Tim grew up in Ocoee, Florida, where he spent most of his childhood and early adult life. He left his impression on the town with his brother, Tony Crowe, at an early age playing ball in the yards of neighbors and friends, getting in an out of trouble like young boys do. He attended and played baseball for Ocoee Junior High before moving on to play baseball and football for West Orange High School.

They enjoyed fishing and hunting together regularly, and shared talents in baseball spending a lot of time together on the baseball diamond. Tim worked hard, loyally working as a Lineman and Troubleman for Duke Energy for over 30 years. He took pride in his work and helping turn on the power for the community. He also made sure to work in a few pranks on co-workers now and then, learning a couple tricks from one of his favorite shows, the Impractical Jokers. Tim also excelled in football during his high school years, loved restoring his trucks and jeeps, air boating, and deer hunting and fishing with his friends and family. He even built his own home with the help of friends and family, which he took much pride in with its surrounding yard. He leaves inspiration for his son, and wonderful memories with those who knew and loved him. Tim was preceded in death by his mother, Lynn (Calhoun) Freeman. He is survived by his son, Timothy Crowe, Jr.; parents GH and Linda Crowe; siblings Cindy Crowe, Tony Crowe, and Donnie Crowe.

I met Tim while attending Tavares High in 1980-81 on the football field. He was an excellent football player. One time at practice we were doing a drill called "bull in the ring" whereas players form a circle around one in the center of the ring and are assigned a number. The coach calls out a random number to charge into the player to remove him. I was in the center and Tim's number got called and out I went. I remember Coach Sosinski's immortal words as he stood over me..."What are made out of, Ice Cream!" Tim graduated my junior year and I took his jersey #72 my senior year. So glad we got to speak with each other. Rest in Peace my friend!
