Craig Hayden Kronman, the only son of Albert and Jeanne Kronman, grew up exploring the woods and waters on Long Island, New York.
Craig and his wife Anna Lisa recently celebrated twenty joyful years of marriage with a tour of the Pacific Northwest, including favorite spots in Mendocino and Oregon. When adventuring abroad, they were undeterred by the frequent rain as they rode bikes together and savored delicious cuisines.
Craig had a robust practice as a noted probate and tax attorney. He delighted in knowing a bit about many varied topics. He was equally devoted to sharing these tidbits with all willing listeners and he kept tax-time interesting by asking clients for their best joke along with their receipts. His kind smile and wry sense of humor endeared him to all who knew him.
He began studying the viola during his college days at Bowdoin and Stanford. He relished playing with the Prometheus symphony and with others for over thirty years.
Sailing was a lifetime passion for Craig. Taking friends out on the San Francisco Bay for picnics at Angel Island always made him smile, regardless of the weather.
French culture was a strong interest for Craig; he sought out opportunities to practice and improve his skill, including taking advanced classes en Français and visiting France.
Craig read the Bible each morning. As a lifelong Christian Scientist and an active member of First Church of Christ Scientist, Orinda, he strove to incorporate these teachings in his daily living. His legacy continues with full bookshelves, blooming gardens, hearts full of memories, and the example of a life well-lived.
