Not sure what to say?

Dear Crocker Family, It is with great sadness to hear of Tom's struggles and subsequent loss of life here on earth. So many years ago, we had daily interaction at our family business. So many years ago Brian and C.J. were great friends, scouts, and baseball players together .. Sorry, so many years have come and gone since we were together. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers for strength and courage.

Dearest Crocker family,
Our hearts are heavy at the loss of Tom. Thank you all for sharing him in our lives and for all the wonderful, fun memories with him. We will forever cherish them and you all. Sending all our love and prayers.

So sorry to hear of Tom's passing. He fought a long hard battle with strength and a great sense of humor..I will miss seeing him singing. Now he can enjoy all the cheddar popcorn and sugar wafers he wants! Prayers to the family.

I am saddened by the loss of Tom- but am glad that he can be free of the pain he fought so bravely over the last year. I enjoyed many of his performance singing the songs my wife grew up as young teenagers. As newcomers to indy- it was nice to meet such nice people as Tom and Jan. Glad I met you during my limited time at Hoe Depot!

Jan and the Crocker Family,
I very sorry to hear of Tom's passing.
He and I worked at Washtenaw News back in the early to mid 90's. I can remember several times in the wee hours of the morning calling your home begging Tom to please help me with down newspaper routes. Ever the helpful guy, he would always lend me a hand. I can remember being ever so grateful for his assistance.
May God be with you and your family.

My deepest sympathy to the Crocker family. We were neighbors for years growing up in Dexter.

I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Tom Crocker. He was an absolutely wonderful person whom I truly respected and admired. I have very fond memories of him especially from the days of gymnastics and soccer that we shared with our children. My sincerest sympathy to Jan, Kim, Tammy, Todd, and Brian.

Very sorry to hear of your loss. I remember Tom fondly as my Father Oscar Spaly and him were great friends. He was always so positive and uplifting, I am sure he will be missed by many.

Saw Tom last, summer 2017 at the Dexter Bakery, it had been many many years. He was the same friendly guy I knew back in the 60's when he attended some of our band's practice sessions to offer advice and guidance. I have always admired his natural ability to strum that guitar and carry that tune. He was as close to being my musical mentor as I had. Rest In Peace my friend, you certainly will be playing lead guitar in heaven.
