Kade Carson Crocker September 3, 2005 - May 31, 2018

Kade Carson Crocker

LEXINGTON – Kade Carson Crocker, beloved son of Leah Murphree-Crocker and Kirt Crocker joined God on Thursday, May 31, 2018, following a fatal automobile accident.
Born September 3, 2008, Kade will be remembered for his infectious laugh, his ability to make friends with everyone he met, his sense of humor, and the wonderful smile that never left his face. A former student of Mt. Hebron Day School, Kade was a third grader at Rocky Creek Elementary School, where he was adored by many teachers, staff members, classmates and their families. Kade excelled in academics and sports, but his greatest attribute was his determination to make all his peers feel special, and for no one to feel left out.
Kade played soccer for Lexington GPS as a center forward. The only time he appeared unhappy was if he were taken out the game. Kade also played basketball for Lexington Recreation Commission, where he was always the smallest kid on the team, but the one with the biggest heart.
Always outside, Kade loved big trucks, ATVs, BMX bikes, swimming, everything camouflage, and anything with wheels or water. Summer fun was jumping off the back of the boat together, swimming and kayaking at grandma and papa’s; Winter fun included learning to snow ski, ride a dog sled, zooming down a hill on a dish and snowmobiling together; endless tea parties at grandma’s, family gatherings of birthdays, Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving and all things beautiful in between. Indelible memories of giggles, jumping, climbing and always, always Kade helping Ian and Evan climb higher or accomplish any intended goal.
He will be sorely missed by his 2 “Boy’s Best Friends”, Puck and Tracker. His love for animals was surpassed only by his love for people. Kade will be remembered fondly by many as, “my best friend”, and by his family as “Pooter” and “Bubba”.
In lieu of flowers; Kade would have been very grateful for memorial donations, to honor the memory of his grandparents, being made to StandUp2Cancer OR to Rocky Creek Elementary PTA for the Kade Crocker Memorial Fund 430 Calks Ferry Rd.
