SHARE Obituary: Kenneth Thomas Crouch

Our beloved great-grandfather, grandfather, father, brother, uncle, and cousin Kenneth Thomas Crouch passed away quietly Jan. 17, 2002 after losing his battle with cancer at the Veterans Administration Medical Center here in Salt Lake City.

Three brothers, three sisters, three children, nine grand-children and one great-grandchild survive him. his mother, father, and brother preceded him in death.

Ken lived a long and happy 75 years doing the things he wanted to do. Recently he spent his retirement mornings exercising and swimming with good friends at the Veterans Hospital pool and exercise facility. He spent most of his afternoons at the Bountiful Senior Center where he would shoot pool and play cards with other good friends.

Ken was a veteran of World War II where he spent time serving his country in the United States Navy at the end of the war.

He was a master carpenter and proud of the things he built and helped to build, from the large jobs building power plants in Wyoming and Utah to the small jobs finishing basements with his kids. He taught his children well. They learned a good hard work ethic by his example and that the job had to be done well.

Ken loved camping, fishing, hunting and tending grandchildren. He spent many wonderful summer vacations at Flaming Gorge with his family and friends.

He had great pride in his family and found great joy in seeing his grandchildren grow and prosper. A plaque on the wall in his room at the hospital said it well:

"I may not be rich and famous but I have priceless grandchildren!"

Goodbye, go in peace and rest well! We Love You.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that you make a donation in Ken's name to the: Hospice Committee Veterans Administration Medical Center, Salt Lake City, Utah 84148 or your favorite charity.

Ken's final resting place will be the Bountiful City Cemetery.
