He told stories from his time in Cairo, Egypt and other parts of the world. He knew one French sentence and it translated to “pass the salt, please.” He married his sweetheart and had kids and one day found a little group of people meeting at an old empty gas station across from the hospital that was being used as a church.. and he met the Lord at that little assembly and he served the Lord the rest of his life. The last thing he said was that he wanted a closer walk with Jesus. He had a sense of humor and wasn’t afraid to use it. He was always pointing people to trust the Lord for their heart and soul and he never gave up on people. He was generous to a fault. He loved to talk, fish, cook, and grow things. When he would greet you, he’d ask if you were “doing a hundred?” If you asked him how he was, he would say “I’ve got no complaints.” His favorite movie was The Apple Dumpling Gang; he loved Red Skelton and Barney from Andy Griffith and Snuffy Smith from the comics. He loved a good story and a good laugh. He loved his family and he loved people and he loved God.  Mr. Crisp is survived by his daughter, Sandra Martin and her husband, Eddie Martin; his daughter, Bonnie Eshelman and her husband, Milton Eshelman; one son, David M. Crisp; five grandchildren, John David Eshelman and his wife, Lonna; Ashley Nicole Crisp, Angelina Smith, Amanda Smith, David Smith; two great grandchildren, Hannah Eshelman and Zachary Eshelman and his wife, Amanda.
