He leaves behind his mother in Cameron Park; his brother, Alan of El Dorado; and his sister, Laura of Tuxedo, N.Y. John is also survived by his two sons, Jeremy Crawford of Sacramento and Joshua Crawford of Livermore; three grandchildren; his dear friend, Jo Ellen Xavier; and many loving friends, relatives and coworkers.
