Forrest Wayne Crocker

Forrest Wayne Crocker entered this world on Oct. 28, 1929 to Iva and Forrest Crocker in Michigan. He left this world on March 16, 2014 in Merced.

He was preceded in death by his parents—and his wife Lila Crocker.

Wayne leaves behind sons David, Gary and Steve (Tammy) Crocker, all of Mariposa. He also leaves behind two grandchildren, Michael and Troy Crocker.

Wayne was loved by all who knew him, and his positive and gentle nature will be remembered.

As a young man, he joined the U.S. Army and served in the Korean War.

With wife Lila and family, Wayne loved to fish.

The peace the family has within it has come from knowing that Wayne is now reunited with his wife Lila at the big fishing hole in the heavens.

He will always be remembered.

Graveside services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 5 at the Mariposa Cemetery.
