Mr. Crabbe was a pure-blood wizard, a Death Eater and the father of Vincent Crabbe. Crabbe fought at the First Wizarding War. He didn't search for Lord Voldemort after his downfall, but this was forgiven in 1995, after Voldemort's return at the Little Hangleton graveyard, in which Crabbe was present. Crabbe fought at several battles of the Second Wizarding War, including the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, after which he was imprisoned in Azkaban. Crabbe possibly escaped in 1997 and fought at the Battle of Hogwarts, during which his son, Vincent, was accidentally killed by his own Fiendfyre. After the battle, Crabbe was presumably killed or imprisoned in Azkaban.
At an unknown time, Crabbe joined the Death Eaters.
First Wizarding War
Crabbe was a Death Eater during the First Wizarding War and was loyal to his master up until his downfall. Around the downfall of Voldemort, Crabbe and his wife had a baby boy, Vincent Crabbe, who would be educated at Hogwarts from 1991 to 1998, and he became friends with Gregory Goyle and Draco Malfoy. Crabbe then declared that he had been under the Imperius Curse to avoid Azkaban after his master's downfall.
Second Wizarding War
Crabbe was one of the few Death Eaters who returned to Lord Voldemort when he rose to power again in 1995. Voldemort was displeased when he learned that Crabbe didn't attempt to find him, but he forgave him.
Battle of the Department of Mysteries
During the Second Wizarding War, Crabbe participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries in 1996, and was paired with Rabastan Lestrange during the pursuit of the six D.A. members. He went with Rabastan to try and capture Harry, Hermione, and Neville, who were hiding in the Time Chamber. His part in trying to find them ended shortly; he was Stunned by Harry, and Crabbe fell and knocked over a grandfather clock. He was likely imprisoned in Azkaban, but re-escaped in 1997.
Battle of Hogwarts
During the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998, Crabbe's son Vincent (who had also become a Dark Wizard) died by the effects of his own Fiendfyre curse. Crabbe's reaction over his son's death is unknown. Crabbe fought at the Battle of Hogwarts too.
Crabbe was presumably imprisoned in Azkaban after Voldemort's final defeat.
