Hershel Junior Crews

Nov. 28, 2021

Hershel Junior Crews, 76, went to his heavenly home on Nov. 28, 2021 surrounded by his loving family.

He was born in Beaumont, Ky., the only son of Hershel William Crews and Reba (Rigsby) Crews.

Mr. Crews began his career at Froedge’s, Inc., then served the City of Crawfordsville’s Street and Sewage Departments. In 1984 he joined Dicaperl Corporation, formerly Grevco, as a maintenance welder, then maintenance manager. He retired in 2010. In October 2008 he married his best friend, Connie Flick, and she survives. He was a member of the Moose Lodge and American Legion. Mr. Crews loved working outside, spending time in the woods, and telling stories on his porch. His dry humor will be missed.

He was preceded in death by his mother; father; his beloved sisters, Lucy Hayes and Eva Bushong; sister-in-law, Barb Eaton; and brother-in-law, Clifford Eaton.
