All the Crosby Family,
Mark and I send our sincerest condolences for the loss of such a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle. Ross and I met years ago working on the Franklin Park Recreation Board to provide a great safe park system in the community for all families to enjoy year round, For many years we worked on the Festival in the Park held at Blueberry Hill Park.. doing all kinds of things. I feel blessed to have had the privilege of being his friend.
God Bless You All,
Maryann Scott
Franklin Park
