Marshall Cole Craw
Marshall Cole Craw, of Chelan, WA, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Monday, June 25, 2012. Marshall was born in Columbus, OH, in 1959. He was the third child born to Warren and Esther Craw of Upper Arlington, OH. A 1978 graduate of Upper Arlington High School, he followed his siblings to San Diego, CA, where he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering. After working for the Burroughs Corporation and Unisys, he moved to the Seattle area to be closer to his beloved sister and the mountains, where he loved to hike and climb. It was there, that he met the love of his life, Jacqueline Guichard, whom he married on July 11, 1992, in North Bend, WA. They were blessed with the arrival of their children, Eric in 1994, and Ondra in 1996. He treasured his family, spending his time trying to make a better place for them. Marshall moved his family to the Chelan, WA area in 1999, for the community, the weather and the opportunities. He and Jackie immediately became very involved in the church they loved, Little Stone Church, and in 4-H with their children in the Manson Sunsetters 4-H Club. In 2004, he founded Rabbit Meadows Technology, a wireless internet provider in the Chelan area. He loved being able to provide his customers with what he believed to be a crucial service, when they would otherwise be without.
He follows his parents, Warren and Esther Craw; and his eldest brother, Paul Craw, to Heaven. He is survived by his beloved, Jackie and their children, Eric and Ondra Craw; his sisters, Carol Cannell of Winter Springs, FL and Lana Waud of North Bend, WA, and their families; as well as too many of Jackie’s family to list here.
A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, July 6, 2012, at 4:00 p.m. at the Northshore Bible Church in Manson, WA. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Marshall Craw Children’s College Fund at Cashmere Valley Bank in Chelan. Services have been entrusted to Precht Rose Chapel, Chelan.
