South Dakota Republican Party statement on the death of former State Senator Justin Cronin 

The South Dakota Republican Party issued the following statement from Chairman Dan Lederman on the news of the death of Justin Cronin:

“We have been informed of the untimely passing of former Republican House Assistant Majority Leader & later State Senator Justin Cronin.   Justin recently departed the legislature in August 2019 with an announcement that he was stepping back to focus his time on his ‘family, health, and career.’  No one realized how short that time would be.”

“Justin was so accomplished for his young age, and I wish words could adequately convey to his family how much his friendship and leadership was cherished by his many colleagues in State Government.  He was taken from us all far too soon.”

Services will be next week, and more information is available through Luce Funeral Home of Gettysburg.
