Within 15 seconds of being around PapPaw you were offered a Pepsi, something sweet, and a hug which made you feel loved. His light touch all who came in contact with him. My prayers go out to his family and love ones.

Uncle Ed you will be greatly missed. I will always remember our trips to VA and all of the wonderful memories sitting around the kitchen table hearing your stories and I can still hear your laugh and Aunt Bonnie's laugh.

With deepest sympathy to all of your loved ones left behind.
Love, Kim Monzon

Before I was old enough to get out to the bars, Uncle Eddie would offer to take me…us kids…out honky tonkin’, drinking Pabst once we were of age. Didn’t matter that we lived states away, I figured one day that was gonna happen, but it never did.

Would have been great to hang out, shoot the sh*t, and hear your great stories. I’m sorry we never got pops back down so at least you two brothers could see each other one more time. Now you’re both gone. The memories will never fade. Love you Uncle Eddie.

Mr. Crozier was like a second dad to me growing up as a kid and even as an adult always there for a good joke a laugh or just some good needed advise and a ear to listen. He has been there through marriage,children,divorce remarriage and grandchildren. If he was sick he still had a smile and a big hug always glad to see me as I was him. All the memories as a kid of him and momma crozier at the race track always ready for a fun time watching him race and cheering him on. He was a proud man a wonderful father and grandfather and great great father not to just his but to all of the kids in the neighborhood were his children if you ever needed anything if he could help you he would and with no questions ask. He loves his time serving out country and had awesome stories he loves to tell to anyone willing to listen. Ed Crozier was a humble man and took nothing for granted he loved life and GOD and his country but of all the things he loved he loves his BONNIE the love of his life his wife who was waiting for him in heaven all these years and has now received him w a smile and huge hug, they are dancing and catching up on all the good times. I am sure they have a lot to talk about lol. This man was tough as nails he fought for many years but now his fight is over . He is no longer in pain he is no longer tired and suffering from this evil thing called cancer. I will miss him he left a huge mark on my life and he will never be forgotten. Rest easy dad.
