Gary Lee Cron, age 72, of North Bend, Ohio, passed away on Tuesday, August 24, 2021 at home with his family. He was born on July 31, 1949 in Celina to the late Robert L. and N. Jean (Eichenauer) Cron. On August 21, 1971, he married Bonita "Gae" Lehman who survives living in North Bend OH. He is survived by his children Chad (Hollie) Cron of Oxford OH, Ben Cron of Cincinnati OH, Nathan (Madeline) Cron of Newport Beach CA, three grandchildren (Evalyn, Emersyn, Easton), brothers Dan Cron of Santa Fe NM and Rick (Patti) Cron of Montgomery OH.
Gary graduated from Celina High School with the Class of 1967, then received his Bachelor's Degree from Purdue University and his graduate degree from Central Michigan University. He retired from Procter and Gamble as a Project Manager in their pharmaceutical division.
When living in Celina, Gary was a member of the St. John Lutheran Church. In his youth he obtained an Eagle Scout Rank - Post 114. The most significant event during high school was meeting the love of his life, which evolved into a 50-year marriage that they celebrated on August 21, 2021.
He enjoyed having experiences and making memories with his family. Later in life he particularly adored putting smiles on his grandchildren's faces. Travelling, Cincinnati sports and working on special projects were also activities he found fulfilling.
