Lifelong Kenai resident and Alaska Native Randy C. Cronce, 58, died Sunday, June 6, 2010, at South Peninsula Hospital in Homer.
A celebration of life will be held at 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 15, at the Moose Family Center in Kenai. Everyone is welcome to come share a memory that you have of Randy.
Mr. Cronce was born May 6, 1952, in Anchorage. He grew up in Kenai and graduated from Kenai Central High School in 1972. Shortly after graduation he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served until he was honorably discharged in 1975.
Mr. Croce worked as a maintenance worker at what is now Agrium. He worked there for 30 years until Agrium closed. He then worked for Alaska Abatement. He also was a member of the Moose Family Center, CIRI, and Kenai Native Association. He enjoyed shooting pool, playing horseshoes, camping, clam digging, fishing and bowling.
"He was a very giving person. He was always there when there was a need. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and son," his family said. "He loved working on his house and yard, and always had a project going. He was also a very good handy man."
Mr. Cronce was preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Dolly Turner, Ronnie Lind, Gracie Lindquist, and Linda Miller; and brothers, Billy and Louis Miller.
He is survived by his wife of 10 years, Sharon Moore of Kenai; brothers, Alfred Miller of Anchorage, and Frank Miller of Soldotna; sisters, Nina Mercer and Virginia Rude, both of Eagle River, and Mary Harris of Wisconsin; sons, Randall 'Scott' Cronce, Anthony Cronce, Chris Conce and Russell Cronce all of Kenai; and 12 grandchildren.
