Mark Crockett passed away on Thursday morning, May 19, at Hospice of Dayton.

Mark was a dedicated 20-year Miami Township Trustee, a well-known blues musician, artist and co-owner of Rita Caz Jewelry with his wife, Gail Zimmerman, for 32 years. He was a lifelong villager who made a big difference in the discourse here, adding humor, music and wisdom.

Mark had a philosophy: “Do no harm.” He lived that life.

He is survived by his wife, two children, six grandchildren, one sister, three brothers, nephews, nieces, cousins and sisters- and brothers-in-law.

A celebration of life will be held Sunday, June 19, 2 p.m., at John Bryan Day Lodge. More details will be announced.

    I knew Mark only casually, having talked many times to him in his store and jammed with him a few times. YS will sorely miss him! My most heartfelt condolences to his family and many friends. May he rest in peace and may his memory be blessing to all.

    I went to WSU with Mark and Gail back in the sixties when they moved out of a house they were renting from Hugh Maurer I moved in. He and Gail always were great to interact with. I am sorry that I lost touch with them after moving away more than forty years ago

    Never heard anyone say anything bad about Mark. I met him a few times through mutual friends and he was always pleasant and seemed to take a genuine interest in what people were trying to communicate to him, or to the world. My partner went to school with Mark and said Mark was a leader, even in high school. Our condolences to the village, friends, and family. Peace.

    Mark set the engagement ring my wife of 32 years still wears to this day in addition to a pre-engagement ruby ring he custom designed for us. It was always a delight interacting with him. Rest in Peace Mark.
