    He was born in Independence, Iowa on Dec. 2, 1930, the son of Roy & Opal (Creson) Crump. On Feb. 24, 1963, he was united in marriage to Mary Jean Hays in Seaton.
    During the Korean Conflict, he served in the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged from active duty as a Corporal in 1953.
    Billy was employed as a supervisor for the Alcoa Company, retiring in 1989 after 40 years of faithful service.

    Billy was an accomplished woodworker, an avid reader and a loyal fan of Iowa Hawkeye Wrestling. His family, especially his grandchildren were the love of his life and although they will miss him, his memory will live forever in the hearts of those who knew & loved him.
