He left behind the love of his life his wife of 46 years, Brenda (Hunter) Crowell and two daughters who thought he hung the moon; Casey Crowell and Marjoe Crowell Sweat; a son-in-law Jason Sweat; his beloved brother Cliff Crowell; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents Charles and Jean (Howze) Crowell and a brother Curtis Crowell.

Willis was a very hard worker and a righteous man who taught others how to laugh when things got tough. A musician through and through, Willis dedicated his life and heart to his music and his family. Willis worked for the Sebastian County Housing Authority for twenty-three years as a Housing Inspector. A true renaissance man, he loved the arts and excelled at wood carving, songwriting, and playing several instruments. He never saw a person in need that he didn’t help. He lived a life full of richness and was a truly unique individual who loved his wife and two daughters.

He was loved by so many being known as a great man who was honest and wise beyond his years. Here’s to you Willis! Enjoy your adventure. See you soon. Cheers in heaven.
