He represented countless individuals over the years in domestic, civil, and criminal cases. He performed many marriage ceremonies over the years. Mr. Crawford found great joy in helping people through his forty plus years law career. He was respected by his peers and colleagues for his professionalism, intellect, and dedication.

Mr. Crawford was a dedicated husband to Linda. They met at the Springfield Bowling Alley and were married on April 12, 1963. They were always together and enjoyed many outings. It was common to see them enjoying breakfast at Larry’s. They are life-long residents of Greenbrier where they raised their daughter, Judith Gail, and son, Michael Andrew. Some of their memorable vacations included multiple visits to Daytona Beach; a trip out west to visit the Badlands, Yellowstone National Park, and Mount Rushmore; Hawaii; and Germany. Mr. Crawford was an avid sports fan. He was a Nashville Sounds season ticket holder, attended many TTU homecomings and TTU vs MTSU games, and was recognized by Greenbrier Athletic Association as a “GHS Football Loyal Fan”. He was known as “Papa” to his grandchildren, Izabella, Kadyn, Sydney, Julia, Luke, and Lyla and loved them dearly.

Obituary for Faye “Granny” Hall

Faye Hall, age 79 died Saturday, February 8, 2020. She was born in Springfield, Tennessee to J.C. and Cecil Morris on November 4, 1940. Known to everyone as “Granny Hall”, her family was her life. A member of Center Point Church, Granny Hall loved to cook and cooked everything from scratch. Her children say it was impossible for Faye to cook for only 2 people. The most beloved dishes were her chicken and dumplins, fried chicken, goulash, banana pudding and her world famous fried apple pies. (Sorry but there are no written recipes so no need to ask) Her homemade biscuits will never be duplicated. She attempted to teach everyone in the family how to make them but it can’t be done. Faye loved westerns (especially the old ones in black and white), The Lone Ranger, John Wayne and Clint Eastwood, anything on the National Geographic channel or the Hallmark Channel. At Christmas when the family was together, she loved watching everyone say the lines to Christmas Vacation while watching the movie. She also loved to sew, loved flowers and gardening, birds (especially red birds) and staying at home because she never wanted to miss someone coming for a visit. Her favorite color is purple.

Faye is preceded in death by her parents, J.C. and Cecil Johnson Morris; husband, JW Hall and a brother, James Wayne Morris. She is survived by 4 children; Carolyn (Brad) LaMontagne, Ricky (Susan) Hall, Betsy (Mike) Hollingsworth, and Jay (Sherry) Hall; a brother, Alford Morris and 2 sisters, Johnnie Hand and Abbiegail Jackson; 6 grandchildren, Shayna (Jonathan) Liebengood, Landon (Kaitlyn) Scott, Amy (David) Ingram, Matt (Kortnee) Hall, Sam Hall (Morgan)and Victoria Hollingsworth; 5 great-grandchildren, Hallie Liebengood, Rex Liebengood, Talan Ingram, Miles Ingram and Atley Kate Hall, and many nieces and nephews
