Bruce "Pete" Wayne Crawford

Bruce “Pete” Wayne Crawford, 71, of Marion, North Carolina went to be with the Lord surrounded by his loving family on Wednesday, January 12, 2022 at his residence.

Pete was born in Burke County, North Carolina on November 20, 1950 to the late Elmer and Ruth Crawford of Banner Elk, North Carolina. He was a long-time member of the New Manna Baptist Church of Marion, North Carolina and proudly served his country as a U.S. Marine.

Pete was a man of faith who loved his Lord, family, church, and country. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend to many. Pete spent many years working alongside friends and family members for Gamewell Mechanical as a commercial HVAC installer. He enjoyed spending his free time riding motorcycles with his son Matt, tinkering around in his shop with his collection of vehicles and gadgets, and always had house projects he was working on. Pete was always happy to help a friend or neighbor and you could frequently find him at his beloved church.

In addition to his parents, Pete was preceded in death by his sister Jean Ollis; brothers, Cecil Crawford and Jimmy Crawford.

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife of 46 years, Debbie Young Crawford; his son, Matthew Crawford (Katie); his two grandchildren, Emma and Jack Crawford; sisters, Betty Fox and Helen Buchanan; brothers, Steve Crawford (Marcella) and George Crawford (Linda); and many loved nieces, nephews, friends, and family members.

A funeral service will be held on Friday, January 14, 2022 at 3:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Beam Funeral Service. The family will receive friends from 2:00 until 3:00 p.m. Burial will be at the Western Carolina State Veterans Cemetery at a later date.

I went to school with Wayne. I kept hoping he would come to a class reunion. I just never realized just how bad he felt. RIP Wayne. Prayers to the family.
