Obituary of James N. Crawford
James “Jim” N. Crawford, 74, of Rome, passed away peacefully on April 20, 2023, at Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare Center, with his family by his side.
He was born November 23, 1948, in Rome, a son of the late Samuel and Doris McCall Crawford, and graduated from Rome Free Academy. Jim was united in marriage to the former Sandra Samson, on March 10, 1979, in St. Peter’s Church. He drove Tractor Trailer for Syracuse Castings for many years until his retirement. He served in the U.S. Navy.
