From the very first day that we met, Uncle Edgar and I were connected by a very special bond that flowed through family and friends all across the country! We shared so many wonderful times and laughs together. One that was most memorable to me was when I called my sister/cousin Stephanie out in California to tell her that Edgar had gotten a transplant, she just about ran her car off the road. She was like on the next thing smoking to Atlanta to hug his neck. That actually was in 2006. Stephanie passed away in 2007.
He was the light of our inspiration for 12 years from then. We had even more laughs and good times over and over again. The picture is from when he and Pinky came over to our Annual Holiday - "Over the Rainbow"- on Hilton Head in 2014. Miss you so much, Uncle Edgar, but you will always be with us in our hearts! Love to everyone!

Edgar and I were friends for many decades via the AFT. In a backhand event of missing each other for lunch in NYC at a convention I meet my husband to be Earl Wolf. We danced at the wedding of Pinky and Edgar as a married couple.
Edgar's great humor and fabulous smile will be surely missed.
Rest in peace my friend.

Edgar and I grew up together in Brutonville, Al. Through the years we would catch up on what was going on in our lives at Christmas. Pinky please accept my sincere condolences. You and your family are on my heart and in my prayers. Cynthia Reed Evans

I met Crook at AAMU and we became friends which extended to Cleveland, OH while he lived here. We lost contact after he moved to Georgia. If he was your friend, he could be counted on always. Sincere sympathies to his family and all who suffer his loss.

I have fond memories of Edgar. I am from Jacksonville, Alabama. We both attended and graduated from Alabama A & M University from1965 - 1969. While at A&M it was always nice having conversations with Edgar about our hometowns. After all - We were "Home-Girl and Home-Boy!"

To the Crook Family,
Please accept our sincere condolences. You have suffered a" loss." But be assured - Edgar is " not lost." He is with the Lord! May God give you peace and strength during this difficult time.

From grade school, to high school, through college, and beyond, Edgar was a dear supportive friend and classmate. Over the years he became more & more like family. He was always there to help and console us when needed. Today my heart is heavy from the loss of someone so very special and kind. He is truly missed.
Love, Gauthra
