Bennie Crowe

Pickens, SC- Mr. Bennie Floyd Crowe, 84, loving husband of Shelby Jean Duncan Crowe, passed away on November 19, 2021 at Manna Health and Rehab of Pickens.

Bennie was born on March 13, 1937, in Pickens, South Carolina to the late Lawrence and Clovie Baynard Crowe. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend. Bennie emitted love, wisdom, patience, and care everywhere he went; and to know him was to love him. He loved the Lord and was the example of what a Godly man should be, and his top priority was making sure his family was loved and taken care of. Bennie was the fixer of all things broken and the finder of all things lost. When he wasn’t spending time with his family, he stayed busy cutting grass, working in his shop, gardening, and tending to his cows. Bennie enjoyed his weekly coffee and fellowship gatherings with old friends, and his sweet smile and witty sense of humor will be deeply missed.

In addition to his loving wife, Bennie is survived by one son: Tony Crowe (Joann) of Pickens; three granddaughters: Jaclyn Payne (Ryan) of Easley, Jennifer Whitmire (Gabriel) of Liberty, and Heather Allison (Steve) of Easley; four great-grandchildren: Eliza, John-Luke, Everett, and Aaron; and one sister: Ann Gwin (Roger) of Pickens.

In addition to his parents, Bennie was preceded in death by one daughter: Jane O'Brien; one brother: Hoyt Crowe; and one sister-in-law: Ann Crowe.

A graveside service will be held at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, November 23, 2021 at Hillcrest Memorial Park. The family will receive friends following the service at the graveside.

The family is at the residence.
