Thomas "Jay" Crowther

Thomas “Jay” Crowther, 82, was called home on October 2, 2023, by his Father in heaven and into the loving arms of his father Loren Don, mother Laura Della, and twin sister Joy Crowther. He was the third born of ten children including one set of twins and one set of triplets in Fountain Green, Utah. Jay comes from a proud history of sheepherders from Fountain Green, Utah.

 

As a young man, he served in the Army at Fort Bragg North Carolina in the 16th Court Artillery Squad. He shot the “big guns.” After his service, he began his career with the Rio Grande Railroad, where he worked as a brakeman for over thirty years and could often be seen hanging off the back of the train swinging the railroad lantern. Jay was forever a cowboy and loved his cowboy boots and giant silver belt buckle. Jay cherished his heritage coming from a family of sheep herders. Late in life, Jay was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis which robbed him of his strength but not his will and spirit, his strength grew as a support to his siblings, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and was the true example of strength to his family.

 

Jay is preceded in death by his father, Loren Don Crowther, mother, Laura Della (Rosquist) Crowther, and twin sister Margaret Joy Crowther.

 

He is survived by his three children, Todd Jay (Karen) Crowther, Teri Rae (Richard) Daynes, Derrick Grant (Angelia) Crowther, and two bonus children he loved as his own, Theresa (Adan) Garcia, and Shari Watson. He was blessed with nineteen grandchildren and thirty-one great-grandchildren. 

 

The family is requesting a donation to the Idaho-Nevada-Utah National Multiple Sclerosis Foundation in lieu of flowers to support research, those fighting MS, and help make a difference.
