Carwyn Lane Abraham

Carwyn Lane Abraham, of League City, Texas passed away on Saturday, March 25, 2023, at the age of 71. He was born on February 16, 1952 in Texas City, Texas to Warren and Ava (Otts) Abraham.

He was a 1970 graduate of Dickinson High School where he excelled in football and track. When he was 16, he was in a diving accident that injured his spinal cord. Being a quadriplegic did not prevent him from a tandem sky dive parachute jump in San Marcos, Texas or completing a certification in scuba diving despite his aversion to water. He was relentless in his endeavors, had a huge heart, a big smile, and was an inspiration to all. He embraced life, always facing each challenge with courage and dignity.

While he received an Associate Arts degree in Journalism from College of the Mainland, his greatest accomplishment was obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Theology from Texas Bible College. He was a member of Greater Life Church in Webster, Texas. He loved the Lord, studied the Bible, and served the Lord by searching for ways to help those in need.

He spent most of his work career in laboratory construction and laboratory equipment sales and design with extensive experience in laboratory, pharmacy, and cleanroom designs. He also worked as a Senior Technical Writer with Halliburton and as a Marketing Director for Johnson Space Center Federal Credit Union.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Warren Abraham and Ava Price.

Carwyn is survived by his brother, Stanley Abraham and wife, Joyce; nephew Bryan Abraham; step-mother Marlene Abraham; step-sister Vicki Taylor; numerous cousins; and many caring friends.

The family will receive friends on Thursday, April 6, 2023, from 10 a.m. with a Memorial Service at 11 a.m. at Crowder Funeral Home, 1645 East Main, League City, Texas 77573.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Greater Life Church, P.O. Box 58763, Webster, Texas 77598. Carwyn will be greatly missed by his family and will continue to be deeply loved and forever kept in their memories.


  1. Carwyn will be dearly missed by so many people. He’s always been such a great friend to me and my family. He did love the Lord and loved to talk about him and anything bible related always. We had many many talks. I will truly miss those. Still just can’t believe he’s gone! Prayers and Love to the family.

  2. When Carwyn came to Dickinson High School, he turned many heads and quite a few hearts. He was like a fresh breeze off the gulf coast, brightening up our muggy bayou town. We cheered him on the gridiron. We cheered him on the track. And we admired his quiet resolve as we watched him stride through our halls and lives. And then there was his accident that shook us all to the core. Things like that aren’t supposed to happen to the beautiful, young and strong. But it did. Suddenly, we all had to grow up. A lot. As we stood by helplessly watching him struggle, we saw him draw on a strength the rest of us could barely imagine. He faced his new reality with a spiritual love that he found in his heart and his soul. Unabashed, he turned to our Lord and often spoke of his dedication and beliefs. There were so many quiet conversations where he reaffirmed his faith and clarified my doubts. He and I also spoke of politics. And economics. And ” cabbages and kings”. His sharp mind was always ready to drive his points home in his gentle giant manner. I shall miss those most. His life changed those who knew him in ways he may have never realized. It made us grow up quickly, think critically, question fairly and love honestly. He will always be a part of the fabric in all of our lives. Deepest condolences to the many who will miss him, always.

  3. While many of our classmates were not able to attend Carwyn’s service, we all mourn the loss of Carwyn. We marveled at his strength to persevere through the many years of adversity as he struggled through all the trials of his life. He didn’t complain, he sought solutions to carry onward. I for one, admired his courage and faith that carried him forward. Linell Pauls Mcgallian.
