John Cecil Crosby, 67, born June 18, 1950, in Baxley GA to John E. and Arlene W. Crosby, passed away at his home in Mesquite NV, surrounded by his family on November 2, 2017. On September 18, 1971, he married the love of his life, Lois (Lou) Walton. Together they raised three children: Lony, Shawnee, and Ashley. John served 32 years in the US Army, 27 of those being with the 19th Special Forces Group (Airborne). After retiring from his accomplished career with the US Army, he dedicated 10 years to the University of Utah ROTC program. He loved hunting, camping, and listening to country music. He was a proud husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, and uncle. John was a friend to all who knew him and to say he will be missed is an understatement.
We honor you, John Crosby.
