George Thomas Crawley, Jr. age 70, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family and friends at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20, 2022, at INOVA Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, VA.
He was born on January 29, 1952, in Philadelphia, PA to the late George Thomas Crawley, Sr. and Fannie Eleanor (Jackson) Crawley.
He was a proud Philadelphian, who loved his family, city, and sports teams, especially the Eagles. He was also a proud father and grandfather, a caring brother, a true and steadfast friend, and a devoted partner. He was generous, kindhearted, and endlessly positive and upbeat.
He had a keen mind and a wicked sense of humor; he would frequently refer to himself as a comic genius and he truly was. He loved all kinds of music, especially Motown and classic rock. He loved westerns and most especially The Magnificent Seven because, as he would say, there are so many lines in that movie that apply to life. He was the very best storyteller. He was gregarious and yet a very private person. He was the most generous person I know.
Survivors include his loving partner of 17 years, Tina Berger; one son, Geoffrie Crawley and wife Dawn; three grandchildren: Annie, Jackson, and Maxwell; seven siblings: Geraldine, Mike, Patricia, Anthony, Diane, Donna, and Gregg. Also surviving are a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, cousins, and extended family.
The family is requesting, in lieu of flowers, that donations be sent to Julia R. Masterman Laboratory and Demonstration School, where George attended as a young man. Donations can be made via the Masterman School Foundation to support scholarship funds and/or capital improvement. All donations to the Foundation are tax deductible as charitable donations.
Checks can be sent to: The Masterman School Foundation, c/o J.R. Masterman Laboratory & Demonstration School, 1699 Spring Garden Street, Philadelphia, A 19130

I was very saddened to her of George’s passing:(. I had the pleasure of meeting him many years ago and he most definitely had an awesome sense of humor and a passion for sports. My thoughts go out to his direct family and close friends.
