From the 1953 Lucky Bag:


Fallbrook, California

A Navy junior from the sunny land of California, Glenn upheld the traditions of the family well. Coming via presidential appointment from Stanford, he brought a good football reputation with him, but plagued by injuries, he didn't earn his "Mighty Mites" letter until second class year. Known for his love of good times and an overpowering fear of cold weather, Glenn preferred Coronado beaches to the rickety walks of Annapolis. He is still single, but wants to settle down someday on the eight acre Crawlord Ranch. His choice of duty . . . none other than Navy line.


Glenn was lost when his F9F Cougar jet fighter had a mid-air collision with another near Tracey, California. The other pilot survived. Glenn was survived by his parents, RADM Davis Crawford, USN (Ret.) and his mother; he is buried in California. The crash occurred on November 10, 1955.
