Bill, known as "Pap" to family members, was born July 9th, 1932, in Lamar, Arkansas, to Lizzie Caroline Davis and Russell George Crowder. A quiet, unassuming man, Bill was very respected for his hard work, love of God and family.
He moved to Fort Worth, Texas as a young teenager, where he met his wife of 33 years, Barbara Joe Warren. The family with their three children moved to Weatherford over fifty years ago.
Bill Crowder has been a building contractor for over forty years. Over the course of his career, he built and renovated homes and commercial properties throughout the City of Weatherford, enriching our community through countless projects. He has been a faithful member of Grace Baptist Church for many years. His interest and business with antiques has been a lifelong passion. His many hobbies included rebuilding old trucks, playing poker and traveling the country for antiques.
Bill is survived by his children: Caroline Erzell Watson, of Austin, Texas; Billy Mack Crowder, Jr. and wife, Janis of Weatherford; and Bryan Matthew Crowder, of Weatherford. He is also survived by his friend and partner, Corky Hyatt, of Weatherford. Grandchildren: Barbara Watson, husband, Raj Desikan; Lauren Gist, husband, Kelson; Billy Mack Crowder III, wife, Shana; Brandon Crowder, wife, Chala; Margo Dunson, husband, Justen; Jarrod Crowder, wife, Jessica; Christopher Crowder and numerous great-grandchildren.

By God's grace, we had Bill Crowder for 87 years and his life made this world a better place.
