On August 20, 2021, Heavenly Father summoned a true hero back home. William Maurice Crosby, better known as Billy or Sergeant Crosby, fought his last battle with illness and peacefully passed away with his loving family at his side. Billy was born on March 3, 1971 to William (Bob) and Karen Crosby. He grew up in Alton, Ut. He has 5 siblings, Eva (Dirk) Durfey, Gwen (Mike) Duffy, Wendy (Bert) Harris, Charles (Heidi) Crosby and Kenneth Crosby. Never able to have a child of his own, Billy poured his love into his nieces and nephews. They adored him. Billy served a 2 year mission for the LDS church in the state of Oklahoma. On December 7, 2013 he married his soul mate, Terri Crosby. She was the love of his life. He would light up every time when she walked into the room.
Billy liked playing baseball; he was a great pitcher! He like hunting, listening to music, being out in the hills, cooking out, being with family, and, most of all, spending time with his wife.
For 22 years, Billy dedicated his life to the Kanab Police Department as an officer and to Kane County as a medical examiner. He was a humanitarian and loved serving his community and the people of Kanab. He treated people with dignity, kindness and respect. He found good in every person he met. He touched the lives of many people in Kanab and in turn earned their respect. We will forever be proud of him for his service. We love you Billy and will miss you like crazy, until we see you again!
Services for Billy will be held on Friday, August 27, 2021 at 2:00 PM at the North Event Center, 475 East State Street, Orderville, Utah (located on the west side of highway 89 between Orderville and Glendale, Utah.) Burial will be in the Kanab Cemetery following services. Arrangements were made with Mosdell Mortuary.
