Justin Crawford, an AFL player, passed away, and Shane Crawford is mourning him.

After Justin Crawford’s passing, the Crawford family is struck by a terrible catastrophe. This one came unexpectedly and at the wrong moment, and as a result, Twitter and other social networking sites have been inundated with condolence messages. As William Adams claims, “Sadly, another young former athlete has passed away at the age of 45. His name is Justin Crawford, and he was a former Hawthorn player.

Shane Crawford, who won the Brownlow Medal, also played for Hawthorn. No reason is given. One must question what the global mortality rates are for these deaths.” Justin, who was two years younger than his brother Shane and played for Finley in the Murray Football League via Tocumwal, was signed by the Swans as a New South Wales zone selection player before the 1994 AFL draft.
