Obituary for Virgil "Gene" Cron

Virgil “Gene” Cron, 72, of Boonville, Indiana passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 at his home in Boonville, surrounded by his loved ones.
He was born in Boonville to Jaunita and Charles Cron, who both preceded him in death.
He attended school in Tennyson and graduated from Boonville High School in 1963. He worked at Baum’s Grocery Store and was part owner of Valley Auto Sales before owning and operating G & G Auto Salvage and Used Cars until his retirement in 2016. He loved fast cars, Chevy trucks, Sunday breakfasts with friends and drag racing with his family and friends. He especially loved spending time with his granddaughter, Presley. She was a constant source of entertainment, pride, and joy for him. He could be found drag racing in the Tri-State Area most weekends over the past twenty plus years and would always lend you gas, an air tank, a tool, or a hand if you needed it.
He is survived by his loving wife of almost 45 years, Marlene, daughters Jaclyn (Dale) Eubanks of Bargersville, Indiana and Karen Cron, soon to be son in law Kyle Krepistman of Long Beach, California, grandchildren Presley and Tanner Eubanks, brother Jerry Cron, sister in-law Myrna (Tad) Rose, numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives, including Tim (Bridget) Cron, Kelly (Terry) Floyd, Logan Cron and Miranda Floyd, who he was like a second father/grandfather to.
He was a great man who helped and was loved by many. He was the best of all of us. His generous and kind spirit were a blessing to this world and everyone who knew him was better for it. He will be greatly missed.
Services are 2 P.M. Sunday, May 6, 2018 at Koehler Funeral Home in Boonville, Indiana with Pastor Robert Noble officiating. Burial is in Folsomville Cemetery in Folsomville, Indiana.
Visitation is from 2 P.M. until 8 P.M. Saturday, May 5, 2018 at the funeral home in Boonville.
