In 1983, he met his wife Elizabeth Uwagbai, dated for a year and got married in 1984. The Lord bledded the Uwagbai couple with four children. Crosby was a devoted husband who loved his family. He was a gentl and humble man who accomodated people to the best of his abilities. He will be remembered as a hard-working, strong, loving, resilient and determined man who took pleasure in positively impacting the lives of people around him, especially children who were less privileged.

His art programs kept kids out of drugs and gangs, and plenty of the kids (who are adults now) can attest to the facts.

The pivotal moments of his life were not centered on himself, but on his children's success.

He is survived by his loving wife, Elizabeth, and his children, Frederick, Charles, Stephanie and Sarah.

He went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, August 8, 2023. Rather than mourn his death, he would like for everyone to celebrate his life and legcay.
