Christopher C. Crowl, 79, of Ridgefield and Groton Long Point, CT, passed away on March 16, 2020 at Danbury Hospital following a car accident in February.
Chris was born on January 5, 1941 in Wawa, PA to A. Roland and Audrey Walker Crowl. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Cheryl, his daughter, Jennifer of London, England and son and daughter-in-law, Christopher Jr. and April, of Durango, CO, and grandsons, Caven and Arii. He is also survived by his brother, Roland of Westchester, PA and sister, Cathy Kraft and her husband William of Berwyn, PA. Additionally, he is survived by brother- in- law James Bevis of Redondo Beach, CA and sister- in- law Beverly Bevis Jones of Stuart, FL, as well as nieces and nephews.
Chris grew up in Mendham and Far Hills, NJ and graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1964. He began his career as a technology salesman working for Xerox. After working in NJ and Stuart, FL, he moved with his wife and young family to Ridgefield in 1978. He worked with several companies selling computer based equipment and traveled extensively throughout the northeast and Canada to work with his clients.
Chris took his lifelong love of the stock market and turned it into a second career, when he opened the Edward Jones office in Ridgefield in 1994. He retired from Jones in 2005. Not content to sit at home, he worked part-time at the Apple Store at the Danbury Fair Mall, which again allowed him to work in an environment for which he had huge passion.
A member of the Men’s Club, Ed’s Bock Room Boys, Founder’s Hall, Masons and the First Congregational Church, Chris was also a supporter of Keeler Tavern Museum and History Center.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, September 12 at 1:00 PM at the First Congregational Church, Ridgefield and live streamed on the Zoom app to celebrate Chris. Remembrances in his name may be made to Keeler Tavern Museum and the First Congregational Church, both in Ridgefield.
