Carl Lee Crumrine


Carl Lee Crumrine, 69, of Buckhannon, passed away on Oct. 14, 2019, in Summit County, Utah.

He was born July 10, 1950, a son of the late Etta Merle (Brown) Crumrine and Paul Crumrine Jr.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his first wife, Belinda “D’Anne” Gaston and second wife, Lorraine Crumrine.

He is survived by his children, Paul Crumrine, Bridgette Crumrine and Danielle Burkhammer; 13 grandchildren and one sister, Barb Baxa.

Mr. Crumrine was a graduate of WVWC, and a coal miner for over 40 years. At the age of 69, he was still working as a coal miner, he had not yet retired. In October of 2019, Carl went on a hunting trip in Utah with friends and was last seen alive early on the morning of October 14. Later that evening when he still had not returned to camp he was reported missing. The Summit County Utah Search and Rescue team, other groups, family and friends all searched but the weather limited the search. He was finally found by another hunter on Oct. 5, 2020, about 1 mile from the camp in a densely wooded area with fallen trees. He was hunting in the Lyman Lake Area. He passed away doing what he loved the most, hunting.
