Meek Mill Remembers Tyrone Crawley
The Philly native went to his Instagram page to remember Crawley’s legacy. More than a boxer, Meek acknowledged he saw Tyrone as more of a family member to the masses than a sports star.
“IF YOU GREW UP WITHOUT A FATHER IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD ….HE WAS PROLLY YOUR FATHER! RIP TY “butterfly” CRAWLEY!!! I could write a book on the way you impacted me and my friends lives growing up!!!! A lot more of us would be dead or in jail if it wasn’t for him! MAY GOD REST HIS SOUL AND PRAYERS TO HIS FAMILY! #palcenter 23rd and Berks!!!”
Tyrone Crawley’s Death Announced
Earlier in the week, Crawley’s family announced his unexpected death. His son reflected on how much of a positive contribution Tyrone made to the community.
Crawley was a great guy and impacted many lives in his work both in boxing, law enforcement and efforts with the Philadelphia P.A.L. As his son Tyrone Jr. said in the social media message that announced his father’s death, “It amazes me how many people come up to me on a daily basis and tell me that my Dad was like a father to them (and) how he saved them from jail or (from dying) on the streets.” The Butterfly will be greatly missed by all of us who knew him, but his excellent career and fine example as a man will serve as strong reminders of the friend we all lost. Rest in Peace, Tyrone. (Philly Boxing History)
