Crosby, Richard G. of Leamington, ON

Posted by on September 23, 2018

Passed away peacefully after spending three days with his family. His priorities in life were his love for Jesus, his love for his wife and his love for his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Richard was well educated with two degrees in business (BBA, MBA) and a Masters in Theology. He worked for 38 years at Ford Motor Company and another 20 years as a lay minister in the Lutheran Church. He was the beloved husband of Carol for 65 years, adored father of Kim (Dave), Karen (John), Ross (Kim), Joe (Lynn) and Paul, respected grandfather of Dennis, (Haley), Laila (Vern), John and Richie, Phil (Cara), Nick (Madison), Christian and Jaclyn, Stephen (Melissa), Daniel (Alyson), Jonathan (deceased) and Joseph. He had nine great grandchildren Olivia, Crosby and Malcolm, Aria, Luca, Cole and Ella, Aurora, Oliver and Leo. That makes another baseball team! He was an amazing athlete who played baseball, basketball, football and golf – when Carol and Richard lived on Chelsea Street in Windsor he told everyone he lived between his two “holy/holey” places – Gethsemane Lutheran Church and Essex Golf and Country Club. He was a great man and will be sorely missed.
