Junior “Blue” Croom, 32, of Wallace left this earthly life for his eternal rest on Friday, September 29, 2017.
Born on November 4, 1984 in Duplin County, he was the son of Roger Lee Croom, Sr. of Spokane, WA and Pam Rivenbark Register and husband, Ray of Wallace. He was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, Edward Carraway, his paternal grandparents, Lawrence and Elizabeth Croom and step grandfather, Billy Register.

Junior or "Blue" as he was affectionately called, was a fun loving young man who loved life and had a heart of gold. He enjoyed fast cars, four-wheeling, motorcycles and drag racing. With a friendly personality and witty spirit, “Blue” was a joy to be around. He loved to play jokes and was a great prankster to his family and friends. He enjoyed being outside; working in the yard and building things. “Blue” will surely be missed but treasured memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and love him.
Funeral service will be held at 12 Noon on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home Wallace Chapel with the Reverend Jimmy Johnson officiating.

I got the pleasure of meeting and getting to know This young man when I worked at Phoenix Mart. He was a kind soul and always willing to help me and others. Sending many prayers to his family and loved ones.
He once drove his daughters Barbie scooter/jeep toy to the store. I laughed every time I saw him after that. He also once told a young man not to raise his voice at me and to leave the store. I will forever smile when I think of him. I'm so sorry God needed him at such a young age.
