Gregory “Greg” Crane


It is with profound sadness that the family of Greg Crane announce his passing on December 09, 2021, at the age of 53 He was born 06/26/1968 in Columbia, Missouri. Greg grew up in Missouri and moved to MN after his High School graduation.

While we were not at Mayo long, the caring and compassionate staff at Methodist Hospital-Mayo was kind, helping us though a shocking and confusing time.

Greg lived in North Minneapolis for the past 15 years, with his best friend Cindy Anderson, there they shared a house, four dogs and a victory garden. If you knew Greg, he would always tell stories about the dogs, the cute things, and not so cute things they did. They were spoiled, guess why that was? (Not naming names) but he would never admit to it. They brought him so much joy. He loved to garden, barbeque, and read under the gazebo with Dogs. He had a love of music, theater, camping and would have traveled more if he could have.

Greg did not have any grandchildren, but he cherished special moments with Cindy’s Two Grandchildren, Johnnie, and Ellie, who affectionately called him Grandpa.

Greg is survived by: Luther Crane (Father), Cindy Anderson (friend) Susan Robinson (Tim), sister Shaw (Kelly) Crane, brother), Georgia Robinson, Alex Penrose (nieces), Axel Crane (nephew) and many cousins and friends.

Preceded in death by: Ruth (Parish) Crane, mother and Sierra Ridgeway Crane, niece.
