J.E. Crawford, Prominent Littleton Business Man, Dies From Heart Trouble
Jackson E. Crawford, for the past forty years identified with the business interests of Littleton passed away at St. Lukes Hospital in Denver Wednesday. He had been in ill health for some time having been afflicted with heart trouble. "Jack" as he was known by most of the residents of this district, was born in Guttenburg, Iowa, 57 years ago. He came to Littleton in 1883 and has resided in or near Littleton ever since. In the early days he was in the saloon business but later bought a ranch east of Wolhurst upon which he lived until the time of his death. In June 14, 1899 he was married to Miss Laura Lane, to which union was born one son, Frank. He was much interested in livestock always, having owned some very fine blooded race horses. He was formerly a member of the Littleton Hose Company and was always identified with the progressive movements in Littleton. Mr. Crawford was one of the biggest open hearted men that ever lived. He was true blue to his friends and a man whose heart always went out to those in need. He did many acts of kindness to people of which the public little knew and he will be sadly missed by those whose good fortune it was to know him. He is survived by his wife and son Frank, and a half brother in Minnesota. At the time of going to press the funeral arrangements had not been definitely made but the interment will be in the Littleton cemetery. The funeral will be held either Sunday or Monday, announcement of which will be made later.
