Superintendent Robert Lloyd Cronin (1938-2021)

Rob was born December 17, 1938 to Robert and Aurelia (Rack) Cronin.

We believe he was appointed as a Guard at the Cincinnati Workhouse.  By 1988, the Workhouse was taken over by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office and the name changed to Cincinnati Correctional Institute (CCI).  On January 22, 1988, he took over as it Superintendent.  We believe when CCI closed, he went on to work for the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office and served the community for up to forty years.

Superintendent Cronin died on September 23, 2021.

We believe he is survived by siblings, Rosemary Schibi, Betty Ann King, Doris Jean Schwegler, and Michael Cronin.

A celebration of life was held at LaRosa’s Pizzeria on Boudinot Avenue on October 4, 2021.
