Aaron Crawford, 48, life long resident of the central Willamette Valley passed away in his sleep at his Hubbard home Saturday, December 3rd.
He was born March 22, 1974 and grew up outside Aurora, Oregon before starting his long, accomplished career in the golf industry. Aaron excelled at everything he did, riding BMX Freestyle half pipes and helping pioneer the sport in Oregon in the 1980's as a teenager. He went on to become an exceptional motocross rider and was an accomplished sketch artist and draftsman. He loved the musical arts and played guitar as well as piano. He was blessed with an amazingly quick wit and his sense of humor was legendary among his friends. His latest accomplishment was singing.
Aaron was preceded in death by his father Milton Crawford in the early 2000's. He is survived by his mother Sara Crawford; sister Tara Crawford, half brother Scott Crawford, half sister Carrie Thompson; and four children — daughters Carly and Courtney and sons Jacob and Nathan. He leaves many friends and business associates behind, including close friend of 30 plus years Ron Burch of Woodburn.
Plans for services will be announced at a later date.
