Neil J. Crawford, 43, of Corry, Pennsylvania, passed away Sunday, Nov. 14, 2021, due to complications with Covid-19.
He was born in Queens, New York, on June 29, 1978, to James and Joan Crawford. Both parents preceded him in death.
He attended Jamaica High School in New York then went on to work in Security at Citi Field. He relocated to Pennsylvania in 2011, where he continued his work in security at Presque Isle Downs and Casino.
Neil was larger than life in everything he did. He was a gentle giant that gave the best hugs and had a laugh that was contagious. He showed love and kindness to everyone around him and kept others laughing with his silliness and sense of humor. He loved working with computers and other technology and was an avid gamer.
Neil leaves behind his girlfriend Kristin Long; his daughter Paige Hansen; and grandson Adam James Hansen; his brother Jason Crawford and his wife Adriana; and two nephews, Timothy and Nicholas Crawford; a former spouse and friend Cassie Crawford and her family; as well as six honorary nieces and nephews and many great friends.
A celebration of Neil’s life will be held soon. The event will be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
