Steven D. Crawford

Steven D. Crawford, 60, of Union Deposit, Harrisburg, transitioned into eternal life on Sunday, October 2, 2016 at his mother’s home.
He was born in Harrisburg, PA., son of Mary Thompson-Crawford and the late Sam Banks.  Wrongly convicted of murder at the age of 14 and sentenced to life in prison. Steve and his family fought a relentless battle with the criminal justice system for his freedom.  In June of 2002 he was set free and exonerated after spending 28 years.  He never took the plea, that’s innocence.   Steve received his GED and traded it in to receive his High School Diploma and walked across the stage with Harrisburg High Class of 2004.  He briefly worked for LOVESHIP, Inc. alongside of his sister Linda, providing job training and mentorship services to city youth.He voluntarily spent his time as a social justice and civil rights advocate for individuals locally and abroad up until his expiration, privately and publicly assisting individuals with their legal matters. He provided his personal resources to assist those who were struggling financially.  He loved his family and was generous with his resources.  Of importance, he believed in God and accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior; leaving us all a blueprint on how to endure life’s trials and tribulations without bitterness.  His huge, bright, smile, and kindness will be remembered.
