C is for Crumpler, Denver

17 August 1912 - 21 March 1957

Denver Crumpler is the finest tenor that I've ever heard. His love for Heavenly Father is apparent in everything that he sings. He is the Statesmen that I most relate to. He was a diabetic as my husband David is. He died an untimely death at the age of 44 due to diabetic complications which were originally misdiagnosed as a heart attack. He left behind a wife and children who still needed him very much.

While I never had the opportunity to meet Mr. Crumpler in person, he died a little more than eight years before I was born, I grieve such a tragic loss. He was the epitome of Southern gospel music.

This video spotlights the wonderful tenor voice of Denver. It is on the YouTube Channel belonging to his son Bobby Crumpler.

I'll Tell It


And this one, Heavenly Love, this one has to be my most favorite song to watch Denver sing. As he raises his voice, his face seems all aglow with love for our Heavenly Father. I can see how much he feels what he is singing. His heart is in this. It isn't just a job to him. It gives me chills. It is just beautiful!

Heavenly Love

Please be sure to visit his son Bobby's YouTube channel  as well as the website that he has set up in honor and memory of his father: Gospel Hall of Fame Tenor Denver Crumpler

    1. Thank you, Alex. Premi-yum caught my attention, too. :)

      On a side note, a funny thing is that my kids don't like the premium saltine crackers. They prefer the store brand. We thought we were doing a good thing buying name-brand saltines once and they were not happy one little bit. They wanted the no-name ones. Oh well. :)

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great night!
