John "Crash" Henry Cradduck

October 30, 1955 — June 21, 2023

John H. "Crash" Cradduck, Sr., 67, of Greenville, Ohio, passed away on Wednesday, June 21, 2023, at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio.

He was born on October 30, 1955, in Oregon, to the late Rosemary Wetzel.

Crash is survived by his son, John (Marivel Johnston) Cradduck of Vandalia, Ohio; his grandchildren, Celinda, and Jovanni Cradduck; his fiancé, Dannetta Strobel of Greenville; and his sister, Kathy Carson.

Crash volunteered and joined the United States Army when he was 17, during the Vietnam War. After serving, he returned home and began his life-long career of being a jack-of-all-trades and a master of most. There were very few things Crash couldn't do. He was an artist, painter, and enjoyed constructing dioramas. He loved playing video games, watching movies and was a die-hard Star Wars fan.

A military honors service will be held at 1:00 PM on Friday, August 25, 2023 at the Riverside Cemetery's veteran memorial located at 101 Riverside Drive in Troy, Ohio, located across the street from the Troy City Park. Following the military service, a celebration of Crash's life will be held at the brick shelter in the Troy City Park.
