Crawford, Joe - Jacksonville  
Joe Crawford, a lifelong physician, peacefully passed away on Nov. 25, 2014. With a servant's heart, Dr. Crawford always put others first. His compassionate care and mercy for his patients was only eclipsed by his love for his Lord, his family and his friends. Dr. Crawford was born on Jan. 3, 1927, in Rolling Fork, Mississippi. At age 16, he entered college but after two years volunteered to serve in the U.S. Navy Hospital Corps. He spent his 18th birthday on a train bound for the Great Lakes boot camp in Illinois. Later he transferred to the U.S. Marines and was stationed in Guam and Taipan during World War II. After his honorable discharge, he attended Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he met his bride, Gloria Davis. After completing his residency at the Confederate Memorial Medical Center in Shreveport, Louisiana, Joe and Gloria relocated to Jacksonville where they raised their children. Dr. Crawford practiced obstetrics and gynecology in Jacksonville and Palestine for more than four decades and later was the medical director at the Skyview Hospital in Rusk for an additional 16 years. Soft-spoken but firm, Joe was the definition a true gentleman. He treated every person he met with deep respect. His dry, sharp wit caught most people off guard at first, but later set them at ease. Dr. Crawford made a significant impact on thousands of individuals and families, delivering more than 9,000 babies during his career. All who knew him or had the privilege of working with him were deeply honored by his kindness and his respect. He is predeceased by his loving wife, Gloria, and their daughter, Joanna, and his sister, Anna Crawford. He is survived by his children, Jim Crawford, of Washington, D.C.; Mary Crawford and her husband Joel Hobbs, of Austin; Christi Nelson and her husband Mark, of Tyler; Claudia Warden and her husband Paul, of Gulf Shores, Alabama, and Shane Crawford and his wife Jennie, of Granite Bay, California.

Honorary pallbearers will be his grandchildren, Stephanie Eckert, Susan Johnson, Michael Crawford, Shane Crawford, Brian Warden, Bradley Warden, Breezy Warden, Amy Carr, Alex Carr and Barrett Nelson.
