Mr. Crawford served in the United States Navy, as a Store Keeper Third Class, from 1959 to 1962. Upon his release from active duty, Mr. Crawford relocated to Maryland and secured a position with C & P Telephone Company in Gaithersburg, which eventually became part of AT&T in 1970.
In this position he received the 1980 AT&T Ingenuity Award, which was presented to Mr. Crawford at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. He was recognized for repurposing AT&T equipment to fulfill a Federal Aviation Administration contract that kept the vital organization operating until improved equipment was procured.

He then went to work for Denro Corporation in Gaithersburg as a Logistics Manager overseeing the making of new equipment for the FAA.
After leaving Denro, Mr. Crawford moved to Venice, Florida where he lived for several years and worked as an all-purpose handyman before returning to Maryland to be near his children and grandchildren. Mr. Crawford spent his final years with family and many friends.
He is survived by his daughter Angela Konietzko, and sons, Kevin and Shannon Crawford, his grandchildren Brandon Crawford and Emily Konietzko and his former spouse, Anne Crawford.
