Jonathan was born October 13, 1990, to Johnny Crocker and the late Scarlet Clark Shepperd. He was a member of Flower Ridge United Methodist Church. Jonathan had a deep love for the Bible and his last day on Earth was spent in church where he enjoyed worshiping with his church family, who loved him dearly. Jonathan began working with his Grandaddy, Charles Clark, as a carpenter and builder when he was old enough to hold a hammer and haul lumber. He later learned to roof houses with his father. Jonathan worked side-by-side with his family throughout his life until most recently when he moved to Oxford Mississippi, and began working for Westmoreland Construction. He greatly enjoyed the work he did there, and those he worked with quickly became trusted friends. He was very grateful for all the opportunities he was given to show his skill and talent as a carpenter and for the life he was creating there. Jonathan also enjoyed fishing, playing baseball, working on his car, and playing his guitar.
Jonathan is survived by his daughters that were the light of his life who stole his heart the moment he met them Hallie Jane and Izabel Crocker; his father Johnny Crocker, and two sisters Taylor Johns and husband Josh, and Rebekah Daniel and husband Quinn all of Louisville. He also leaves behind his grandparents Charles Malcom and Mary Jane Clark of Louisville; his aunt Beth Woodcock and husband Jason of Clinton, Mississippi; and his step-father Tim Shepperd of Louisville. Also left to mourn his passing are his nephews Peyton Daniel, Kase Daniel, Owen Johns, and Beau Taylor Johns, and his nieces Scarlett Daniel and Everly Johns. Jonathan also leaves behind a host of friends and other family members. He was preceded in death by his mother Rev. Scarlet Clark Shepperd and his grandparents Billy Wayne and Willie Frances Crocker.
