Thursday, February 12, 2015 – David Crews – RIP
I hope you had the honor and privilege of meeting David Crews from Montgomery County. David passed away this week after a long life of public service. I noticed in his obituary he was listed as a raconteur. I have the feminine version, raconteuse, on my business card. David is the only person I knew that would know the meaning of that word off the top of his head. David was indeed a raconteur. One wanted to sit and listen to David’s stories for hours.
If anybody deserves being buried in the State Cemetery, with the heroes and heroines from Texas, it is you, David. Anybody who walks those grounds knows that only those who made history are remembered there. I wonder what you will have on your headstone. You would probably put something like “One of the last Democrats in Montgomery County.” You should put something like “One of the Best Texans and People Ever!” You will be missed.
