Tribute

Dwight Allan Crocker, "Big D," beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend, 49, of Fredonia PA, passed away December 1st, 2022 after a lengthy hospital stay with many complications. Dwight was a 1991 graduate from Lakeview and a 1995 graduate from Edinboro University with a BS in Art Education, a minor in Psychology. He was working on his Masters in counseling when he went home to Heaven. Dwight served in the church many ways over the years including as youth leader, Sunday School teacher and Superintendent, worship team, and most recently welcoming committee. Dwight most recently attended Bethel Life Worship Center in Greenville. He loved the Lord. That was evident in the way he loved people, & he was loved by people everywhere he went. Dwight was born March 6, 1973 in Sarasota Florida to Keith Leroy, Diana Lynn (Hallett), and big brother Dana Crocker. He played baseball, wrestled, was a member of the track team, and managed the football team at Lakeview. September 26, 1998, Dwight married childhood friend Christina McDonnell and was called away from the reception for a kidney transplant. For just shy of 24 years, Dwight served as a role model at George Junior Republic, the majority of those years with his wife Christy, as Counselor-Parents. He had a unique way of connecting with the young men there and enjoyed being a father figure to them. Dwight also enjoyed cooking, fishing, hunting, drawing/painting, scaring people, & making people laugh! He was a serious fantasy football player and a lifelong Steelers fan. He loved spending time with his family and friends. Dwight was preceded in death by his father Keith Crocker, cousins Michael and Michelle Hallett, 1/2 brothers Jim & Terry Crocker, 1/2 sister Patsy (Crocker) Neville, and brother-in-law John "Jack" Wells. Left behind to honor his memory are wife Christy, daughter Rylee, goddaughter Megan Armstrong (Nick), mother & stepfather Diana & Myron Tipton, brother Dana (Mandy), 1/2 siblings Carol (Crocker) Wells, Patty Messina, Myron Tipton (Shelley), Brenda Tietz (Rob), and many nieces and nephews. Dwight gave specific instructions that with all the medical help he was given in life for all of the health issues he faced, he wanted to donate his body for scientific research when he no longer needed it. And we, his family, were so grateful Science Care was there to take care of everything.
