    My condolences to the entire Crews family..
    Captain “Buddy” Crews was company commander of Headquarters and Headquarters Company A, 730th Maintenance Battalion in Butner when I joined the Army National Guard in 1972. He was a good man and a great leader. Buddy and Barbara;’s son “Neil” was also a member of the Guard and natural born leader. I never had the privilege of knowing Barbara but I’m sure she was the heart and soul behind both Buddy and Neil and now they are reunited in GODs arms.
    May GOD be with the Crews Family you during your time of great loss.

    Command Sergeant Major (Retired)

    I am saddened to learn of Barbara’s passing. I have known her for many years when she was employed at Murdoch. She always had a smile on her face and was so nice. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
