Keion Allen Crumbie

Keion Allen Crumbie, 27, born September 26, 1996, to Rev. Aaron (Tara) Crumbie and Min. Lola (Pastor Marc) Garr, passed away suddenly, yet peacefully at the University of Kentucky Medical Center, Lexington, KY on October 19, 2023.

Keion lived his life effortlessly with no regrets.  He tried very hard to control his illness with diabetes, but God was ready for him, and our hearts were not.  Keion had a very quiet spirit, and an infectious smile.   With his child like demeanor, he could turn a quiet situation into a fun one very fast, making everyone laugh by being their hype man.  He loved his family and friends with his whole heart.  Keion gave his life to the Lord as a teenager, seems that everyone around him was serving in the body of Christ some way or the other, so there was no doubt that he would soon make the decision for himself.

He was preceded in death by his Nannie, Ms. Lena Mae Howard and cherished grandmother, Mrs. Wanda Taylor. 

His memory will continue to live on through his three siblings, Symone Crumbie, Marcius Garr and Kamri Overly; grandparents, Kurt Thomas, Patricia Thomas, Icem (Phylis) Johnson, Pastor William (Deborah) Garr and Pastor Randy Taylor; uncles, Keith Crumbie, Tyrell (Kaitlin) Howard and Lamont (Debbie) Taylor; aunts, Krystal (Derek) Brooks, Whitné (Kyle) Cecil, Madonna Taylor, Kimberly (Lou) Dillard, Quantessa Taylor; host of great aunts and uncles; along with wonderful cousins, friends and co-workers.
