William David Crosby

October 3, 1953 - December 28, 2017

Beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend passed away on December 28, 2017 of complications due to ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosisor Lou Gehrig Disease).

Bill worked for Hill Air Force Base at the time of his death. His strong work ethic, and dedication made him successful at every job he ever held. He was kind and soft as a teddy bear most of the time, but mean as a bull when he needed to be.

Dad loved his family fiercely and was our pillar of strength. He would listen intently and offer advice on any subject you may be struggling with. He quickly earned respect, and expected the same in return.

Pa loved to go fishing, camping, hunting, racing cars, and playing cards with his family. His zest for life was as contagious as his smile. His laughter could change the mood in a room in seconds. He will be missed by many.

Bill is survived by his loving wife of 44 years Cindy Crosby of Sunset, UT.; son Bryan (Skye)Crosby of West Point, UT.; daughter Jennifer (Greg) Gardner of Dundee, OR.; brothers: Lamar (Barbara) Crosby of Roy, UT,, Patrick (Barbara) Crosby of St Charles, MO,; In -Laws Greg (Heidi) Naylor Clinton, UT,, Eric (Tammy) Naylor Roy, UT,, David (Roxanne) Naylor Apple Valley, UT, Wendi Naylor (David) Houston Syracuse, UT,, Barbara Little Layton, UT,, Phyllis Roedner (Fred) St. Charles, MO; six Grandkids,;tons of nieces and nephews whom he adored,; and friends that he brought into his inner circle of extended family.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents William and Betty Crosby; in-laws Richard Naylor,; Linda Newton;and brother-in -law Edward Naylor.

A Celebration of Life will be held on January 13, 2018 from 1:00 P.M to 4:00 P.M. at the Sunset Room (200 W. 1300 N. Sunset UT.)
