My sincere condolences to Shirley and family. Many years ago, in the early 60's, I was the stock boy for Cowdrick's Drug Store. John and Bob Frickland were managers and I will always remember John's happy face. I had just graduated  High School and was waiting a couple of years before College. John made a special impression on me about what to do with my life. I even joined Lions Club because of him. He was a tremendous role model, and so full of goodness. Rest in Peace, John.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of John.  He truly demonstrated the love of Christ to everyone he encountered.  His great smile and humor brought joy and laughter to me.  My 4 years in Warren was filled with fun, friendship and love because of John and the Crone family.  I could tell numerous stories about the many times we shared together.  I know that my life was made better by Johns wisdom and friendship.  Sandy and I express our sympathy for your loss, but we celebrate the his life knowing that he is singing and rejoicing in heaven. May your entire family be filled with the presence and peace of God.  With great love,  Bob and Sandy Shirey

Please accept the heartfelt condolences of the Kane District Committee on Ministry on John's transition to the Church Triumphant. John's long service to the Committee as well as the Board of Ordained Ministry has been a steady source of wisdom and grace for all members. While we join you in mourning John's passing, we are, at the same time, uplifted by the knowledge that his work will continue to bear fruit for years to come through the clergy that have come before the Committee while John was a member. May God's love sustain you during this season of grief.

Our deepest condolences!
We knew  him as the Pharmacist who would bring surprise gifts to the door during Christmas times. Then as a Lion, he was such an inspiration to all fellow Lions.
May his soul RIP.
Remembering the family in our prayers.

John was the first boss I ever had. The rest held to high standard. He made working, as a senior in high school a joy! He was such a fair & noble man. No other boss has been quite the same. He will be missed.

My deepest sympathy to Shirley and family upon John's passing. I first met John when I joined Kappa Psi pharmaceutical fraternity of which he was Regent.  He was a senior and I was a freshman at the University of Pittsburgh, School of Pharmacy.  Our paths crossed a few years later when I moved from Erie to Warren to take a pharmacist position at Warren State Hospital and he was a community pharmacist at Cowdrick's Pharmacy.  John was not only a fraternity brother but a good friend and a man devoted to his family, profession, church and community.  May God grant him eternal life and peace for a life well lived.

I am so sorry to read of Mr. Crone's passing.  It seems like he was always a presence in church.  My favorite memories include Progressive Dinners through Youth Fellowship which always ended at the Crone home.  My sympathies and prayers to the entire family.

Shirley and family, My sincere sympathy on the passing of John, a loss not only to your family but also to the entire community of Warren, his church and, certainly, the Lions Club.  He was a man of skill and intelligence but also of great kindness and devotion to his fellow man, obviously guided by the Scriptures he faithfully followed.  Bill and Peggy Morgan
