Marine Maj. Ricardo A. Crocker, 39, of Mission Viejo, Calif.; assigned to the 5th Civil Affairs Group, Marine Forces Reserve, Camp Lejeune, N.C.; attached to II Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward); killed May 26 in a rocket-propelled grenade explosion while conducting combat operations in Hadithah, Iraq. Known as Rick to his colleagues at the Santa Monica Police Department, where he served as an officer. Crocker easily would have risen through the ranks of his department. There was nothing that Rick ever did 50 percent. That includes his service to his country, his service to this city and his service to this department. He was the kind of officer whose humor and dedication to duty was infectious. Crocker started working with the Police Activities League in 2003, supervising field trips, including forays to the Marine base at Camp Pendleton and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. He also taught cardiopulmonary resuscitation classes and a preparatory class for the Scholastic Aptitude Test, and wrote a grant to start a hiking class. He is survived by his mother, Jeanette; his father, Curtis; two sisters, Marisa and Maria; and a brother, Carlos.

A sister, Linda, died 11 years ago. He was 39.
