Lee W. McCrory left this life on 18 July 2015 as quietly and gently as he lived it.  He was born on 15 November 1919 in rural Crawford County near Annapolis as the 6th  oldest of twelve children to Burt and Amy Cruse McCrory.  He lived his life with love and faith in God, and he cherished and protected his family and his country. A WW II veteran, he served in the U. S. Navy in the Pacific Theater as a Radarman 3rd class, aboard the aircraft carrier USS Corregidor (CVE58).  A man of few words, he always spoke with humility, compassion, kindness, and humor. He worked and retired from L.S. Heath and Sons after 40 years of service and for much of that time he was known to many in Robinson as their house-to-house milkman. He was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church in Robinson for more than 70 years.

He was pre-deceased by his parents, nine siblings, wife Clara Maxine Bryan McCrory, and wife Ruby White Paddock McCrory.  He is survived by his daughter Sandra McCrory Nye (George) of Medford OR and son Donald McCrory (Pam) of Chesapeake VA.  He is also survived by sister Mary Helen Nave Williams (Don), brother Ralph McCrory (Caroline), step-daughters Joyce Paddock and Judy Paddock Berger (George), step-son Steve Paddock (Linda); four grandchildren, Dustin McCrory, Donna McCrory Goff (Brian), Michael Nye, Linda Nye Tripp (Andy); four great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends at the Pulliam Funeral Home on West Main, Robinson on 21 July from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM.  The funeral service will be conducted at Pulliam Funeral Home on 22 July at 2:00 PM with Bro. Randy Nave and Pastor Trey Reid officiating. Burial will follow at the Mount Pleasant cemetery, Annapolis, IL.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to the First Baptist Church, Robinson.

The family would like to thank the Staff and Residents at Timber Creek assisted living facility for making Lee’s final few years much more pleasant, comfortable and sociable than living alone would have been.

Heaven gained a true Angel. We will miss you in this life but we know you are near your Lord and God and all pain is gone. Lee was truly the sweetest man I knew with a heart full of compassion.

I loved that you used the word gentle so often in reference to your father. He was a man small in stature but a true gentle giant and a wonderful, shining example of Christ in everything he did and said. He will be missed by so many but especially by your family. But what wonderful memories for you all! God give you all peace.
