William Crossley, Jr., age 88 of Langhorne, PA, passed away on Saturday, Dec. 25, 2021 at Oxford Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Langhorne, PA.

Born in Philadelphia, PA, Bill grew up in Philadelphia, and later was a longtime Levittown PA resident before moving to Langhorne PA in the beginning of the year.

Prior to his retirement he was employed as a Maintenance Engineer with Lower Bucks Hospital for many years before working for the Morrisville Presbyterian Towers.  He was a proud Navy Veteran, and a devoted member of the V.F.W.  He enjoyed listening to oldies music, watching movies and cowboy t.v. series, and being outside.  He particularly loved talking to friends and family.  He could carry a conversation, telling his stories about being in the Navy and about his life, and making jokes.  Bill knew what he wanted and had a strong will.  He was kind-hearted and generous to those he loved, always looking out for his family's welfare.

Bill was preceded in death by his father William Crossley, his mother Mary Crossley, brothers Samuel Anderson and Norman Anderson, sisters Elizabeth Lenux and Gertrude Kunkle, longtime companion Mary Dikun Andrews, and special friend Dolores Burton.  He is survived by his niece, Edith Baker, of Sicklerville, NJ
