ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. — David Crenshaw, who spent five decades as a Pendleton firefighter and four years as Anderson County's sheriff, was remembered by friends Monday as "a gentle giant" who gave his life to public service.

Crenshaw was responding to a car crash on behalf of the Pendleton Fire Department when he collapsed on a pump panel Monday morning. Workers at the scene immediately started trying to revive Crenshaw, but he was unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at AnMed Health Medical Center in Anderson shortly before 8 a.m. He was 63.
