Thomas Crockett Obituary

Thomas L. Crockett, age 81 of Clyde, passed away Wednesday, February 7, 2024, at his home surrounded by family. Tom was born June 26, 1942, in Fremont, the son of the late Robert S. and Marie (Homegardner) Crockett.

At just 13 years of age, Tom helped work on turning the farm into a golf course. Then came the dream of fine dining in Clyde as Green Hills Restaurant opened in 1967, working as director of golf by day and host by night. In 1961 Tom got his PGA certification and got the joy of teaching golf. He truly appreciated the customers and had immense pride in watching the family business grow. Then 1984 brought the opening of Woussickett. Along with many hours spent at the family business, Tom also enjoyed hunting and traveling.

In 1994 Tom and Jo discovered a new home in Key West, FL, where Crockey was born. There he learned to dive for lobster, trap for stone crab, and enjoy his pontoon boat. He was President of the Seaside Pelican Social Club for 10 years. After retirement in 2010, his beautification of the golf course was his new mission. He enjoyed planting flowers, trimming trees, and tending to details on the course. Tom enjoyed his pool, yard, early morning walks, and making Joanne, his wife of 60 years, breakfast every day.

Tom loved his golfing customers, his Seaside family, and entertaining people, family, friends, guests, and strangers alike.

Tom will be dearly missed!
