Steven D. Crocker of Moscow passed away Sunday, January 12, 2010 at Bishop Place in Pullman at the age of 59, surrounded by his family.
Steve was born in Lewiston on April 14, 1960 to parents Dave and Norma (Andrews) Crocker and big sister, Londa. He went to school in Lewiston, graduating from Lewiston High School in 1978. Shortly thereafter he began his trade education as an electrician, attending Walla Walla Community College and Spokane Community College. He was a proud member of the IBEW (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers) Local #73 and worked on many of the most prominent buildings around the Palouse for the past 35 years.
He was handy in down time as well; rebuilding cars, tinkering in his shop, and helping around his family’s homes. He could always be counted on for a perfect job. He will be remembered with grease on his hands and wear on his jeans.
Steve enjoyed classic cars, camping, archery, being a member of the Troy-Deary Archery Club, and hunting. He loved to watch the Mariners, the Seahawks and the Zags, but preferred to watch his kids play whatever sport was in season. His passion and excitement will be missed.
He and Teresa Castleberry were married in Lewiston on February 16, 1980, she survives at their home. Also surviving are his daughter, Jessica (Steve) Holdeman of Meridian, ID and their children, Katelyn, Chase and Alexis and son, Kyle (Katie) Crocker in Salem, OR and their children, Charlie and Frankie.
Steve also leaves his sister, Londa (Larry) West of Palouse and his parents, Dave and Norma Crocker of Lewiston.
The family would like to express their deep appreciation for the staff at Bishop Place and Kindred Hospice for their care. They would also suggests that memorials be sent to the Alzheimer’s Association at ALZ.ORG.
