Mike and Mimi,I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. Mr. C.R. was an awesome guy! He was quick witted and always had something funny to say when I talked to him at the credit union. I retired 3 years ago but remember him as one of my favorites! He's home now with Mrs. Sawrie....I know he's complete now.Elaine Hunthrop
You will truly be missed Mr. CR!
C.R. will certainly be missed. I appreciate him a lot.
CR was special. He watched to see what he could do for others. Always willing to give a helping hand. He was a wonderfiul man and friend. Am thankful for the influence he had on my life. He sure was commited to Little Rock First Church of the Nazarene and the Sourth Arkansas District by sevicing on many boards and volunteering his energy for many years. He will be missed by me and many others. I am sure there was a lot of rejoicing as he entered into Jesus presence.
Mike, Mimi, and Travis, My sincerest condolences on the death of CR. What a fantastic person and what a remarkable life he lived. CR's service to God, Family, and Community was unparalleled in my opinion. I was truly humbled to be his nephew. I will always remember our family visits when I was a young man and the good times, we all had. CR will be missed but never forgotten.
I worked with C.R. on occasion over a few years; and always noticed two things. First, he was friendly. Second, he was helpful. I could tell that he was genuinely willing to help me with my problems or questions, which made him a natural mentor. Those qualities made him a man that people remembered and appreciated.
I was a secretary to Mr. Sawrie and others in the AP&L Marketing Department in the late 60's and early 70's. Then I quit to go to college full time. After two semesters, Mr. Sawrie called and asked if I was ready to go back to work. I said, "You don't know how ready." It was the best job I ever had. I loved working for him, and have such great memories of Farm Equipment Shows and Farm Family of the Year events. I spoke with him after seeing him on tv after he made an Honor Flight to Washington with other World War II veterans. It was a really nice visit after such a long time. He was such a good man.
To to the family's of C. R. Sawier, I truly have enjoyed been Mr. Sawier, housekeeper at parkway Village. He wasn't only my resident but a friend in Jesus Christ. He will truly be missed at Parkway Village.One thing I know sure for he is in heavenly with his beautiful wife .
To the family of CR, Our deepest condolences…CR was a true gentleman, and one of God’s best here on earth. We met CR while my mother, Anna Marie Trueman, lived at Parkway Village. We hosted a 100th birthday party at our home last year, which was one of his many celebrations of reaching this amazing milestone. Mom and I went to see him a few weeks ago and he was so upbeat and dear. He expressed his love for us before we departed…our hearts are saddened, but it comforts us to know CR just achieved his divine promotion. Lovingly, Ed and Sue Owens, Anna Marie Trueman
CR Sawrie was a patient of mine for many years. He was more than that, he was a special friend. I still have some of the beautiful unique wood creations he so lovingly made for me and so many others. He was a very bright man who cared for his family deeply. He was organized and always trying to “hope for the best, but prepare for the worst“ (I still have a copy of the Living Will that he gave me to be sure that his end of life wishes were carried out properly). he was one of those patients who tried to do everything that I suggested to improve his health. I am sure that that contributed to his longevity. He was so committed with his walk for Jesus, and he was a man who excelled in so many ways, but most of all, and the character and the example that he gave to so many others. It is sad that when you get to be 100 years old, you may be forgotten. Still, of all the thousands of patients that I saw in my practice, he will always stand out. May his tribe increase.
Our loss was Heavens gain of a most wonderful gentleman and friend. I met CR delivering his mail. You were a Blessing to me.
Mike, I’m so sorry for your loss. Even though we have had no contact for many years and even longer since I had seen your Dad he was always a special person in my life when I was young. I had great respect for him and your mom.
I knew CR from Parkway Village. We enjoyed Monday night dominoes and dinner in the dining room. We will miss you but will see you one day.Sincerely,Claudine Waters
C.R. we are all so blessed to have known you. You were such a Godly man and touched so many lives.
Mimi,Mike,and Travis,It is with deepest sadness that we write this.C.R. was a mentor, neighbor,co-worker,advisor,gardner,best-man and most of all a true gentleman and very ,very dear close friend.He will be missed more than words can say but will be remembered constantly by our whole family for all his kind and gentle ways.May he rest in peace and may the angels escort him to the gates where he will once again be joined by family. We will miss you dear friend.
I will sorely miss our wonderful times together, from playing Dominoes, watching TV, eating out, or our long “philosophical” talks 😊! CR was an amazing woodworking “craftsman” and I was lucky enough to be gifted with many but my special gift was a beautiful Angel that I will forever cherish! I know CR is happy and at peace now…..farewell my friend ❤️
C R was one of our “old AP&L group”. He was always so kind, and someone who always remembered my name. I never worked for C R, but I did work with him on some of his agri projects.
C.R. was a Christian gentleman of the first order. I'm proud to have had the opportunity to have known him and worked with him. My condolences to the family in their loss."The souls of the just are in the hand of God...He found them worthy of Himself." Wisdom, Chapter 3
C.R. was my favorite uncle. He always made me laugh as a child and I will most miss hearing his voice, it brought back so many happy memories. He was a truly special person.
Although I didn't work directly with CR I considered him a good friend and enjoyed seeing his big smile.
