Mr. Edward Harmon Crosby was born to Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Crosby on January 13, 1939 in Newton County, MS. He lost his long, fierce battle to cancer on Thursday, July 25, 2019 at Bedford Care Nursing Home in Newton, MS. Visitation will be held on Saturday July 27, 2019 from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM and Sunday July 28, 2019 from 12:00 PM until 1:30PM. Funeral Services will be held Sunday July 28, 2019 at 2:00 PM at First Baptist Church of Lake, MS with burial to follow at Pine Ridge Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery. Brother Randall Creel, Brother Ken McLemore and Brother Jess Dilley will officiate with Brother Chris Spence as soloist.

Harmon was a lifelong resident of Newton, County. He loved life and never met a stranger. He never had a “bad” day and always saw the good in everyone he came in contact with. He loved the Lord and had a genuine love for his family, friends, church and community. He was a self-employed poultry farmer for 35 years. He served his church faithfully, as Sunday school teacher and a deacon. He was also a member of the Lake- Lawrence Lions Club. Over his lifetime, he earned the title of “Master Story Teller” and never missed an opportunity to tell a story or a joke. He was preceded in death by his father, Mr. Eugene Crosby and his mother, Mrs. Minnie Belle (Phillips) Crosby; brother, Mason (Dillard) Crosby; brother in laws Herman Lewis Gibbs and Bobby Leach. He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Patricia Mitchell Crosby , two sons; Kevin Crosby of Lake, MS. and Ken ( Bethany) Crosby of Lake, MS ; granddaughter, McKenzie Crosby of Lake, MS; grandson, Chris ( Paige ) Spence of Lake, MS; brother, Robert Lewis Crosby ( Faye) of Lake, MS; sister, Thelma Jean Leach of Lake, MS; sister, Patsy ( Bill) McDonald of Ludlow, MS; sister in law, Pauline Crosby of Lake, MS and a host of nieces and nephews.

Pallbearers will be Terry Crosby, Keith Gibbs, Jeff Mitchell, John Mitchell, Joey Mitchell, Davis Ross Mitchell, Eddie Stokes, Michael Wooten, Howard Mitchell, James Mitchell, Jason Mitchell, Mark Crosby and Justin Usry. Honorary Pallbearers, First Baptist Church Deacons. The family deeply appreciates the kindness shown to Harmon and his family by Bedford Care Center staff and Heartfelt Hospice during his battle with cancer. In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the First Baptist Church of Lake building fund. One of Harmons favorite quotes was “I’m doing good for an old man with a lot of miles.” He has taken his last mile on this old Earth into Heaven, and he is doing Great!

My deepest sympathy to the family of Mr. Harmon. I never had the honor of meeting him, but he must have been a great man. I i say this because I worked with Ken for 8 years and he is a great man, so the apple didn't fall far from the tree. I love all the Crosbys and am so very sorry to hear of Mr. Harmon's passing as I know we are never really ready to lose a parent, regardless of how old we get.
