James D. Crum, 87, died on May 5 in Sublimity, Ore.
“My father devoted his life to teaching, his greatest gift. He lived a very full life backpacking, climbing very tall mountains, and traveling the world teaching chemistry and wine appreciation. He wrote books, published many papers, and never learned how to give a short answer to anyone’s question about anything! He was a professor until the end.”—Leslie Crum, daughter
