Rev. Clarence Crocker Passes Away

We are sorry to report that Rev. Clarence Crocker passed away on Friday, May 29, 2015 after long struggle with cancer.  The death of Rev. Crocker, at age 90, is a big loss to the Glendale community as well as to his family and friends. He loved Glendale and its people. He was an authority on the history of Glendale. He was responsible for preserving much of that  history. He wrote about 250 articles about the place and its people for this website. This is the equivalent of several books. If your family is from Glendale there is a very good chance they will be discussed in one of Clarence’s articles. Clarence had a long and interesting life. You can read more about him and access his articles at
Rev. Clarence Crocker. No one can fill his shoes.
