George Crawford, 53, of Hartville passed away September 28, 2016 after a long and courageous battle with kidney cancer. He was born March 19, 1963 and was a life-long resident of Cuyahoga Falls. He was employed as a salesman at Park Ford and owned Crawford Flooring. George had the “gift of gab” and never met a stranger. Some of George’s passions included his dedication to all Cleveland sports, golfing, riding his Harley, playing cards but most of all he loved taking long scenic rides through the country and vacationing on Hilton Head Island with his family.
George was preceded in death by his father, Cayce Crawford, sister, Cindy VanHoose; nephew, Michael Long and father-in-law, Frank Martin. He leaves behind his loving wife of 8 years, Natalie; his beautiful children, Alice and Michael; mother, Bonnie (Dennis) Atkinson; brothers, Charlie (Donna) Long and James Burgy; sister, Joy (Robert) Burner; mother-in-law, Mary (Lance) Pearce; special Aunt, Roni (Fritz) Michalk as well as countless beloved nieces, nephews, family and friends.
