CRAFORD – Robert Michael Crawford, 88. Best be home lickity split when you heard his whistle. Bob was a no nonsense kind of dad. But, he was one of the beloved dads in the neighborhood; the one who took the time to tease all the kids. He looked around one day and saw lots of acreage and decided that his kids looked like they had some spare time on their hands. It was all put to good use with the advent of his Christmas tree farm. Summertime for planting and trimming; wintertime for cutting down and selling.
His house was next to the fire department alarm, so he figured besides sounding the alarm he might as well put out the fires too. Bob was the chief in Auburn for many years and even played Santa at the firehouse events. Some said he was close to a dollar unless it came to splurging on tools. “Don’t throw that out, I might need it someday!” you’d hear him exclaim about everything imaginable. His other expressions probably aren’t fit for polite company, but they’d make you smile. He was a chemical operator for DuPont; but even all that couldn’t keep him from being restless. Just for fun he’d go pump gas on the turnpike.
He is survived by his wife, Nancy. They were blessed by children: Stephen (Reggie), Reed (Irene), Jack (Zoeann), Susan (Mitchell) Press, Cindy Tempalski, Bernie Tempalski, Barbara Tempalski and Irene (Bill) Tempalski; and he’s survived by numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Interment Lake Park Cemetery, Swedesboro

LANGANELLA — Lois Ann Laganella, 71. She ran a tight ship for Dr. Dalsey for many years: seems Lois always had the answers. But, that’s probably because she was never a problem oriented person; solutions were her thing. And, regardless of how sick a patient might be, Lois’ smile would make them feel a little bit better. Her home was no different. Lois kept an open door policy: drop-ins always welcomed. Lolo could feed an army; no friend of Dave or Ken ever went hungry. Though their pride may have been somewhat damaged from Lois putting a beating on them in Pinochle. She became a member of the school board at the time the new grammar school was built and gave many ideas and time to that project: Logan Township recognized her service with a proclamation. She was a mainstay at Bethesda UM Church where she and Ray were songbirds in the choir.
Besides an education at South Philly High, she’d also meet a guy named Ray. Five years out of high school they’d marry and travel across the Cmdr. Barry to an unknown place called Logan Twp. Their 55 year union was blessed by sons David (Lisa) and Kenneth (Kim Potorti) and the joy of three grandchildren.
Donations to Bethesda UM Church, 1433 Kings Highway, Swedesboro 08085 will be appreciated. Tell a great story of Lolo at lifecelebrationstudio.com.
