Obituary for Robert Cronenwett

Robert Cronenwett
Robert (Bob) Alan Cronenwett, 85, died on Friday August 18th, 2017, at home in Palm City, Florida, surrounded by family.

Bob was born Nov. 25, 1931 in Quincy, Massachusetts to Paul and Ruth Cronenwett. Bob served in the Navy from 1955 to 1957. He received an MBA from New York University and later went into the Advertising/Public Relations field in New York City for almost his entire career. He spent most of his life in Chatham New Jersey, where he raised his family.

Since the Navy, Bob had great wanderlust and travelled the world, visiting over 75 countries and was fascinated by different cultures and cuisines. The other interest that permeated his life was his great passion for jazz music, manifest by his extensive collection of recording and artifacts associated with jazz, and his enthusiasm to relay its history to all who were interested. Eventually he became President of the Treasure Coast Jazz Society in Vero Beach, Florida, the community where he retired. Bob was also a voracious reader, amateur photographer, and lover of cinema and art.

He is survived by daughter Kim Cronenwett (husband Richard Nicholls), son Christopher Cronenwett (wife Meredith Cronenwett), and son David Cronenwett. He had four grandchildren whom he adored. He is also survived by his brother Richard Cronenwett, of Naples, Florida. He will be greatly missed.

Forest Hills Funeral Home of Palm City, Florida is taking care of all arrangements. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Bob’s name to Treasure Coast Jazz Society at 4731 North A1A, Suite 233, Vero Beach, Florida 32963. 772-234-4600 or tcjazzsociety@gmail.com.
