THOMAS R. CROWLEY, age 90, of Rehoboth Beach, DE passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Monday, October 18, 2021 at Beebe Hospital in Lewes, Delaware. Tom was born and raised in the Washington, DC area to the late Thomas R Crowley and Frances (Sullivan) Crowley and was the oldest of five children. He graduated from Georgetown Preparatory School in 1949 and later graduated from Georgetown University.

He moved to the Rehoboth Beach area in the late 1960s and worked at Angola by the Bay and later helped start Bethany West before starting his own business, Crowley Associates, in 1972. 1972 was a turning point for Tom as he started a business, got Sober and married his loving wife of 49 years, Wanda. He was an active member of Alcoholics Anonymous and went to any lengths to keep his sobriety and pass it on to others. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed the relationships cultivated through AA and the links. He loved his Irish heritage and was a devout Catholic. He mostly enjoyed spending time with his wife Wanda and all their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He is a great example of a life well lived and will be missed by many. The family would like to thank Dr. Srihari Peri, a dear family friend, who helped Tom extend his golf career as well as quality of life. A true and loved friend. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Wanda M. Crowley; his children, Michael Crowley; Thomas and Gerda Crowley; David and Tracy Crowley; Brian and Carol-Lynne Crowley; Cathleen Crowley and Deborah Steinbach; his stepchildren, Sherry Ternahan; Robert and Diane Ternahan; his 19 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.
