TSgt. Roy R. Crowder, USAF (Ret.) entered into rest on Saturday, February 10, 2024, at his residence. He was 74 years old.

Born on February 24, 1949, in Durand, Georgia, Roy was the son of the late Frank and Lily Mae Crowder. A man of integrity and dedication, Roy served his country with honor in the United States Air Force for 21 years, retiring with the rank of Technical Sergeant. He was an active member of the Airman's Club. After his Air Force retirement, Roy later worked as a truck driver for Timberlake.

Roy was known for his colorful personality, marked by his warmth, generosity, and unyielding spirit. A true pillar of his community, he was always ready to lend a helping hand to his neighbors and friends. Roy was not one to shy away from expressing his thoughts and opinions, embodying authenticity in all his interactions.

Among his many passions, Roy found joy in fishing, tinkering with cars, and the artistry of grilling and smoking tasteful meals. A fan of jazz music and movies, he could often be found immersed in the melodies of his favorite tunes or captivated by the narratives unfolding on the silver screen.

Above all else, Roy treasured the moments spent with his cherished family, especially his adoring grandchildren. His legacy of love and cherished memories will forever live on in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing him.

In addition to his parents, Roy was preceded in death by his four sisters and three brothers.

His memory will forever be treasured by his son, Frank Crowder (Tiffany) of Apopka, Florida; grandchildren, Myles Crowder of Portsmouth, Virginia, Chase Crowder and Farrah Crowder, both of Macon, and Jaxson Crowder and Cassidy Crowder, both of Apopka, Florida; and brother, Randy Crowder of Deland, Florida.

A memorial service will held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 17, 2024, in the chapel of McCullough Funeral Home.  Roy will be laid to rest privately at Andersonville National Cemetery.
