Clarence H. Crawford

Clarence H. Crawford, 78, of La Grande and formerly of Elgin, died Tuesday at Grande Ronde Hospital. A funeral service at 10 a.m. Saturday at Loveland Funeral Chapel, followed by a graveside service at Grandview Cemetery.

Mr. Crawford was born July 4, 1928, near Gotham, Ark, where he grew up.

Later in life he worked with handicapped children for the State of California.

After retirement, he moved to Oregon and ranched near Lebanon and Prineville, then moved to Eastern Oregon.

Clarence loved the outdoors. He felt he was a caretaker, a protector of the land and forests. He and his wife spent summers camping, four-wheeling and enjoying nature. He has always been active in church, most recently attending the Christian Church in Elgin.

Survivors include his wife, June, of La Grande; stepchildren, Susan Gerry of Pocatello, Idaho, and Rick Gerry and family of Cove and surrounding areas; and a favorite niece, Lela Duvall of Yelma, Wash.

Memorials may be made to American Cancer Society Research, in care of Loveland Funeral Chapel, 1508 Fourth St., La Grande.
