Dr. Jonathan H. Croll, age 71, passed away on the afternoon of March 31, 2021 in his home in Royersford, PA with his wife Carole and her daughter Theodora by his side.
Born in Philadelphia on January 7, 1950, he was the son of the late Lionel and the late Evelyn (Rosen) Croll. He is a graduate of Upper Darby High School and the University of Pittsburgh where he earned a degree in dentistry. He served in the US Navy during the Vietnam War and received the National Defense Service Medal.
Dr. Croll opened his dental practice in 1976 in Naperville, Illinois where he also served as a member of the Naperville Art League and an avid participant in city activities. He was a talented artist, drummer, guitarist, banjo, and Native American flute player, as well as a gardener, golfer, racquetball player, and yoga enthusiast. He enjoyed bicycling, kayaking, and walking the river trails near his home. He was especially fond of his pet schnauzers.
Jonathan tended the earth, the birds and plants, his family and friends, his home, and his marriage with loving care. He made everyone he met feel valued; he was the first to lend a hand. Jonathan loved life, exuded positivity, and took pleasure in making those around him laugh. He is survived by his wife Carole A. (Ziegler) Croll of Royersford, his brother Dr. Theodore Croll of Doylestown, PA, his sister Susan Monasevitch of Gibbsboro, NJ, and his sister Carolyn Croll of Philadelphia.
The funeral service for Dr. Jonathan H. Croll will be announced.
