Our memory

To the family & loved ones Joe Crow
He will always be our brother of The USAFSS.
He has had & always will have a place in our hearts. He was light hearted with a great sense of humor & provided us with a joy that was heart felt. We always knew what was most important in his life & how much he loved those things. His God & family was no. One & we all knew how proud he was of his family. His love for his country was equal to his love of Ky. & especially The Wildcats. His love was surely given to our USAFSS GROUP & helped to form a bond of brotherhood that would keep us together. To say he was proud & true in life is an under statement
Through the faith we all have we are assured that his soul is with our Leader our coach Our God.
We also are assured that Joe’s family will carry on with with the passion & love that Joe exemplified to them, and us.
Our love to all Joe’s family
Keith & Reene Kooh
USAFSS & Brother in Christ
