A native of Dassel, MN, and graduating from Dassel High in 1949, Jim was a geophysicist.
A man of nine lives, he survived: a forest fire, an airplane crash in the Antarctic, a motorcycle accident in Bermuda, the ‘71 California Earthquake, Hurricane Katrina, a tornado, and the 2020 Pandemic. With NAVOCEANO, he traveled to all seven continents, Easter Island, and many Polynesian islands.
His motto at church was, "if you can't sing good, sing loud." His motto in life was, “never do today what you can put off until tomorrow.” He practiced what he preached until death. His hobbies included conversing with phone scammers, sharing his MAGA wisdom, and drinking with chickens.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Nancy Ann Drager Crowe; children, Michael P. (Stephanie) Crowe, Denise (Tim) Steil, Ann Early, and Amy (Keith Marchant) Crowe; numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and a great great-grandchild; siblings, Tom (Janice) Crowe, Sue Scherr, and Mary (Gene) Meshbane; numerous nieces and nephews, including Laura Champ, Jerry Crowe, Ruthie Hansen, Paul Crowe, Jenny Lambreght, Tim Crowe, Jill Crowe, and David Crowe.
