Owen P Cruce

Owen P Cruce, 78, of Micanopy, FL, passed away, surrounded by love, on August 4, 2022.  He was born in Alachua, FL to Owen J Cruce and Edith Mathis Cruce.  Owen had an adventurous life!

He was in the Navy for 19 years, became an engineer, and he worked as a maintenance man over different properties.  He was like a Giant Leprechaun, very quiet and sweet.

Owen was in a loving committed relationship with Deborah Smith for 37 years.  Together their spirit of generosity helped many others.

He leaves behind to mourn his loss, BJ, Roger, and sisters Myrna and Mary, and many nieces and nephews.

Owen will be greatly missed by all who loved him
