Dan Crockett, 71, passed away peacefully in his sleep on September 28, 2019.
Dan was born on October 2, 1947 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was a loving husband to Darlene, his wife of 32 years, a loving father to Tommy Crockett and Barbara; Scott Crockett and Candi; Shay Crockett; Maureen Tabaczka and Bob; Kenny Tabaczka and Kerrye; and loving Poppa to Kennedy, Kutter, Kassidy, and Kemper Tabaczka and Robin, Caitlyn and Gail Crockett.
Dan was a Professional Photographer early in his life, and later he was a Sanford Firefighter. He found his true calling when he found A.A., and the great people in the A.A. program who helped him to find sobriety and peace. He decided at that time to become a Licensed Addiction Therapist, earning his Master’s Degree, and dedicated the last 34 years of his life to helping others overcome their addiction battles. He and Darlene founded New Leaf Center outpatient counseling center in 1990, where Dan created a setting to help people heal from the wounds of trauma and addiction.
