Francis L. Cron  

Francis L. (Babe) Cron, 77, of 116 W. High St., died at 1 p.m. in Good Samaritan Hospital, Dayton. He was born Sept. 9, 1905 in Pittsburgh, Pa., to the late L. C. and Florence Cron KUNKLE Cron.  (Personal comment -- Francis was born to Florence and her first husband, Clifford Scott Hixon.  For some reason, the marriage did not last and her sonís last name was always Cron.)  His wife, the former Martha Henke, died in 1957.  Mr. Cron was a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church and had served in the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force, retiring from the U.S.A.F.  Surviving are one daughter, Mrs. Ellen C. White, Troy; three grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Arrangements are pending at the Fisher-Cheney-Cron Funeral Home, Troy.
