Hunterdon County’s famous “River Hot Dog Man” and tubing business owner Gregory Crance died of COVID-19 complications Monday afternoon. He was 56.
Crance was the owner of Delaware River Tubing in Alexandria Township — a one-of-a-kind business that offers tubing, rafting and boating excursions down the Delaware River with a free BBQ meal served halfway through each trip by Crance himself.
Crance, of Frenchtown, graduated from Central Bucks West High School in Doylestown in 1982 before becoming a Marine and fathering four sons, his personal Facebook page says.
“He gave us everything he had and was always proud of us,” his son, Seth Nicholas, wrote in a public Facebook tribute. “I couldn’t be more proud of him.”
Crance’s funeral will be held 2 p.m. Sunday at the Decker-Givnish Funeral Home in Warminster. It will also be live-streamed on Facebook.
“He will be forever missed, loved, and always in our hearts,” Nicholas writes. “I love you dad. Rest in peace with our beloved dog Peace.”
