James "JP" Crisp


In the early morning hours of Sunday, January 23, 2022, James “JP” Crisp went home to be with the Lord. He was born on August 2, 1933 in Clay County to the late Lee Barry and Artie Mason Crisp.

He is preceded in death by his son, Jason Crisp and siblings, Richard Crisp, Gene Crisp and Neva Baxter.

JP attended Zion Hill Baptist Church and was a retired furniture supervisor. He enjoyed the outdoors, camping, fishing especially working on his tractor. JP was a loving father, grandfather and brother and will be greatly missed.

He is survived by three children, Bryon Crisp (Elizabeth), Shari Crisp (Rick Hensley) and Eric Crisp; daughter-in-law, Amanda Crisp; three brothers, Glenn Crisp, Louis Crisp and Lester Crisp (Judy). Also surviving JP are six grandchildren, Eleni Zenteno, Payton Crisp (Abbie), Garett Crisp, Bryson Crisp, Logan Crisp and Matthew Crisp and one great-grandson, James Farra.

A funeral service will take place on Thursday, January 27, 2022 at 3:00 p.m. at Beam Funeral Service Chapel with Dr. Tom Walker and Reverend Millard Kiser officiating. The family will receive friends from 2:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m., one hour prior to the service at the funeral home. Interment will follow the service at Zion Hill Baptist Church Cemetery.

Glad to have known JP - he was a good man and a fantastic father. He raised 3 boys and a girl by himself and did a great job with it all. He'll be missed by many and his reward will be great!

I am so sorry to hear this. JP was a precious person. He would come to the Senior Center daily for lunch. Before he would eat he and the other guys at table #1 would get the ladies lunch at the table across from them . He always had a nice thing to say when you seen him. He will be missed. He and Jason is having a time over in Heaven. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
