Garrett Ray Crowe

Garrett Ray Crowe, age 27, passed away unexpectedly Friday, March 8, 2019.  He was born in Waukegan, IL on August 19, 1991, son to Tera (Jeremy) Clark and Garry Crowe.  
Garrett was an amazing artist and musician.  He was passionate about music, self-taught, he loved playing bass, guitar and writing lyrics.  He found joy in traveling, making friends, being silly and embraced new experiences.  Garrett was a member of the North Point Church, where he was baptized and accepted the Lord into his life.  He had an aura that drew people to him, no matter where he went.  His ability to listen and engage with people from every walk of life was inspiring.  
Garrett had an incredible and unique style that was every bit his own.  He was a free spirit, expressing himself and his world through artistic avenues.  He loved his tattoos and music, letting them tell his story.  He never got caught up in any stereo type or conforming to any image, he just stayed true to being who he was.  It was that ability that allowed him to connect with so many, making others feel understood and him being a safe place for so many.

“…at the end of the day, life is sic.  Family is sic.  Having friends is sic.  Just being alive is sic.  Find the most simple things in life and appreciate that.”   - Garrett Crowe, December 24, 2018
