On Thursday, May 21, 2020, Kenneth M. Crawford passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family at the age of 70. He was preceded in death by his father, Edwin H. Crawford; his grandmother, Ruth Zeh; grandfather, Lawrence Zeh; and brother-in-law, Donald Power. He leaves behind his mother, Joyce J. Crawford; sister, Kathleen Power; and his niece, Kristy Rainer (Jimmy). Also survived by his great nieces and nephews: Morgan (Sheila), Joshua, Logan, Hunter, Ryder, Adalie, and Donald Asher.
Kenneth was a brilliantly talented local artist who got his start painting in Jackson Square. He then went forward to do painting for Shell Oil corporate offices and the New Orleans Fairgrounds where his paintings were proudly displayed until the fire. His artwork was featured in many galleries in the city and on the PBS art auctions. His work was published in the Lawyers Journal and many other print publications. Kenny lived every day to the fullest as if every day was a new party. He loved his family and loved his beloved dogs, Zeh and Leisel, as if they were his children.
Our beloved Kenny will be missed and he would want us to celebrate and not mourn. In lieu of flowers, donations to the cancer foundations or Alzheimer’s research foundations would be appreciated.
