Police spokesperson Nicole Acker said there are no new leads in the case.
Mr. Cronin, who owned an insurance brokerage in Menlo Park and belonged to the Menlo Circus Club, died May 30. The San Mateo County Coroner's Office declined to release the cause of death, and no information was available as to whether it was related to the stabbing.
His friends and family held the funeral service at the Church of the Nativity in Menlo Park, followed by a reception at the Menlo Circus Club.
Long-time friend Doug Lawrence enjoyed playing basketball with Mr. Cronin. "I often defended him because I was so awful at the game and he was so willing to extend me a little grace," he said, and described a man who played a strategic game. "If he got away with a particularly clever move, he got a little devilish look in his eye, and the side of his lips would turn up slightly — sort of a 'gotcha' look. He loved to play like a clever, bright, and skillful kid, which he pretty much was. He was a wonder to watch! You can form a treasured friendship with a man on the basketball court."
