James D. Crozier
1946 - 2019

James D. Crozier, 72, of Maryville, Missouri passed away on Thursday, March 7, 2019 at Mosaic Life Care in St. Joseph.

Jim was born on July 15, 1946 in Kansas City, Missouri to William D. and Euneta W. (Sloan) Crozier. He attended Horace Mann, Maryville High School, and graduated from Northwest Missouri State University.

He spent the first part of his career examining banks for the U.S. Treasury. Later, he taught business writing and public speaking around the world. A passionate Bearcat fan, he hosted tailgate parties before each Northwest home football game. Known for his prolific puns, humorous t-shirts and his “Cronak the Magnificent” routines, Jim loved to get a laugh or an eye-roll in response.

He is survived by his wife Brenda; three children, Lauree (Danny) Valverde, Golden, Colorado; Michael Crozier (Phoebe Owens), Portland, Oregon and Natalie Haynes of Colorado; brother, Ken (Cindy) Crozier, Morrisville, North Carolina and four grandchildren, Cassie, Ruby, Hank and Lily.

Mr. Crozier has been cremated under the care of Price Funeral Home, Maryville, Missouri. He requested no formal service, but asked that a tailgate-type party be held in his honor in July.

I was so sorry to learn of Jim's passing. Following the 1967-68 Phi Sig house fire, Jim and Ken asked their parents to open their home to provide me a place to stay for several weeks. I'll never forget their compassion. I only wish I would have found a way to stay in touch all of these years. However, Jim's always been present in my heart. May God's peace be with all of you. In Christ's love, Allen Stephens

Jim was a good Brother and sponsor for Northwest. Ann and I will miss the good times at his Homecoming Chilli Cookoff!

I have had the pleasure getting to know Jim over the past few years. he started out a customer of Northwest Audio Visual but quickly became one of our favorite customers. He would drop by periodically with a new sign he made or just some witty banter. I always enjoyed seeing the crowd huddled in his driveway on my way to work at home games and would sneak over when I had the chance. He was always so welcoming and quick to make me try whatever goods he had concocted. He was just one of those faces I expected to see and I certainly took that for granted. I hope his family members got to know the piece of Jim that I had the opportunity to meet. He is a good man and I hope we have the opportunity to cross paths someway somehow. Lots of love to those who are hurting. Rest easy.
