William "Bill" Crocker

Crocker, William "Bill" TEMECULA -- Bill Crocker, 80, went to be with the Lord on March 28, 2013, while on hospice at Murrieta Gardens. He and Carole, married on June 21, 1980, created a blended family with his three children, Carol, Sue, and Jeff, and Carole's two children, Christine and Anthony. Bill was a child model and actor, "Sunny Crocker" and was chosen by Walt Disney to play all seven dwarfs in the creation of the animated movie "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." After serving in the US Air Force during the Korean War, he launched his career in education. He was a teacher, creator of media centers, writer of 300+ educational films, and an administrator for almost four decades. After retiring from public education, he and Carole had fun traveling throughout US, Canada, and Italy with their business. He returned to teaching (his love) at Cornerstone Christian School. "Mr. Science" was a beloved teacher there for many years, retiring in 2011. After moving to Temecula in 1998, Bill and Carole became active at Cornerstone Community Church (CCC) in Wildomar, where he led the greeters' ministry perfect for his personality. Services will be on Sunday, April 14, 2013, at 2 pm at CCC. We would like to thank everyone for their love, prayers, and support during these past months and thank and praise the Lord for giving us Bill, who touched so many lives.
