Gene Paul Crabaugh moved into his Heavenly Home on December 6, 2021 due to medical complications with Covid. He was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Paul and Faye Crabaugh on September 7, 1936, which was Labor Day with a heat wave of 113 degrees. Gene attended Webster High School but joined the Navy in his Senior year due to drag racing his car and destroying the motor and transmission. Being upset he told his mom, “I’ll just join the Navy and she replied, ‘Good!!’” After a four-year tour in the Navy in which he earned his GED certificate, Gene became a machinist with 20th Century Manufacturing, which was an oil related business, working there until his retirement in January 2000. Gene had so many interests. He took Flying lessons and did his solo flight, but soon lost interest since he met Karen at church and married her May 22, 1975. His interests soon turned to being a husband and father to his blended family and to serving the Lord with a bus route and teacher to the Primary Boys Class and after his retirement, to the adult class. Gene had many talents. Artist, Carpenter, Mechanic, Gardener and Rock Mason. He had the Gift of Helps, supporting Foreign Missions, mowing the yards of the widows and anyone he could.
