He was born April 25, 1952, in San Francisco, California, to the late Richard Cronce and Patricia Bucklin Cronce. Brian was a very artistic and creative man. He enjoyed so many hobbies: drawing, painting, building furniture, building airplane models, collecting and working on junk cars and good cars, too. 😁 (A little humor there. Lol) He absolutely LOVED music and singing. The family and I have very fond memories of him singing.. in the house, with my mom, in the car, Aspen Dental, doctor’s offices and even the hospital. People would join him in song wherever he was. He also loved air shows, playing pool and be with his family, grandchildren and pets. He was the BEST Papa and animal lover. The pets and grand babies always loved him the most! He will be greatly missed.
The family will have a service at a later date.
