Obituary

Obituary for Vincent Thomas Crosby Jr.

Vincent Thomas Crosby, Jr. of Warminster, PA passed away March 27, 2020. He was born July 5, 1932, in Brownsville, PA to the late Vincent, Sr. and Anna (Kane) Crosby. He resided in Warminster, PA
for 57 years.

Vince is survived by his loving wife, Mary Rose (Adzentoivich), with whom he celebrated their 57th Wedding Anniversary last July. They still own the 1961 Mercury convertible they drove to their Miami Beach Honeymoon in. He was the devoted father to Linda Madara (Thomas), Bridget Fox (Steven), Mary McAnally (James), Kelly Roberts (Robert) and his son, Vincent Thomas Crosby, III, who preceded him in death. Vince adored his grandchildren Matthew McAnally, Kathryn Fox, Jamie McAnally and William Fox. He was proud to be their Poppy. He is survived by a beloved sister, Jane Wonderlick (Richard) and his best friend and brother, Joseph (Frances) preceded him in death. He loved his many nieces and nephews and enjoyed getting together with everyone for reunions at Knoebels Groves every year.

Vince was a hard-working man. For many years he worked 6-day weeks at SPS Technologies in Jenkintown, PA until his retirement in 1994 after 37-years. Despite the heat and noise of the steel foundry he enjoyed the people he worked with and he was proud of their work designing and manufacturing aerospace products. He was known to point to overhead jets and talk about the pieces SPS made that allowed them to fly and, like his father and son, Vince was a highly-skilled mechanic. There wasn’t an engine made that the 3 Vince’s couldn’t tear apart and put back together again.

Vince was a family man who enjoyed raucous family dinners with “my girls,” their husbands and grandchildren. He was a master storyteller and enjoyed conversations with anyone. Like Yeats, he believed, “There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met.” He enjoyed telling stories of the good-old-days - especially his time in the military, swimming in the family pool, hunting, fishing, going for walks, working on cars, and shooting darts. He was an animal lover, a proud U.S. Army Veteran who served during the Korean War and a devout Catholic and active member of Nativity of Our Lord Parish for 57-years. He was so much more than this obituary can say and will be sorely missed. Family get-togethers will be a paler version of what they once were. “Our memories of our loved ones are the pearl we form around the grain of grief that causes us pain.” (J. Zentner) “May the sun shine warm upon your face, Vince, and until we meet again may the Lord hold you in the palm of his hand.”

A Mass of Christian Burial and graveside services will be announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the SPCA or The Wounded Warriors Project.
