Later that year, Crane married his Hogan's Heroes co-star Sigrid Valdis on the set of the series. They had a son, Robert Scott 'Scotty' (June 4, 1971). Valdis and Crane separated in 1977, but reportedly reconciled shortly before his death.
More than 20 years after his death, Crane's widow, Sigrid Valdis, had his remains exhumed and transported approximately 25 miles southeast to Westwood Village Memorial Park in Westwood. After her death from lung cancer in 2007, Valdis was buried next to him.
