John A. Tronolone, 68, of Barnegat, N.J., a teacher at Philadelphia High School for Girls for more than 30 years, died Sunday, Nov. 20, at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta of complications from a stroke.
Mr. Tronolone spent his career teaching science at Girls' High, where he was also technical director for theater productions. Besides the students in his biology and chemistry classes, hundreds of girls knew him as head of the "Stage Kroo," his son John said.
After retiring in 1994, Mr. Tronolone volunteered at the Franklin Institute for several years.
He was a native of Valley Stream, N.Y., and earned bachelor's and master's degrees in education from the State University of New York in Oneonta.
