Anthony Crabtree Obituary, Death – We are deeply saddened to inform you of the passing of Anthony Crabtree, who served as the Firefighter/Cadet Coordinator. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes. The news of his passing has shocked everyone in this place to their core. We owe him a significant debt of gratitude for the sum of twelve years that he spent giving freely of his time and energy to the community in the capacity of a volunteer. Please remember his family in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this trying time. They could use some support as they go through this journey. They need as much assistance as they can get their hands on at the moment.
During this time of transition, we pray for peace and comfort for the Crabtree family as well as for all of Anthony’s brothers and sisters who are now serving in the fire department. We are aware that this is a difficult time for all of you as Anthony is now beginning a new part of his eternal life, and we wish to express our condolences for the loss that you have suffered. In addition, I would like to make a request that our prayers be extended to cover the members of the Park Rangers who are stationed at the Prairie Creek Reservoir right now. Please say a prayer for them. It is never an easy thing to pass away, and it is difficult for us to understand the reasons why the Lord chooses to take some people when they are still so young.
Passing away is never an easy thing to do. We won’t understand the rationale behind why things are the way they are until a very long time from now, and it’s likely that we won’t understand it until after our own deaths. We are praying right now for everyone who is reading this that the Lord would wrap his loving arms around them and that he would draw them closer to himself so that they might find consolation in him. Brother, your shift has ended, and the thankful people who are a member of our community would like to show their thanks to you for the service you’ve provided to them. We would like to use this opportunity to thank you for everything you’ve done for them. Relax and take things easy.
