Robert “Bob” Lee Crawford

July 08, 1941 ~ April 29, 2020

Robert “Bob” Lee Crawford, 78, loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, and dear friend, passed away on Wednesday, April 29, 2020, at the VNA Hospice House in Vero Beach, Florida.

Bob was predeceased by his parents, Lawrence and Evelyn Crawford.  He is survived by his children, daughter Jackie (Todd) Parker and son, Robbie (Frances) Crawford, his former spouse Maria Crawford,

five cherished grandchildren who were the light of his life:  Steven, Emily, Chase, Aiden, and Mason.  Another constant was his six siblings: Don (Gerry), Ken (Roseanne), Dennis (Gloria), Tracy, Stan, and Phyllis (Peter) Duque.

He had several nieces and nephews with whom he had a special bond:  Gary, Chris, Eric, Marc, Jennifer, Dan, Michelle, Kelsey, Elisa, and Andre; several great nieces and nephews and many dear friends.

Bob was well known and active in the X-ray community.  He worked as a radiologic technologist for over forty years.  He began his career in Miami, Florida, before moving to Vero Beach to assume the position of Chief X-ray Technician at Indian River Memorial Hospital.

He also served on the Advisory Board at Indian River Community College when they started their Radiography Program.  He later started and owned Southeastern Micrographics, a microfilming company.  He subsequently returned to x-ray in the late 90’s.

He enjoyed umpiring Little League baseball for many years and was an enthusiastic Vero Beach Fighting Indians fan; rarely missing a game.  He was also an avid fan of Miami Hurricanes football, volunteering his services as their team x-ray tech for all home games.

More than anything, Bob enjoyed being around his family and friends and giving of his time to anyone who needed it.  His big smile and generous nature will be dearly missed.

Memorial contributions may be made in his honor to the VNA Hospice House in Vero Beach.

The heavans has just gained a remarlable so name Bob! Cant imagine how happy he is at the moment for he was always walking around with a smile! Always willing to lend a hand or help out in anyway and all you had to do was listen to his funny jokes which were sometime corny and sometimes funny! We will miss Bob dearly for he was a kind soul we loved very much! Bob may go in peace and be with God hopefully someday we will meet again all the best God Bless Bobby! Go fly high with the Angels and say hello for us…love you

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
