“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Joseph Thomas Crowley, 69, of Palm Harbor, Fla., and Elizabethton, Tenn., passed away on July 17, 2022 in Florida.

Joseph was a sailor, fisherman, artist, and musician. He had wisdom and knowledge about many things. He was slow to speak and quick to listen. He had a quiet, gentle spirit. He found beauty and appreciation in the little things. He gave generously to anyone with less, without expecting anything in return. He was humble and appreciative of even the smallest things. He loved God and people. He was a true follower of Christ. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control describe him well. Joseph will be missed so much.
