Brother Michael Sad to see my oldest brother and friend pass. We had many great discussions about family, New England sports, and life. You were always kind to everyone even when your health challenges were hard to keep your own spirits up. You were a great brother, son, and friend to many. You were an All State football player and a successful collegiate athlete. Writing and reading were your passions Kim, Katelyn, Jase and I will miss you. Love you big brother

My heart is saddened by my friend Michael’s passing. We were co workers and good friends. I will miss the kindness and intelligence that embodied his soul! I Will miss our visits every time I come to Rhode Island. Condolences to Eleanor and family.

Big brother Mike - Funny how old memories come to mind when you lose someone close to you. I remember being on the EPHS JV football team the year you made All State. I was so proud to say you were my brother. The last few years have not been kind to you healthwise, but through it all, you always cared and shared your love for Mom and the rest of the family. Rest in peace and enjoy being with Dad. Love and miss you - Paul

It has been a tough five days since the passing of my big brother, and friend Michael Crowley. One of the most intellectual and kind individuals I will ever know. He was always so proud of his family, always at his happiest when we could all be together as a family. I had endless conversations with him about his beloved Patriots, he loved every second of the TB12 era!! We will all see you again one day, Rest In Peace Michael.....

I am stunned to hear of Mike’s passing. My deepest sympathy to the Crowley family. So many fond memories that Mike was a part of as one of Eddie C’s “boys of summer”. I am thankful to have called Mike my friend.

So saddened to learn of his passing. Michael was a good part of my childhood years. We spent a lot of time together when we were kids. I can even recall the apartment your family lived in, on North Broadway...so long ago. Karen remembers him as a great athlete, and said we all loved going to the E.P. games to watch him play. He was popular with all the kids in the neighborhood and we all looked up to him. As we moved away, we lost touch, never forgetting what a good guy he was. Our Condolences to Eleanor and Family. RIP Michael.
