Walter's life was wholly enriched by the word of the Lord. After spending ten years in the Navy, he surrendered himself to the ministry, where he preached the word of God for almost 50 years.

Besides his parents, George and Viola Crosson, Walter was preceded in death by his stepfather, George Porter; sister, Thelda Mae Vance; and two brothers, George Crosson and Charles Crosson.

Funeral services, officiated by Walter Lee Crosson, Jr., will be held at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, July 30 at Harmony Baptist Church, Sherwood, Arkansas.
