CROCKER, Paul Lemuel
- 50. It is with broken hearts that Paul's family announce his passing on December 11, 2006, in Saint John Regional Hospital, succumbing to injuries received earlier in the day in an industrial accident. He was born in Corner Brook, N.L., where his loving parents, Jim and Ruby Crocker, still reside. He is survived by his only love and wife of 27 years, Heather; his beloved children, Alex and Alana, all of Dartmouth. He also leaves to mourn sister, Denise (Kaj) Hedin and their children Caroline and James of Calgary; brother, Brian (May) Crocker and their son Shawn of Ghana; and sister, Vicki of Corner Brook, as well as Heather's family, Calvin and Ruby Chaffey and Barbara and Mark Jackson of Edmonton.

Paul was a highly skilled diesel mechanic, leaving Newfoundland in 1977 to work in Edmonton. He and Heather returned east in 1981 where by 1985 he became a co-owner of the former Provincial Diesel Repair in Burnside. He worked long and hard to build the successful business which was sold in 1997. His reputation as a mechanic and mentor was widely known. Never one to sit idle, he became self-employed and worked mainly for Waterworks Construction, recently accepting the new challenge of becoming a licensed crane operator.

Besides being a devoted family man, Paul's other main passion in life was scuba diving. He spent many happy hours in the water with his diving buddies, preferring the high tech world of wreck diving off our coast. He was a wonderful son, brother, husband, and father and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Capable, dependable, a rock to lean on and to learn from, that was our Paul.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Atlantic Funeral Home, 771 Main St., Dartmouth. There will be no visitation by family request. Funeral service will be held 2 p.m. Friday, December 15, in Atlantic Funeral Home Chapel with a reception to follow. Private family interment will take place at a later date. Family flowers only.
