In memory of
Freeland Dean Crumly
Freeland Dean Crumly went to be with his Lord & Savior on March 9, 2019. He was born January 27, 1923 in Birmingham, Alabama to Jesse and Ordis Crumly. He lettered in tennis in high school and continued his education at Georgia Tech. His degrees also include Infrared Fundamentals from U of Michigan and Laser Technology from the U of Tennessee, Space Institute. He graduated just in time to join the Army Signal Corps, attend OCS, become a 2nd Lieutenant, and head out to Japan to join the big invasion to end WWII. News of the two big nukes stopped his train, the war ended, and the next three years were spent as the Signal Officer on the island of Antigua and Puerto Rico. He worked at a Signal Corps Laboratory in NJ, where he changed the design of a major generation microwave tube, followed by working on missiles in Huntsville, AL. The next 24 years were spent at Eglin AFB as a target engineer, working on missile scoring systems. He then spent 20 years working for computer tech companies associated with Eglin. His greatest passion, aside from his family, was his country. He spent thousands of hours on the "Liberty Amendment," an amendment first introduced to Congress in the 1960's. He believed this amendment could save our country and our freedom. He was preceded in death by his brother, sister, and son, Dean. He leaves behind his beloved wife of 75 years, Margaret, his daughter, Diane (Clay), grandson Jayme Crouch (Jeanie), great grandson Tanner Cypret (Laura), and step great grandsons Chris and Seth Goins. He also leaves behind his dearest friend Dick Franks, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was a perfect husband, father, grandfather. He was admired, respected, loved and adored by all. His memorial service will be at Beal Memorial Cemetery on April 5, 2019 at 11:30am.
