John was born in Carlsbad, New Mexico on May 17th, 1958 to Jim and Betty Crabb. He grew up in Arizona, Arkansas, California, New Mexico and Wyoming. He passed away at the young age of 63 from complications of an aggressive form of ALS on May 24th in the comfort of his home.
John was a hardworking man who took great pride in everything he did. He was the best darn hydrotech in the state of Wyoming and he loved his job. He was in love with taking care of his dear wife, Clara Mae, and providing the absolute best for her. He loved to garden and could make anything grow. John was genuinely a good person, he had a heart of gold and would not hesitate to give you the shirt off his back. He loved his family with everything they had, but he loved his Clara Mae the most of all. He always said the good Lord above saved the best for last and that she saved his life, but really they saved each other.
John and Clara met in Casper, Wyoming in 1996 and wed four years later on the 25th of February, 2000. John quickly became the greatest dad and best friend to Michael B and Robert. They enjoyed fishing, working on motors and doing yard work together. John and Clara had the greatest adventures in their 21 years together. He was Clara's best friend, husband, lover, the air she breathed and her heart will forever be broken.
He was greeted in Heaven with open arms by his father, Jim, his brother, Jody, and nephew Jack. We find comfort in knowing they are all together again at the good fishin' hole.
He is survived by his wife, Clara. His two sons Michael (Jennifer) Marsh and Robert (Cherie) Marsh. Nephew Chance (Jenifer) Crabb, nieces Jodie (James) Sipes, Jessica Crabb, and Angie Crabb. Five grandsons, 1 granddaughter, 3 great nephews, and 2 great nieces.
