Lou Crow

Louis Walter Crow
Lou Crow was a four-year boy from Illinois who, like many of us, returned to his roots after graduating. He was an athlete, if not a scholar, and a popular classmate who you could not miss on campus, i.e. a "BMOC". To my regret, I lost track of one of the most colorful personalities in the Class when we dispersed in 1969. I've added a page in his honor at Albany Road Redux for anyone who would like to share recollections about "The Gawk". I found the obituary below after reading of his passing in the most recent issue of Deefield Magazine. The Alumni Office kindly supplied the photo from The Pocumtuck at my request.

Louis Crow, 61, of Northbrook, formerly Evanston, passed away June 22, 2012. Son of the late Rollin and Elizabeth Crow; brother of David (Marilyn) Crow; uncle of three nieces and six great-nieces and nephews. His kind nature and sense of humor will always be remembered. Memorial Service Thursday, June 28 at 1:30 p.m. at N.H. Scott & Hanekamp Funeral Home, 1240 Waukegan Rd. (just south of Lake Ave. on west side), Glenview. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Evanston Animal Shelter, 2310 Oakton St., Evanston, IL, 60202.
