R.V. Crawford, fondly known as Rudy, passed away peacefully from this life on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at the age of 90. He was born October 6, 1926 in Holdenville, Oklahoma to his parents, William Isaac and Mary Eliza (Quillen) Crawford. Rudy married Eddeth Rose and shared many wonderful memories together raising their children and watching their family grow until her death in 2007.
