George Crowe

George Crowe, circa 1948.

Wishing a posthumous Happy Birthday to George Crowe, the last surviving member of the New York Rens all-black professional basketball team.

Crowe, who was born in 1921, died earlier this year. He would have been 90 years old today.

No word yet on the funeral arrangements for Crowe, though his family has indicated that they may scatter his ashes in a ceremony near his beloved long time home in upstate New York at some future date.

We also send our best wishes, peace, and many blessings to the extended Crowe family.
