Clay Crosby April 20, 2022 Clay Crosby, 83, passed away on April 20, 2022. Born in Syracuse, New York to F. Baldwin and Virginia Munn Crosby on February 7, 1939, he is survived by his wife of 35 years, Emilie Crosby; their daughter, Nicole Crosby; and his sister, Phyllis White. He attended the NYS College of Forestry, graduated with a Masters, then began working at SUNY ESF from July of 1964 until February of 1999, followed by Clark Reservation for nearly a decade. Throughout this time and beyond, he proudly served as a member of the Jamesville Fire Department. An avid hiker, runner, biker, reader, and music lover, Clay experienced a full life of adventure. His travels took him through England, Wales, Scotland, and Japan, as well as across America. Clay’s love of trains was rivaled only by his love of a good meal. His memorial will be held on Saturday, June 11, from 1-3 pm at the Jamesville Fire Department, with interment to follow for family at Jamesville Walnut Grove Cemetery.
