Albert Clay Crowder Jr.
Maiden Name: n/a
Albert Clay Crowder Jr. passed away August 17, 2004, in Billings, Montana. He was the beloved son of Verdie May Flowers Crowder Coffey and the late Albert Clay Crowder. He was born September 4, 1947, in Ashdown, Arkansas, and grew to be a tall man like most of the Crowder men, but was a gentle person, slow to anger.
He was a Vietnam veteran who served his country proudly and followed in the footsteps of his father and uncles, all World War II veterans. His grandfathers were the late Bolden Crowder and John F. Crowder, a veteran of World War I. He was proud of his Choctaw and Cherokee heritage and loved Montana because he felt at home in the wilderness, a true American Indian.
Survivors include his daughter, Tammy Crowder of Sacramento, California; son, Albert Clay Crowder III of Billings; his mother; two brothers, Billy Bob Cordes and Theodore R. Coffey Jr.; four sisters, Ollie Mae (Vicky) Church, Betty Sue Baines, Vickie Sue Stokes and Mary Catharine Crowder.
