We are profoundly saddened to learn of Crevan's passing. We still remember the vibrant young boy playing cards in our living room and soccer and baseball in the yards outside our houses. The words from all those he touched here make it clear that Crevan grew into a truly remarkable young man who left the world a better place than he found it.

I met Crevan a few years ago in Dublin for st patricks weekend, he approached me in a bar with his amazing smile and of course his charm. Many drinks where had along with stories of all of his amazing adventures, he was very proud of his irish background and he'd of made dublin lads look like fools with all of his irish knowledge. I was instantly impressed. We kept in touch after his irish tour and hoped to meet once again. Its a weekend I'll never forget, when the handsome american came to dublin as all my friends would say. Crevan has a beautiful soul and my prayers go out to his loving family and friends. Have an amazing adventure crevan xxx

To Crevan's family and many friends,
I had the privilege of being Crevan's IB Spanish teacher. He was smart, fun and very kind. I loved his joyful smile and his humble ways. I knew he would go on to do great things. I am proud to hear of all he accomplished after graduation, and so very sad to hear of his death. My deepest sympathy and prayers.

It's been a while since I last saw Crevan, but a lot of fun was had and a lot of memories made. He touched the lives of so many people and will always be remembered. I'll never forget all of the pool parties and nights out in Gainesville. Never a dull moment and always a lot of laughing! Heaven must have been needing another angel to take you so soon. Sending my deepest condolences to all. God bless.

We both are so sad to hear about Crevan. The last time we saw him was when he was a baby. We were helping Julie carry him up the mountain in Germany. He was such a happy and BIG baby. It is wonderful to hear all these tributes to him and know that he grew to be a man his family can be proud of. Please know that we are thinking of you.
