January 5, 1947 - November 18, 2014
Born January 5, 1947 to Arthur B. and Rose Mueller Crouch in Dallas, Texas. He was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme IV (brain cancer) on June 29, 2014 and after a brief fight, entered into his Heavenly reward on November 18, 2014 at 3pm, the hour of Divine Mercy.
A lifelong resident of the Dallas area, he spent his life in the food service industry. Throughout his life he delivered bread, milk, ice cream, owned his own restaurant, and worked in food industry sales. Bob attended Catholic schools in Dallas and was a gentle example in his devotion to Christ, the saints, and he loved his church. He enjoyed blessing others with stories of faith and inspiration and had a way of sharing without preaching, often leaving people emotionally touched.
Bob loved spending time with his wife, Rae, more than anything in this world. She never stopped being his “girlfriend” and they were an example of a loving marriage to their children and friends. He enjoyed camping in Colorado for months at a time, going to Las Vegas or Choctaw with Rae, camper shows, working in the yard and going out to eat or “to the show” with his kids and grandkids.
Survived by his wife of 43 years, Rae Merle Smith Crouch, and sons Robert W. Crouch, Jr. & Richard Wayne (Michelle) Crouch, daughters Amy Christine Crouch Dorsey (Paul), and Raeanne Crouch. Grandchildren: Autumn Young, Daulton, & Victoria Crouch, Noah, Hanna, Leah & Ben Crouch, Hannah, Hilary, Grayson, & Sarah Dorsey. Great-grandsons J.D. & Ashton Richmond. Also survived by sister Darlene Crouch (Gayla), and brother Arthur B. Crouch, Jr. (Joella). Preceded in death by his father, mother and older brother.
Mass in Celebration of Life will be held Friday, November 21st at 1:30 pm at St. Joseph Catholic Church 600 S. Jupiter Rd., Richardson, TX 75081
