William J. Crawford Jr., 66 of Auburn passed away unexpectedly Saturday, July 2, 2022 at his home.

Bill enjoyed playing the guitar, winning at Scrabble, and watching some of his favorite shows (like Star Trek and NCIS). He also was an amateur geologist but would have liked you to think he was a professional one. Bill was extremely quick witted and loved to joke and laugh with his family and friends.

  The family will greet any friends Monday, July 11th, from 5pm to 7pm at the Pettigrass Funeral Home, 196 Genesee St., Auburn, NY.

  In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the fund for his dogs, Abby and Scoot. The money will be used for their vet bills, grooming, relocation fees, and spoiling them like they deserve for making his life a happier one and being with him till the end. please look at       The link that says, Abby and Scoot, organized by Chelsea Crawford.
