Thomas K. Krug, Sr.

Thomas Krug-revisedThomas K. Krug, Sr., 59, of 8342 SR 219, Brockway, passed away unexpectedly Friday, July 29, 2016, at his residence.

He was born April 16, 1957, in St. Marys, son of the late Hilary Krug and Lillian McClintock Krug, who survives, of St. Marys. He was a lifelong resident of the area, residing the past five years in Brockway, and was a graduate of St. Marys Area High School, Class of 1975.  He was an employee of Atlas Pressed Metals in DuBois.

On, November 15, 1975, in the Queen of the World Church, he married his high school sweetheart, Kathryn A. Wolfe, who survives. He is also survived by a daughter, Angela Breitkreutz and her husband Daniel of Murrysville, PA; two sons, Nicholas C. Krug and his partner Michael Cutts of Edgewood, PA and Thomas K. Krug, Jr. and his wife Courtney of Brookville; six grandchildren, Madison Breitkreutz, Sydney “Peanut” Breitkreutz, Grace Breitkreutz, Jack Krug, Charlie Krug, and Sam Krug; a sister, Linda Feronti and her husband Ed of Johnsonburg; two brothers, Kenneth Krug and Mark Krug, both of St. Marys; and by his mother-in-law, Sara Wolfe Facchine of St. Marys.

Tom enjoyed gardening, woodworking, and building things for his children and grandchildren, who he adored. He was a jack-of-all-trades and never believed in the word “can’t”.

Perhaps what summarizes this man’s life best can be found in a note written by his granddaughter:

Dear Pop,  I know you couldn’t help leaving us but I just want you to know that I miss you. I was your Peanut. You taught me how to play softball and improve on basketball, you taught me how to fix things like the garage GG broke, I helped you fix the brakes on your car, and to do so many other little things. From now on I will play basketball and volleyball in memory of you. I will play to make you proud every time I step on the court. I will remember you in every history class I take and all the history you told me. It will be hard, but I’ll get through this, but I will never forget you. I love you Pop. Please give me a sign that you are here.

His signs will be all around us in the lives that live on in his wife of 40 years, his three beautiful children and 6 adoring grandchildren.  Whether it is on a field, court, outdoors, classroom, or in the everyday matters, his memory will live on in all of us.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in the Queen of the World Church on Tuesday, August 2, 2016, at 10:00 AM, with the Rev. Ross Miceli, officiating. Burial will be in the St. Mary’s Cemetery.

Visitation is at the Lynch-Radkowski Funeral Home on Monday evening from 6:00 until 8:00 PM.

Tom was a wonderful man. He always made me smile. I knew him from his time at Metaldyne in Ridgway. I can’t believe he is gone. My deepest sympathy your family.

Please accept our deepest sympathies in the loss of your loved one. Donny worked with Tom at Atlas & so liked working with him. I had talked on the phone with him several times. Donny says he will surely be missed at work. He is listed in Donny’s phone as Gadget Man, as they all called him at work in fun.

I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. Death is never welcomed, but it seems to be something we all are accustomed too. Please be assured that the bible promises that God will soon undo death (Revelation 21:3,4) and he promises in John 5:28,29 to resurrect our loved ones right here on earth. I hope these promises as well as your wonderful memories bring you comfort.

I wish to send my sincere sympathy to all the family of Thomas Krug. Thomas was my first cousin. Since I am disabled and live in Erie I was not able to go to the funeral. Blessings to all the family.
