Legendary Timekeeper Graeme “Crock” Crocker passes away
Body: 

Late last Saturday night Williamstown’s legendary Timekeeper and Cricket Scorer Graeme “Crock” Crocker passed away after a short battle with cancer . He was 76.

He was their timekeeper and cricket scorer for over 40 years. 

He was a fixture at all Williamstown games was a mentor to new timekeepers including me and was always willing to help out other clubs when he could.

Last Monday night at VFL Awards he was given life membership but before he passed away Williamstown got him down to DSV Stadium to present him with it and also officially unveil Graeme “Crock” Crocker Timekeeping Box last week.

Certainly thinking of Crock’s family and Williamstown Football Club at this sad time.

Crock’s Funeral s being held at Nelson Bros Williamstown next Wednesday September 27 at 2:30pm. - it will be live streamed.

RIP Crock.

I watched the livestream of the service - was the air horn also blown at the end of the service? It sounded like it
