Greensburg —

Mr. Cromer was a veteran and he earned two bronze stars. In 1942, he volunteered with the Air Force and was trained as a glider pilot. The Air Force overestimated how many pilots they would need and he was discharged. He then volunteered with the U.S. Army. His assignment was with field artillery. He worked in the survey section and served in the European Theater of Operations.

He married Jacqueline Bodenheimer on December 8, 1951 in Freeburn, Ky., and she survives. Other survivors include his daughters, Rhonda Cromer of Whitesburg, Ky., Jenny Lu Cromer (Jim Logan) of New Orleans, La. and Mary Jane (Lynn) Shireman of Hartsville; his five grandchildren, David Cromer Logan, Ethan Henry Shireman, James Robert Logan, Hannah Lynn Shireman and Laura Emily Logan; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, his sisters, Mattye Oliver, Virginia Cummins and Louise Smith, and his brothers, Reed and Riney Cromer.

The funeral service will begin at 1 p.m. on Monday, September 30, 2013 at the Bass & Gasper Funeral Home in Westport. Burial will follow at the Westport Cemetery with military graveside services. A time of visitation will be held on Sunday, September 29, 2013 from 2 until 6 p.m. at the funeral home. Online condolences can be made to the family at www.bassgasper.com.
