He was born Sept. 20, 1949 in Sweet Home to John F. and Myrtle (Davis) Crocker.

Mr. Crocker loved fishing and hunting and was extremely good at both. He loved going on long rides with his brothers and his best friend, Larry Zook. He was a very good baker. He baked cookies, bread and pies for every occasion and made candy with his sister LaVelle for Christmas.
Mr. Crocker is survived by a daughter, Heather Crocker; sister LaVelle Updegrave; brothers Dale and sister-in-law Shirley Crocker, Joe and sister-in-law Bev Crocker, and Perry and sister-in-law Kay Crocker; many nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and nephews who were very special to him; and lifelong friend Larry Zook.
He was preceded in death by his parents; sisters Velma Zook and Viola Ferebee; and brothers Alvin and Ray Crocker.
