Lorain “Junie” Crump Jr. went peacefully to be in the arms of his mother and father on February 24, 2012 at approximately 6 a.m. with his family by his side. Junie was a blessing from the time he was born May 15, 1949 to Lorain (Chick) Crump and Doris Hart Crump and remained a blessing all his adult life. He was the purest of pure while amongst us on this earth.
He leaves behind to mourn him his sister and her husband, Cindy and Phil Dunfee of Leon with whom he made his home; his sisters, Tammy (Jerry) Fillinger and Shirley (Randall) Woodall of Point Pleasant; a brother, Verlin (Sampy) (Dottie) Hart of Leon; also surviving are an uncle, aunts, nieces, nephews and a host of cousins. Also left behind to miss him is Harley, the family dog, whom would lay for hours by Junie’s bedside. Harley was his bodyguard.
He was preceded in death by his parents Lorain (Chick) Crump and Doris Hart Crump and a brother, Jeff Allen Crump. His passing has left a void never to be replaced.
A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, February 26, 2012, at Forest Hills Cemetery, Flatrock, with Pastor Bob Patterson, officiating. There will be no visitation.
At this time, the family would like to thank Pleasant Valley Hospice, Alicia Tucker, Martha Roush, Tia Wooten, Dawn Hill and Debbie Monson, also Dr. Nancy Lares, Pam and Holly and a special thank you to the employees of Medi Home Care (John Kearns) who knew what it meant when family came first. You couldn’t be in Junie’s presence and not be humbled and he will be missed more than one can imagine.
Junie’s care has been entrusted to Crow-Hussell Funeral Home, Point Pleasant. An online registry is available at www.crowhussellfh.com
