Mr. Perry Cameron Crowell, Jr., 76, of Salisbury, passed away Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at Novant Health Rowan Medical Center. He was born on August 4, 1943 to the late Perry Cameron Crowell, Sr. and Exie Fogleman Crowell. Preceding him in death in addition to his parents were his sisters Phylis Crowell Allman (and husband Cecil), and Sara Crowell Barber (and husband James). “Pete,” as he was commonly known, was a 1961 graduate of Boyden High School in Salisbury, NC. He served in the United States Army as a E-4 Radar Repairman at Fort MacArthur from 1962 to 1965. Survivors are his devoted wife Lexie Trexler Crowell whom he married September 25, 1965; his son Christopher Lee Crowell, wife Angela Sharon Piatt of Salisbury; grandsons Justin Derek Crowell of Durham, Joseph Cameron Crowell of Salisbury, and Brandon Taylor Morgan of Cleveland; sisters Joyce Crowell Hartman and Judy Crowell Beacham, of Salisbury. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews he loved dearly and enjoyed helping throughout his life. Home from the Army, Pete went to work for Fiber Industries, Inc, retiring after a 30 year career. He also worked for Freightliner and the City of Salisbury early in his retirement. He had a lifelong love of do it yourself projects, and enjoyed reading do it yourself manuals. He also loved reading and watching science fiction, going to auctions, shopping at SEARS, and had a knack for finding that perfect gift for his wife or his son. “PawPaw Pete” loved taking his family to the North Carolina coast to go fishing and enjoy local shops and restaurants. His love for animals was unparalleled, with literally dozens rescued and cared for over his life. He always had a subscription to Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, Salisbury Post, bought Charlotte and Greensboro papers every Sunday, and watched the news daily along with shows like Star Trek (original series), Muppet Show, Looney Tunes, M*A*S*H, Sanford and Son, Wild Kingdom, and Cosmos. He provided a safe, loving home for his family and was always there to help. Pete was cremated with the assistance of Summersett Funeral Home of Salisbury, and will await interment at the Salisbury National Cemetery with a service at North Main Baptist Church at a later time once loved ones can safely gather to celebrate his life. Memorials in his name can be made to North Main Baptist Church or the Humane Society of Rowan County.
