Obituary for Donald Eric Crawford

January 24, 1942 - May 10, 2017
Austin, Texas | Age 75


Donald (Don) Eric Crawford, born on January 24, 1942 in Buffalo, NY, passed away in Austin, TX on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at the age of 75.

A loving husband, loving father, and loyal friend, Don was the son of Sherman Barnes and Sybil Crawford. Following his graduation from Waco High School, he attended Baylor University in Waco, TX. After 32 years of service, he retired from his position as an executive with Bridgestone Firestone.

Don is survived by his wife of 30 years, Mary Crawford, and three children - Don Crawford, Jr., Debbie Trevino, and Dana Robinson. He is also survived by 11 grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Don was known for his gregarious nature, his heart of gold, and for reaching out to connect with everyone he met. Upon entering any place of business, he would immediately learn every staff member's name and refer to them by name. He had a generous spirit and always thought about what he could do to brighten someone's life. He was the "go-to" person in his neighborhood for whatever needed to be done. He will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made, in memory of Don, to the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, P.O. Box 4486, Houston, TX 77210 or to the American Heart Association.
