Bryan Crow, chaplain for many county sports groups, dies

Bryan Crow, chaplain for several Orange County sports groups for many years, died Sunday. He was 88.

A cause of death has not been announced.

Crow delivered the invocation and benediction at many high school events, including Orange County Athletic Directors Association awards dinners and National Football Foundation-Orange County Chapter Scholar-Athlete dinners.

A native of Texas, Crow was a pastor for 49 years including at two churches in Texas and at Garden Church of Anaheim.

Aside from his work with Orange County high school sports groups, among the many boards on which he served was the Anaheim police chief advisory board. He often wore to meetings a jacket of a county police or fire department because he had just left a police or fire department meeting before getting to the next one.

Steve Danley, longtime Orange County basketball official and son of former Katella basketball coach Tom Danley, said Crow was his pastor for many years.

“He was a practical and great minister,” Steve Danley said. “He could preach like nobody’s business.”

Crow is survived by his wife Wanda, two daughters and several grandchildren.

Services are Saturday, Aug. 6 at 10 a.m. at Kindred Community Church, 8712 E. Santa Ana Canyon Road in Anaheim.
