Read about their incredible history and quest to be the best here:
Paul Richard Crocker- 11.10.1945 - 27.11.2014
Paul was a Dad to Tracey and Shaun, a husband to Sue, a Poppy to Korynn, Vanessa, Lleyton and Tiarne.
He was father in law to Murray and Nicole and brother to Geoff and Helen.He passed away in his home with family by his side on Thursday 27th November 2014. His battle with melanoma was drawn out over 7 years. The last two years were dedicated to having the latest treatments in an attempt to control this terrible cancer. He was winning for much of the time however many complications of the treatment held him back. He was mentally strong and knew about everything right up until the end. He was never out of the loop.
It was his wish for Shaun and Tracey and families to continue running the business as we have been for the last few years. He is gone but not forgotten and is truly missed by everyone.
Sue, Tracey and Murray, Shaun and Nicole would like to thank everyone for their ongoing words of support and well wishes throughout the last months and weeks. And to our incredible staff...Words can't describe our gratitude in your efforts to help us running the stores during the last crucial days of Paul's life. He was so proud of everyone. On Wednesday December 3rd 2014, the day of Paul's funeral, we saw hundreds and hundreds of people arrive to pay their respects and to support our families. We were overwhelmed by this and Dad (Paul) would have been honoured. It was the proudest day of our lives to see how much our great mentor, father and leader meant to so many. Thank you.
Paul Crocker: "Well Loved, and Lived Well"
"Our Mentor, Our Inspiration"
