    Son of the late Charles A. and Lillian O. (Smith) Cron, he was born Feb. 18, 1934, at Rosencrans Hospital in East Stroudsburg, Pa. He was a lifelong resident of Dingmans Ferry.

    Leroy started his early working career in carpentry work alongside his father. After graduating from Milford High School, Class of 1951, he served his country in the U.S. Army from 1956 to 1962. He then worked for Dewey B. Kingston Construction Company for over 40 years, building many homes and buildings in Pike County and the Poconos.
