Obituary of Paul Krueger

Krueger, Paul Gerhard

Feb 13, 1948 – Feb 22, 2018

It is with sadness and yet a deep peace that we share the passing of our husband, Dad, and Opa – Paul Krueger. 

He lived his four year prostate cancer journey with grace, humour and determination.  He never let the cancer rule his life.  In his last days he was ready to trade in his old body for a new model.  We will miss his love of life and love for us.

Paul is survived by his wife Mary (Derksen), children Jennie & Colin Wiebe, Jeremy & Marsha Krueger, grandchildren Naomi, Josh & Zoe Wiebe, Daniel & Maaike Krueger; siblings Mary Anne & Eric Klaassen, Arthur & Anita Krueger; Paul was brother-in-law to Erna & John Dick, Harold & JoAnne Derksen.  He will also be missed by nieces, nephews and many friends.  Predeceased by son Steven Krueger (2006) and grandson Nathan Wiebe (2007).

The family would also like to extend thanks to Paul’s medical team including Dr. Goel, Dr. Winquist as well as Nurse Genna from Bayshore for her wonderful care & compassion over the last month.

Family & friends will be received at Reid Funeral Home & Reception Centre, 14 Russell St. Leamington on Wednesday, Feb 28 from 2-5pm and 7-9pm.  All are invited to the committal & burial service on Thursday, March 1 at 1pm, Erie Cemetery, on Cemetery Rd. Wheatley, followed by memorial service and celebration of life at 2:30pm, North Leamington United Mennonite Church, 625 Rd. 6, Leamington. Officiants are Jim Loepp-Thiessen and Alicia Good. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to UMEI Christian Highschool or Erie Shores Hospice.
