Obituary for Leonard L. Crosson
Crosson, Leonard Lawrence 'Swede', age 73 of Denver. Leonard was born November 8, 1940 to Leonard P. and Lillian Crosson in Denver, CO. He graduated from South High School and attended Colorado State University. His first career was in the sheet metal industry. After his retirement from that, he started his own residential home inspection company, High Teck Home Inspections. He closed that business approximately five years ago. Larry is survived by his wife, Jane; his children: Leonard C. Crosson (Penny), Marshall Crosson (Julie), Richele Crosson, and Michele Crosson; his grandchildren: Krista Fowler (Travis), Leonard Crosson, Jr. and Jeffrey Crosson; his great-grandchildren: Jasmine and Gavin; and his sister, Flora J. Heffner (Dwight). Larry is a member of Georgetown Masonic Lodge, Oriental Chapter #98, Order of Eastern Star, and El Jebel Shrine. He was an avid member of El Jebel’s Dune Buggy Patrol for many years. He was the “Go To Guy” for refurbishing and repairing the Volkswagen dune buggies, completely rebuilding and refiberglassing his last buggy. He participated in more parades than one person should be expected to see in a lifetime, but enjoyed the fellowship and friendships within the group. He sold his buggy three years ago, not being able to get in and out of it easily due to his knees. Larry could fix anything! He once said he liked to take things apart just to see how to put them back together. He and his father built his parents’ cabin, along with his at the family’s mountain ranch above Evergreen. He was a great auto mechanic, HVAC “guy”, and enjoyed remote-controlled airplanes, collecting state quarters and puttering in his “garage-mahal”. Larry was a member of South Suburban Christian Church since 1995. His health declined the last few years, preventing him from doing the things he enjoyed. His death was caused by the progression of Parkinson’s’ disease.
