On the day of the horror, Dean’s son Mikey had revved the engine of a motorbike he had been working on with his dad.
“Extremely violent” Crosbie complained about the noise – and erupted in a fit of rage, Norwich Crown Court heard.
He attacked “hero” dad-of-three Dean armed with a knife and a saw.
Crosbie was found guilty of murdering father-of-three Dean in Thorpe St Andrew, Norfolk, following a three-week trial, Norfolk Police said.

The force said Crosbie was also found guilty of the wounding with intent of two women – Dean’s partner Louise Newell and friend and neighbour Kerryn Johnson – who had come out to help.
He was cleared of two counts of attempted murder.
Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Phill Gray, from the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, said: “This was a cold-blooded attack by a man intent on causing extreme harm to others.
“Dean suffered 17 stab wounds to his body, some of which were inflicted when he was lying face-down and motionless.

“Crosbie’s savage attack didn’t stop there; he stabbed two people who had come to help Dean, one suffering an arterial bleed to her neck.
“Crosbie is an extremely violent man who has no place in society, and we welcome the jury’s verdict today.”
He said the incident had “striking similarities” to a previous incident in 2018 where Crosbie threatened Mr Allsop with a knife and hammer after Mr Allsop put some rubbish in his wheelie bin.
Cops rushed to the scene shortly before 7.45pm on April 14 last year.
Officers saw Mikey in the middle of the road. He told officers: “I need help. He’s stabbed my dad.”
Dean was pronounced dead at the scene of the attack at 8.18pm.
When officers told Crosbie he was being arrested on suspicion of murder, the killer replied: “That makes me happy, that’s a good thing, that’s the best news I ever heard.”
Body cam footage shows Dean with blood on his head and hands.
In a statement, Mr Allsop’s partner Louise Newell said: “I cannot put into words how this has affected our whole family.
“My children have lost their hero and I have lost my chosen person – the person I chose to spend my life with.
“My best friend, soulmate, my first love.
