April 2, 1943 - December 30, 2020

Robert V. Crew, Jr., age 77, of Elkton, MD, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, December 30, 2020.

Born in Chestertown, MD on April 2, 1943, he was the son of the late Robert V. and Elva L. (Turner) Crew. After graduating from Sudlersville High School, Robert dedicated 62 years of service as a carpenter for the Carpenters Union Local 626, then retired. He was born a Methodist, but considered himself a Born-Again Christian. In his free time, Robert enjoyed wood working, all things nature, shooting his recurve bow, and reading The Bible. He had a heart for animals, especially his dog, Abigail, whom he referred to as his baby.

In addition to his parents, Robert was preceded in death by his sister, Patricia J. Crew. He is survived by his dear wife of 56 years, Mildred Crew; children, Robert V. Crew III, Rodney J. Crew and Patricia J. Crew; sister, Ellen (Crew) Wersten; 10 grandchildren; and 9 great-grandchildren.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the family will not be holding services at this time.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Robert’s memory to The Paris Foundation, 229 South Bridge Street, Elkton, MD 21921, where he and his wife volunteered their time working with the homeless population.

  • Ellen, So very sorry for your loss.

  • I went to high school with Bobby and remember him fondly. He was a sweet and gentle soul with a ready smile. The photo you’ve chosen for his obituary made me smile right back at him. It was just as I remember him. My thoughts are with his family and loved ones.

  • My condolences to the Crew Family for your loss.

  • Dear Ellen, Mildred & the entire Crew Family, I am so very sorry to read of Bobby’s passing. This brought back so very many memories of growing up in Crumpton. And all of the “folks” that I remember so fondly today and always. I still visit the home my family built – the “log house” at Front St. by the “boat ramp”. So many “teen year” memories of the Wersten “boys” Robert and Richard. The Hurlock “girls”, Judy, Linda and Janet. Russell Hammond. Eleanor Spencer, Susan Larrimore. . . I only attended Sudlersville High for one year of my four high school years but it was the BEST. Bobby even went to my Jr Prom with me at Mt Pleasant High in Wilmington. And yes, his smile is still the same! I know you all have so many wonderful memories to keep with you forever. God Bless.

  • To Sister Bridget and family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. My condolences and heart is with you. We will continue to pray for you all during this difficult time. Our brother Bob was such a beautiful soul. I truly enjoyed fellowship with him. Bob will be greatly missed by so many people who were blessed by his presence.
    Love, peace, and blessings to all.
