    Como Crouch has been a great mentored many of Auxiliarist in D8CR. His continuing leadership will be greatly missed.

  4. Curtis and Marcia Low says:

    Commodore Crouch was the nicest “crotchidy” gentleman that we ever knew. In spite of his gruffy exterior he really was a teddy bear. We remember in particular his demeanor when he returned from touring Katrina after the hurricane. He was quite visibly shaken. Our sincere sympathy to B.J. and family.
