James Harvey Crawford, Jr. was born November 13, 1923 in Clio, Iowa to James and Halah Crawford, Sr. He passed away January 16, 2020 surrounded by family at his home at the age of 96.

James was a Humeston Iowa High School Graduate and a founding member of Fellowship Baptist Church. He was a carpenter in his business of Jim Crawford Construction. He loved fishing, fellowship with friends and family, and most of all he loved his wife, Marie. Together they helped and assisted many individuals and families in a multitude of ways. The coffee pot was always on and the door always open at their home.

Jim is survived by his youngest son, Norman (Jenny) Crawford; four grandchildren; Lora Wicker, Robby Booth, Angela (Joe) Kopish and Mindy Jo LaHay; great-grandchildren, Nathan Hansen, Amber Booth, Megan Wicker and Brandon Wicker; great-great-grandchildren, Aubrey Booth and Paisley Wicker; and a wealth of extended family and friends.

Memorial services will be held at 11 AM Saturday, February 1, 2020 at Fellowship Baptist Church, 1503 SE 6th Street, Des Moines, Iowa. The family will greet friends one hour prior to the service at the church. James will be laid to rest next to his wife Phyllis Marie in Elm Grove Cemetery at a later date.

Memorial contributions may be directed to Fellowship Baptist Church in loving memory of James.
