Nash N. Cronin, Jr.

November 1944 - June 2009

Nash N. Cronin, a resident of Sebastian, Fla., passed away peacefully on Monday, June 22, 2009. He was born in Tennessee, and raised in Atlanta. Many will remember Nash as owner and operator of Scorpios Beauty Salon. Prior to that, he served honorably in the Navy as an electronics engineer on the USS Enterprise. He was the only child born to the late Nash and Hazel Cronin and was the beloved husband of Deborah Cronin for over 24 years. Nash will forever be remembered by his devoted wife; his daughters, Melanie Kelly, Scarlett Wooldridge and Tara Werho; sons, Stephen and Marcus Combs; and 10 grandchildren, James, Cole, Dalton, Isabella, Brittany, Eric, Zach, Josh, Eleanor and Elias.

Nash loved fishing, fast cars, and his famous pet turtle "Hank." More than any of this, he loved his wife deeply in a way that should inspire us all. Even as his health declined and was forced to walk with a cane, he never failed to stop opening the door for his bride, Deborah.

Nash touched the lives of many people with his smile and great character. He had one living request prior to his going to be with the Lord: He would say, "Just tell everyone I've gone home!" We praise God that today Nash has his new body!

Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service on Saturday, July 11 at 11 a.m., at 1405 Indian River Drive, Sebastian, Fla., overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway (across from Earl's Hideaway).
