Obituary of Robert Cudahy Crowe
Please share a memory of Robert to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Robert C. Crowe, O.D. passed away at Hazel Hawkins Hospital in Hollister, California at the age of 72. Dr. Robert C. Crowe was a dearly loved husband and father who was blessed with 72 years of life. He was an incredible figure in the community of Morgan Hill, and an even greater family man. Those who knew him, from family, friends and associates describe him as a very kind, gentle, intelligent and loving man. He had a heart of gold that showed through his kind words, continual positivity and unwavering support of those he loved. 72 years is not nearly enough for such a man as he. Dr. Crowe served Morgan Hill as an optometrist for 44 years. Multiple generations of families came to see him throughout those 44 years. He was a life member and past President of Rotary Club of Morgan Hill. He loved animals, taking a special fondness to cats and bird watching. As an avid reader, he would often be seen reading his Kindle, with his favorite book being the Bible. He committed to raising his family according to his Christian faith and unwavering values, which his children have been inspired to pass on to his grandchildren. He is survived by his wife, Marcia, of 42 years and his 8 children, Jessica Wirts (Shawn), Brianne Silva (Ray), Jaimelyn Schaefer (Gregg), Bonnie Crowe, Thomas Crowe (Shannon), Natalie Crowe, Taryn Crowe, and Amanda Crowe, his sister Kathy Nutt and 22 grandchildren, along with many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by a son, Nathan Robert Crowe. Husband, father, papa, doctor and so much more! You are incredibly loved and deeply missed. We will see you one day again in heaven. A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
