Loving son of the late Jeremiah P. and Katherine Cronin. Cherished brother of the late Patrick, Hannah and Denis P. Cronin, Sgt. QPD. Also survived by 19 loving nieces and nephews in both the United States and Ireland. Mr. Cronin was born in Gneeveguilla, County Kerry, Ireland and worked on the family dairy farm until coming to the United States.
