Lasting Memories

Donald Wilson Crocker
April 29, 1926-March 11, 2024
Pleasanton, California

Don passed away peacefully during his sleep on March 11, 2024 in his Pleasanton home. Just the way he wanted to go!

He was born in Evanston, Illinois. Growing up in Kenilworth and Chicago, he also enjoyed a family summer home in Spread Eagle, Wisconsin. Don enlisted in the Navy in July 1944. During WWII he was stateside as a Flight Line Plane Captain.

In 1948 he married his wife, Jean Page. They raised their two children, Tom and Linda, in the Montclair district of Oakland, CA and later moved to Pleasanton, CA. Don worked in the asphalt industry for over 35 years. He was honored to be a member of the American Legion and he was a Master Mason.

Don loved flying and anything having to do with aviation. He played the organ and piano and liked fishing and animals.

Don is survived by his son, Charles Thomas Crocker, daughter, Linda Crocker Randall, son-in- law, Kelly Gerard Randall, grandson Brendan Patrick Randall, granddaughter Sierra Megan Randall, and great-grandson, Lucas Alexander Randall. The family prefers donations in his memory to American Legion Post 237 Pleasanton or an animal rescue organization.
