Obituary for John D. Crissman
John D. Crissman, 70, of Clearfield, passed away Monday September 30, 2019 at Mt. Laurel Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in Clearfield.

Born September 30, 1949 in Clearfield, he was the son of James T and Dorothy P. (Owens) Crissman. Mr. Crissman was the retired owner of River Road Contracting and Supply Co. in Clearfield. He was a U S Naval Veteran of the Vietnam War, was a member of Clearfield Lodge F. & A. M., was affiliated with the West Side United Methodist Church in Clearfield, and was the caretaker of Elliott’s Park

The accomplishment John was most proud of was the creation of Elliott’s Park along River Road in Clearfield. He loved decorating the Park for Holidays, especially for Halloween. He was a quiet humble man and took great satisfaction in knowing that he had provided a place where people could come and fish, picnic, take photos, or just sit on one of the park benches and watch the river flow.

John is now with his beloved Elliott and one can only imagine what that reunion must have been like.

Surviving is his fiancée Carol A. Turner of Clearfield; 2 sisters: Dorothy “Dottie” Crissman of Clearfield and Linda Winslow and husband Robert of Rockton; a half brother James “Jimmy” Crissman of Hatfield; 2 nieces: Robin Winslow and companion Brady Crain and Jennifer Evans; a nephew Christopher Evans and wife Elizabeth; and 2 great nieces and a great nephew.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
