We are so sorry to hear of Pastor Tony’s passing. Our family has many good memories of Tony as our Pastor. He baptized my husband and daughter. A godly man with a great big heart. Mary Ann, Amy, and Anna Paige, we will be lifting each of you and your families in our prayers. I think of what magnificent beauty Tony may be seeing today in heaven. Jesus, Our Savior and King!! Beauty all around, family and friends that have gone on before. Lots of people there because of him preaching the gospel. Thank you Crouch family for sharing your husband and Dad with us. Many thanks to God today for his life on this earth. We love you, Sharon and David

Mary Ann and family, we are so sorry for your loss.  Our family will certainly be missing a special person in days to come.  Tony was such a kind spirit with love for everyone.  I still think of how much he reminds me of our dad.  We are saddened for the loss but thankful for the blessing that he is now in the arms of the Father.  With love and sympathy, Rance, Marcia & Leslie Bradley and David Crouch & Family.
