Some Photos Of Our Departed Brother Bob Crawford

Since we announced the death of R.W.B. Bob Crawford we have received many messages from people who knew Bob and, like us, thought very highly of him.

Cecil Ashley, who used to work with Bob at the Hillcrest Lumber Company, put us onto the following video and provided us with the photos below.

This video from Shaw Daily is about the Hillcrest Lumber Co. Employees Reunion at Mesachie Lake circa 2015. It has several clips of Bob Crawford.


The following photos were provided by Cecil Ashley, who organizes the annual Hillcrest Lumber Co. Employees Reunion:
