LCC Retirement: Ed Crawford

Lamar Community College President John Marrin presents retiring staff member Ed Crawford with a plaque, lifetime membership to the LCC Fitness Center, letter of congratulations from the Governor, and other presents from LCC staff and faculty.

Lamar Community College recently honored Ed Crawford for his ten years of service as a custodian as he retired from the college. During that time he served in the Trustees and Bowman Buildings, taking the time to give an encouraging word to students and faculty who crossed his way. As a lifelong learner, Crawford also took evening classes while employed at LCC. His last day at the college was Tuesday, January 31. Like many people, Crawford had multiple occupations during his ‘work life,’ including 20 years of service in the United States Air Force, where he was an aircraft maintenance mechanic. Crawford served in England, Korea and several months in Thailand during the Vietnam Conflict when he worked predominately with the F-4 fighter jets. Following his retirement from the Air Force, Crawford worked in the private sector for various companies as an aircraft maintenance mechanic. Fifteen years later, Crawford once again retired. It was family that brought Crawford to Lamar and employment at the college.
