Grand Junction Parks and Recreation Department lifeguards and family members of Billy Crawford, dedicated a plaque and tree on May 25 to honor Billy’s three years as a lifeguard. Billy died Aug. 12. “Stories were shared about his lifesaving and first responder skills, as well as his exuberance and humor,” wrote Charlyn Crawford, who submitted this photo. Lifeguards and their families and parks department staff donated money for the plaque and a memorial scholarship fund. Donations can still be made through the parks department toward the scholarship fund, which will be used to help cover recertification costs for lifeguards.
