Hershel Junior Crews

Nov. 28, 2021


Hershel Junior Crews, 76, went to his heavenly home Sunday, Nov. 28, 2021, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born in Beaumont, Kentucky, the only son of Hershel William Crews and Reba (Rigsby) Crews. In October 2008 he married his best friend, Connie Flick. She survives.

Junior began his career at Froedge’s Inc., then served Crawfordsville’s street and sewage departments. In 1984, he joined Dicaperl Corp., formerly Grevco, as a maintenance welder, then maintenance manager. He retired in 2010.

Junior was a member of the Moose Lodge and American Legion. He loved working outside, spending time in the woods and telling stories on his porch. His dry humor will be missed.

In addition to his wife, Junior is survived by his loving daughter, Kristy Crews; sons, (Yancy) Shane Crews and DJ Starcevish; step-daughters, Tonya (Matt) Gudell, Charity Risley and Kendra (Owen) Cooks; grandchildren, Allison (Blaine) Rohlk, Jacob Crews, Jessica Crews, Linsey (Cody) Flick, Kyle Dagley, Tyler (Sheridan) Gudell, Ashlyn Risley, Grace Merriman, Blaine Merriman, Noah (Sara) Merriman and Michael (Alex) Merriman; and brothers and sisters-in-law, Rex Hayes, Ed (Lavonne) Myers and Eleanor (Roger) Wilcox; and several great-grandchildren, loving nieces and nephews, and cousins.

Junior was preceded in death by his mother; father; his beloved sisters, Lucy Hayes and Eva Bushong; sister-in-law, Barb Eaton; and brother-in-law, Clifford Eaton.

Visitation will be held 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4 at Hunt and Son Funeral Home, with the funeral service to follow at 3 p.m. Junior will be laid to rest at Indian Creek Cemetery.

The family appreciates the skill and compassionate care of the Franciscan Alliance Home Health and Hospice team as well as Dr. Roberts and his staff.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions to the Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County.
