John Crawford, RVT  (1962 - 2016)

   John was born in Illinois and moved to North Carolina in 1981.  He earned his degree in Hotel Management in 1983 and Veterinary Medical Technology in 1995. John joined our hospital in 1998 as a Registered Technician and soon wore “many hats” behind the scenes doing Inventory Management, Bookkeeping, IT, and any handy-man job we threw his way.

   Our dear friend and coworker John was diagnosed with ALS in January of 2014. Shortly after his health deteriorated quickly and he was no longer able to continue working.  John was such a big part of the Brevard Animal Hospital family, he did so much for us, we think of his contributions daily. It is with our deepest condolences that we tell you, John Crawford was called home Saturday, March 26th, 2016 after living with ALS for over 2 ½ years.

  John left behind his very strong & supportive wife, Heather, who was a past veterinary assistant with us. They have two adorable and loving sons, Erik and Jason. We are comforted in knowing that John had a wonderful, and we mean WONDERFUL support system at home and through the community, as well as a strong conviction of faith.

   Much love to John Crawford & family
