Al was always my go-to guy whenever I needed help with a truck. Always there to lend a hand. He would go out of his way to strike up a conversation whenever I seen him. Truly one of the last old school mechanics that could fix anything he had in front of him and a genuinely good person. From all of us at Kirby's were thinking of your family. Rest in peace Al.

I am very sad to hear of my cousin Allan Crum passing.  He was one of 32 Crum cousins and very much loved by all of us.  I can still feel his hug he gave me at one of the Crum reunions in Barnesville Ohio.  I know he will be greatly missed by his wife Rachel and his children, Brent, Valerie and Cheryl and all of his grandchildren. RIP Allan ...you are with your mom and dad again.  Until we meet again..lv u Linda

I can't say enough about what a good man AL was. He always had a smile for you and a goodwilled  nature about himself.  Always willing to help out (as he did my family many times) and was just such a selfless human being. His loving and giving personality and demenor comes through in those he loved. That's the legacy of a truly great man.
"God saw him getting tired, a cure not meant to be, so he put his arms around him and whispered come with me" I pray God's comfort and healing for Al's family. Love you all.

AL was a friend of mine through Don Lauer. I knew AL since about 2002, when I moved to Ohio. He was one of my first friends out here, and he was one of the nicest people I ever met. Even though we only visited rarely, I always felt like he was a very good friend, and always greatly enjoyed visiting with him.  He was a wonderful and kind man, and he will be greatly missed by so many.  He probably didn't know it, but he was a blessing in my life, at a time when I had very few friends. My prayers go out to you, his family, during this very difficult time. God bless you all. Sincerely, Jess Hilliard
