Craig "Cochise" Alan Brocka, 63, of Dumont, passed away Tuesday, November 6, 2018, at Muse Norris Hospice in Mason City, Iowa. He was born September 27, 1955, in Waverly, Iowa, to Melvin and Dorothy (Groen) Brocka.

Craig attended school in Greene, Iowa, and worked as a heavy equipment operator, running backhoe for Brocka Tile. Craig loved listening to Johnny Horton and loved to dance. People would clear the dance floor when he did his one legged dance move. Craig had a "Don't think about it, just do it" mentality and instilled this in his kids. He truly loved spending time with his children, grandchildren and great grandchild. Craig was non-judgmental and a listening ear, offering common sense advice to many. Though when he thought you were doing wrong, a shaking of his finger and his look of "I don't think so" let you know differently. His smile will be missed by not only his family, but by everyone that he was proud to call friend.

Craig is survived by his daughter Melissa (Lance Alderson) Brocka of Mason City, daughter Crystal (TJ) Haas of Madelia, Minnesota, daughter Naomi (Jake) Froyum of West Concord, Minnesota, daughter Emily (Jeremy Knock) Brocka of Clarksville, son Jeremy Brocka of Dumont, honorary daughter Macey Rohlfsen, grandchildren Connor, Devon, Hunter, Gage, Tanner, Mackenna (Nathan), Kade, Kaleb, Autumn, Coy, Levi, Keeley, Paisley, Hadley, great-granddaughter Kinsley, mother Dorothy Brocka of Bristow, brother Merlyn Brocka, sister Renae (Ben) Buresh, brother Dennis (Marilyn) Brocka, sister Mary (Dean) Peterson, sister Cindy (Daryl) Norman, along with many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father Melvin Brocka and infant brother Jack Brocka.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to Craig's family to offset funeral expenses.

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to family and friends. May all of your good memories be greater than your sadness during this difficult time. (Isaiah 25:8)

I think I've know Cochise pretty much forever! He was a great friend! Partied with him in our younger years. Loved his ole Monte Carlo. But he would never let me drive it. Lol . Went out with him a couple of times! He was a great all around guy. Nothing he wouldn't do for you!!! Him and Dad loved to play cards and BS. He always had a smile and a kind word! He will truly be missed!
