Bryan Alan Crowder, 52 of Jones Creek, Texas passed away unexpectedly Sunday, July 29, 2012 surrounded by his loving family. He was born March 27, 1960 in Galveston, Texas to William Frank Crowder and Catherine Henderson Crowder.
Bryan graduated from La Marque High School in 1978 and attended Sam Houston State University. He was a past member of the Freeport Jaycees and a charter member of the 400 Club. His hobbies included cooking with the Circle B Cookers bar-b-que team and driving his golf cart through the neighborhood visiting with friends. Bryan enjoyed living on the Brazos River and especially enjoyed watching his sons and their friends fishing and boating on the river. He also enjoyed his Styrofoam cup drink with “antioxidants.” Bryan worked in sales for various heavy equipment rental companies throughout Texas and was presently employed by Texas Gulf Refrigeration (TGR) in Angleton. Bryan never met a stranger and has a host of friends, which is evident by the love and support shown to his family during this difficult time.
