Robert 'Bob'

Lee Crews

April 28, 1938 - April 22, 2014

Robert "Bob" Lee Crews, 75, entered into rest on April 22, 2014, in Stockton, Calif.

He was born to William and Minnie Crews on April 28, 1938, in Maryland.

He joins his parents in heaven as well as his brothers, Calvin F. Crews and William T. Crews. Bob is survived by his twin brother, John Crews; his three sons, Robert Clark Crews, Richard Brian Crews and Vincent Douglas Crews, as well as his former wife and friend, Carol Brassinga. He was blessed by three grandchildren, Justin, Jennifer and Sarena, as well as four great-grandchildren, Anthony, Jacob, Cayden and Madison.

He was a resident of Copperopolis for the past 20 years and previously of Dublin, Calif. He proudly served his country through the United States National Guard. After the military, Bob and his twin brother, John, owned and operated Twins Auto Repair out of Pleasanton, Calif. After retirement of both brothers in 1993, they both taught automotive repair at Sequoia Institute of Fremont for seven years.

With an automotive career, Bob found a love for restoring classic automobiles. He loved the outdoors especially enjoying hunting, fishing, camping, panning for gold, hiking and raising chickens. He was a history buff and enjoyed an occasional movie.

Bob will be remembered for his respect of a higher power and for his colorful funny sense of humor.
