Mr. Krueckeberg lived the essence of a disciple. Never a complaint, only great JOY in service to The Lord.

His thoughts were not of “what shall I wear” or “what shall I eat”, rather, “whom shall I clothe, feed and educate.” No one will know all of his life mission as he whispered only unto Jesus.

May Mr. Krueckeberg‘s Spirit live on as we endeavor to serve our beloved Christ. Come Lord Jesus come into our hearts.

Thank you Father for this great man.

An incredible role model of Christian faith and devotion to family. He never wavered in his commitment to either. Our world needs more Eddie Krueckeberg’s.
