Andrew "Drew" Crisman
June 23, 1949 – March 16, 2021
In the afternoon hours of Tuesday, March 16th, on a hillside in Fredon, NJ, fittingly above a valley of farms and ponds, filled with herds of horses and flocks of geese, Andrew James (Drew) Crisman passed from this life on his final journey. As he passed, Drew was surrounded by his wife Laura and family.
Drew leaves behind his three sons: Andrew (fiancee Shannon), Sean, and Patrick. Drew will be deeply missed by his siblings: H Bruce (Cris) Crisman, Kim Caufield Auch, Kerry Caufield McLaughlin, Kara Caufield, James Caufield, Kelly Caufield, Hugh Caufield, Patrick Caufield, Peter Caufield, Kyle Caufield, and Kamille Caufield Berrios, and this brothers-in-law John Wesh and Christopher Wesh, and their families. Drew’s passing will also be deeply felt by his siblings’ spouses, significant-others, 22 nieces and nephews, as well as many Corcoran and Finnegan cousins. Drew is predeceased by his parents Harry Bruce Crisman and Margaret (Pegge) Corcoran Caufield, and his stepfather James (Jimmy) Caufield as well as brothers-in-law John McLaughlin and Francis (Fran) Auch.
Drew attended Pope John XXIII High School (‘68) and St.Thomas More Prep, and Hudson Valley Community College, Troy, NY.
For many years, Drew resided with his family at their beloved Chukker Valley Farm in Gilbertsville, PA where he was founder of the Crisman Hardwood Flooring Company.
Quick to make friends wherever he went, Drew’s charm, wit, and sense of humor will be missed by his legion of friends, especially his current crew at Sparta Lake. He was a gifted woodworker who loved horses, NJ lakes, family gatherings, and Thanksgiving hayrides. A small service was held at Goble Funeral Home 22 Main St., Sparta, NJ 07871 for the immediate family. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
In his memory, donations may be made to Pope John XXIII High School, Sparta, NJ and/or the Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice Center, Newton, NJ.
Rest forever, Drew, and continue to look down on us with your love and strength.

I am one of the drivers of the Sparta Senior Transportation Bus and it was recently my privilege to drive Drew to his treatments.
I found Drew to be very friendly and outgoing in spite of his illness and it was a genuine pleasure to get to know him.
Rest in peace, Drew, and God bless you.

I would simply say, I have many fond memories of everyday events, whether in class, on the football field, at his house, even riding to school on the back of his moped! When I reconnected at school events while my son and Drew’s nephew attended Pope John together, I was very happy to see the kind of man Drew turned into. I will always recall him in the most favorable of ways. My best wishes to all his family, in their time of such loss.
