Mr. Crosby left the US Army in 1963 and was a Foreman/Carpenter at Tom Trout Inc. for 42 years until his retirement in 2010. Edward had many passions in his spare time. One being the love of Bluegrass Music. Playing rhythm guitar with an abundant amount of Bluegrass friends. He truly enjoyed traveling to various Festivals within the Southeast. Two yearly Bluegrass events held a special place in his heart that he very much looked forward to attending. The “Rowdy” Wright Brothers in Brooklet, Ga. along with The Fiddlers Convention held in Galax, Va. Throughout the years many folks would also gather at the family home on Jefferson Avenue to pick music, play poker and have a good time on the carport. He also had a passion to be on the St. Johns River fishing whenever he could. It made him happy teaching the children and grandchildren where the “honey holes” were as well as the craft of fishing. No services are being held as Mr. Crosby’s wishes were to be cremated and a Celebration of Life along with a picking and poker party held in his memory on March 6th 2021 at his residence. His ashes will remain with “his Doll” Edna, until her passing then the two will be buried together in the family gravesite in Patterson, Ga.
