June 25, 2018

My Uncle Gary has an older BROTHER Joe Crawford, my father.

JOE coached and trained GARY all through his successful wrestling career.
They are from the same STRONG stock, My Grandfather Crawford, My father Joe ( Junior), Gary and myself will forever carry on the Crawford name, with pride.

Although they had differences, They will be forever brothers- and that can not be altered.

RIP Uncle Gary- I am sorry, we just recently heard of your passing. I will always remember the holidays and our talks.

Gary was my team mate at GCC and friend since 1979, We battled the competition and had great time doing it. The friendship and lifelong bond began there and continued though good times and hard times. He was one of the most physically and mentally tough individuals I have ever known. He gave a lot back to wrestling and prepared many for there opportunity to shine in their time on the matt. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. He was a hard core adventure and I am glad we had an opportunity to share many together. I loved him like a brother and will miss him greatly.

God Bless my friend Gary Crawford,.

Jimmy Brennan.
