SoVaNow.com / May 21, 2013
Willie Lewis Crute was born Jan. 30, 1941. He was the beloved son of Henry Lewis and Pinkie Crute.

After an extended illness, he entered eternal rest on May 15, 2013 while at Halifax Regional Hospital.

Willie was a 1960 graduate of West End High School. He joined New Hope Baptist Church in Boydton, at an early age. In later years, he moved his membership to St. Taylor RZUA Church, also in Boydton. He was a faithful member and servant until his health started to decline. Early in his tenure, he served as superintendent of the Sunday School and treasurer for many years. Throughout his life, Willie had a passion for helping others. He was very active in the PTA when his kids were in school, and he also served as a mentor to groups of young people after his retirement from ABB. Willie was actively involved in his community. You could count on his leadership and support for a number of community initiatives.

Left to cherish his memories are his wife of fifty years, Ester Crute; two sons: Derek Anthoiny Crute and Kevin Xavier (Lisa) Crute, one daughter, Cassandra Crute, a niece who is considered a daughter, Jackie Coleman (Don); seven grandchildren: Sharmar, Shauna, Krystal, Mishtown, Ciara, Kelsey and Anthony; five great grandchildren; his goddaughter, Norma Baskerville; and a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, cousins and friends including two special friends and caretakers, Vernell Ghee and Albert Evans.
