Claude Crosby, Sr. Obituary

Claude Neil Crosby Sr., affectionately known as Neil to his friends and family, left this world on February 21, 2024, in Florence, Mississippi at the age of 67. Born on March 18, 1956, in Canton, Mississippi. Neil was the very first baby to be born in Kings Daughters Hospital. Neil grew up with a vibrant spirit that would define his life's journey. His final days were spent surrounded by love in Florence, Mississippi, where he passed away peacefully. Neil's life was marked by the joy he found on the open road. For many years, he was a dedicated truck driver, a profession that allowed him to combine his love for his 18-wheeler with his passion for travel. His career took him across the country, where he made countless friends and memories. Family was the cornerstone of Neil's life. He was a beloved father to his sons, Micheal Shea Crosby, Joseph Scott Crosby, Nicholas Cole (Kimberly) Crosby. Claude Neil Crosby Jr. His love extended to his stepdaughters, Marie (Jr) Marceaux and Lena Jones. Neil's legacy continues through his grandchildren, Cole, Bentley, Archer, Mulisha, Danika, Vannessa, and Conner, who will carry forward his stories, values, and the warmth of his love. His role as a grandfather was one, he held with great pride and joy, always ready with a joke or a hug to brighten their days. Neil's siblings, Vickie (Ed) Toomb, Lester (Janice) Crosby, Frances (Mark) Dolan Sr., and John (Carey) Crosby, will remember him as a loving brother who brought laughter and guidance into their lives. The Crosby family gatherings were often filled with Neil's humor and kind-hearted teasing, creating memories that his siblings and their families will treasure forever. He was one of the kindest, hard-working men to ever walk this planet. He drove an 18-wheeler for Mr. Craig Zaunbrecher, his boss and dear friend in Crowley, LA. Neil's pride in his 18-wheeler was evident to all who knew him, as he maintained it with great care and often referred to it as his "second home." He loved driving his 18-wheeler to the bitter end. So next time you hear an 18-wheeler horn blow think of Claude Neil Crosby Sr. (AKA) EASY RIDER.
