  • We wish to pass on to you our deepest sympathies in losing your Dad and Grandpa. His kind and generous nature will be remembered. We will miss our dear friend. Bill & Pat Rigby - Posted by: Bill & Pat Rigby (Friends) on: Feb 09, 2023

  • My Father loved life more than anyone I've ever known. He was always positive, he loved his his family very much and he was the best Grandfather to my daughter Tatum, they had a bond that could never be broken, she was his Pride and Joy, now her Guardian Angel from Heaven. He also had so many friends, and he touched everybody's soul who knew him. Just to know him, was to love him. As sad as it was to say goodbye to my Dad, someone who loved life so much yet was taken way to soon from this life, I know he is in Heaven reunited with his brother Harold and Grandpa and Grandma Croker. Me and Tatum miss you so much, the hardest thing in the world was saying Goodbye but we will all meet again. Love you Dad Melissa - Posted by: Melissa Croker (Daughter ) on: Feb 06, 2023
