  • Norman Del Crowther January 29, 1943 - Sept 17, 2021, the love of my life and Eternal Companion, our beloved, husband, father, brother, grandfather, and friend, Norman Del Crowther has continued his journey on September 17th, 2021, after a valiant struggle with Covid. The day before his passing and after prayer these words came to my heart. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff shall comfort me. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:4,6) The next day, Norm went to the Eternal House of the Lord. He always said to those he loved, “See you there”. Norm was a spiritual giant among men. He lived a totally Christ-Centered life. He started every morning with scripture study and prayer. He prayed on his knees daily for all his children. His self-made mantra was: “Do everything in my power to make a difference in the world.” As a young man, he worked for National Geographic as an Editor. He was always good at finding typed errors and dangling participles along with many other types of errors. Norm was a licensed Real Estate Broker in Virginia and Utah. He loved his work. He especially loved to see his clients' faces light up when he helped them find the right home for their families. He was on the Board of Realtors in the state of Virginia representing legal contracts. He enjoyed making things right for those he served. He loved music and so many days I would hear the wonderful sounds of his piano playing streaming through the house. It was so fun when he played. He also would play his guitar and sing “Where have all the flowers gone?”. Norm’s favorite song was Amazing Grace, which says a lot about his personality and his relationship with God. He was strong but humble; a brilliant, deep-thinking, insightful, spiritual man. He loved the beauty of God’s earthly creations. He loved the spectacular sunsets of Utah and the beautiful mountains and lakes. He never tired of expressing his awe at God’s creations. Norm loved quotes. He loved finding new insights and he read for hours a day. He loved time spent with good friends in deep gospel discussions. He loved his family deeply, and he loved the Temple. He was so delighted when he found out that a temple would be built just above our house upon the mountain top. We had painted our front door our favorite color. It was a color that we saw on a lovely home we passed when we went to the Washington DC temple. After painting our door, we got our temple here. This filled him with great joy. Norm loved prayer and had an extremely strong faith in God. Priesthood blessings meant so much to him. Norm had a special gift that allowed him to learn through the Spirit. He was blessed as he acted on those promptings. We loved boating together. He was a wonderful mate. As we were boating, he was always enjoying the beauty of Strawberry Reservoir and the Uinta Mountains. Norm loved to sing. He especially loved to sing Amazing Grace when traveling in the car. He had other favorite songs as well. On one vacation to the Virgin Islands, we had the chance to sail on a small sailboat used in the filming of an old Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly film. The boat was named TRUE LOVE. This inspired Norm to often sing the song “True Love” that Bing Crosby sang on that boat, and it became our song. While I give to you and you give to me True love, true love So on and on, it will always be True love, true love for you and I have a guardian angel on high, with nothing to do but to give to you and to give to me Love forever true, Love forevermore. We will miss Norm’s cheerful, happy greetings, his spark of optimism, his testimony, and mostly his love. A funeral service will be held Friday, September 24th at 607 E. Rocky Mouth Lane, Draper, Utah, with a viewing at 10:00 a.m. and the funeral service beginning at 11:00 a.m. Interment to follow at Mt. Olivet Cemetery.
