September 9, 1977 ~ May 13, 2020

Born in: Tarrytown, NY
Resided in: Lilburn, GA

Kevin Michael Croke, born September 9, 1977, died on May 13, 2020. He is survived by the love of his life, his wife and best friend, Rebecca Sanders Croke, his daughter Alice Kingsley Croke, his son Andrew Harrison Croke; his sister Jennifer Wells (Jess); and his brother Timothy Croke (Erin). He was preceded in death by his mother Virginia Moran Croke, his brother Andrew Thomas Croke, and his father Thomas Michael Croke.
Kevin was an extremely loving and devoted husband to his wife, a doting and caring father to his two children, a fun and passionate role model to his three nieces (Sophia and Madeline Wells; Tatum Fleming), three nephews (Thomas and Daniel Croke; William Fleming), and several cousins (Tony, Mary and Alanna Hickey-Moran; Karl Jones), a caring son-in-law to Mike and Becky Sanders, and a fiercely loyal brother and friend. Love for and loss of our Kevin will be felt by family members and friends extending from California to New York and as far away as Japan.
At a young age, Kevin promised his mom that he would be successful. He kept this promise by graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Georgia State and went on to earn his MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management of Devry University. Overcoming much personal and professional adversity, he achieved his dream job as a Senior Business Systems Analyst, supporting various high-profile clients in locales such as New York, NY (right next to Radio City Music Hall). His business travel also facilitated the most amazing family vacations, providing a multitude of priceless memories for his wife and children. Kevin recently purchased his family’s dream home in Lilburn, Georgia and was very proud of his work as President of the ROSRC board.
We are utterly heartbroken to lose Kevin, who was so full of life and so charismatic. We will miss his warmth, laughter, huge smile, sarcastic sense of humor, and the joy he brought to us all.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the family will have a Celebration of Life for all who loved and cared about him at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Kevin’s family at

So Long to The Captain, we will miss and love you forever.

  1. Beautifully written…I can’t believe that Kevin is gone…sadly, the more loving and generous and kind we are, the more pain those who were close to us feel when we die, and so the loss of Kevin is being felt by so many people…my heart aches especially for Dee and Alice and Andrew, but I am comforted by the fact that Kevin achieved so much in his short life – a happy marriage, a beautiful family, a successful career, a dream house, the love and respect of so many family members, friends, and colleagues – surely a life to be proud of…I am certain that Kevin will never be forgotten by those whose lives he touched…goodbye GS ❤️ !!! GF

  2. CandleImageI feel so lucky that through Greg I met Dee and Kevin. We never made it out as much as we should have to let them know what a special place they held in our hearts and that will remain the biggest regret. I’ll always remember Kevin for his smile and for his witty humor. I’ll remember how he was one of the few people I’ve ever met that said what he meant without holding back. I was in awe of how he glowed when he talked about Dee, their children and his family. The love he had for the people he cared about radiated out of him and I could tell the first time I met him that he’d give the shirt off his back for them. His family, his friends, the world lost a very bright light but I know he’ll continue to shine in all the beautiful memories of the people who were blessed to know him.

  3. CandleImageKevin was such an AWESOME HUMAN!! Can’t believe he’s been taking from this world. Prayers and blessings to Dee and the Kids!!

  4. Sending you more love and prayers. Reading this just breaks my heart for you, Dee, and the kids. Love you and know we are here if you need us. Kevin, you brought a lot of Sunshine to your family and friends. You were taken too soon.
