear Crown Family
    I did not know Dave personally, I know of the grief and sorrow that you and your family are feeling at this time. Recently, I lost a member of my family. Although words cannot fill the emptiness of your loss, I would like to share with you the promise found stated at John 5:28,29. ‘All those in the memorial tombs will hear his(JESUS) voice, and come out to a resurrection of life…’ May I assure you, I am not trying to give or change your religion. The pain of loss is felt, regardless of religion. May you be strengthened and comforted by friends and family during this VERY difficult time.

  4. I am very sad about Dave’s passing.
    He was a good and loyal friend of mine.
    I will never forget the farm trips we used to take. so much fun.
