Cronin and his wife, Theresa, of Lexington, Mass.; a sister, Vickie Winston of Boulder, Colo.; five grandchildren, Bobby Gleason and his wife, Iona Leighton of Denver, Colo., Sammy Gleason of Colorado Springs, Colo., Tim Gleason of Winona, Minn., Aurora Fullerton and her wife, Miranda of Plainfield, N.H., and Abigail Cronin of Lexington, Mass.
