Lenard Douglas Crogh, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, entered his heavenly rest on Tuesday, July 28, at his home in Stratford.
Lenard was born on October 27, 1943, in Sacramento, California, to Peter Harris and Berniece Marion (Brazeale) Crogh.
Lenard married Mary Anna Abbott on November 8, 1963, in Lincoln, California. They had four children, Julie Anna, Deborah Lynn, Timothy Douglas and Ronda Dianne.
Lenard pastored 12 churches in 4 different states, ministered to thousands of people, and was an encouragement to everyone he met. He was an excellent mechanic, seasoned truck driver, avid fisherman, ham radio operator and faithful friend. He loved to fix everything from radios to heavy equipment. His passion was sharing the love of Jesus, and he treated everyone he met with kindness and compassion. His booming voice, gentle spirit, sense of humor and amazing personality will be missed greatly by his family and all who knew him.
