BLACK CAMEL - MICHAEL CROCKER DH1965

Apologies to those of you who are already aware of this, but we wanted to make sure that we use all forms of Brat communication to get the word out.

It is with great sadness that we report to you of the passing of one of our own. The Black Camel came and carried our Brat brother Michael Crocker DH 1965 into the night to join all of the others of the Brat family that have gone before him.

Above all else Michael was a Brat and dedicated at least the last 20 years of his life to fostering and promoting the Brat spirit that ties us all together. When Bratdom was in chaos and the tradition of reunions had a very uncertain future, Michael stood up and did something about it. Gathering a group of like-minded Brats around him, he formed the ABI, rebuilt the contact database, wrote a stringent set of bylaws that dedicated the new organization to the protection of Brat ideals and charged the board of directors with fiduciary responsibility to make sure that Brat funds are protected. The ABI is Michael’s legacy to us all. His dedication to connecting ALL Brats together is the example he leaves for us.

He will be sorely missed.

    I am so sorry to hear of Michael's passing. He is the reason that I found the Brats at all, and was so happy to be on the mailing list and see the website. That was pre-FB. He was on the same skydive chat page and saw the post, "Are their any AramcoBrats who skydive?". I wrote him and we had some great chats as I learned about everyone being connected. Thanks, Michael. You will always be remembered fondly by me.
