If you haven’t been on Facebook in a while, then you probably don’t know that your buddy, the legendary, Larry Wayne Crocker, of Lumberton, TX, has passed. Born in Beaumont, TX on October 19th, 1948, Larry went out as fast as his Corvettes, on Friday the 13th of May, 2022. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather/Poppy, uncle, brother, son, and human person. Larry was a graduate of Forest Park High School class of ’67, and Lamar University class of ’72. He retired from his role as President of Jefferson County Title in 2015. He spent his final years traveling the country on his Harley Davidsons and Corvettes, or any other fast vehicle he could get his hands on. He went peacefully, holding his wife’s hand, and his final days were filled with love, laughter, and memories with dear friends, and his daughter’s wedding where he gleefully gave her away. Larry is proceeded in death by his father, Johnie Crocker, Jr., his mother, Kathryn Jane Cherry Crocker, his brother, James Andrew Crocker, and various aunts, uncles, and cousins. Speaking of fast, Larry is survived by his beautiful, loving, caring, devoted wife of 46 years who he knew for about a week before he decided she was his girl; Dorothy Therese Jorden Crocker, of Lumberton, TX, his daughters, Jamie Lynn Crocker, of Lumberton, TX, Jennifer LeAnn Crocker, and her husband James Charles King, of Brooklyn, NY, and Channa Nicole Woodall and her husband William Christopher Woodall, of Murray, KY, his grandchildren, Caitlin Aurora Crocker Lockhart, Camden Wayne Chizer, Brady Christopher Woodall, Sophie Bird King, Indigo Jean King. Larry is also survived by his baby brother, Johnie Dale Crocker, and his sister-in-love, Judy Diane Nusom, and all his nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews which he loved as if they were his own children. In addition, Larry is survived by all his dear friends and family at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY, all his Harley riding buddies, and various members of a local Corvette club, who he got into too much trouble with on caravans and cruises! You know who you are. If you’ve made it this far, you probably aren’t surprised to learn that a typical funeral was not Larry’s idea of a good time so a private graveside service will be held instead. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations may be made to the National Corvette Museum, 350 Corvette Drive, Bowling Green, KY, 42101 or Julie Rogers Gift of Life Program, 2390 Dowlen Rd., Beaumont, TX, 77706. As Larry would say, ‘It is what it is’
