David Krumm

March 29, 1944June 26, 2020

David Morris Krumm was born March 29, 1944 to Andrew Krumm and Phoebe Schlieper Krumm. He passed away June 26, 2020 in Merced at the age of 76 after a long illness.

He is preceded in death by his parents and brothers Rene and Lowell Krumm. He is survived by his brothers Richard (Nancy), Michael (Donna) Krumm; sisters, Emma Wenger and Merilyn Reitnauer; sister in-laws, Cathy Krumm and Carol Krumm; friend, Sandy Gonella and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

David graduated from Merced High School in 1963. After graduation he worked for Shannon Pump for many years. He then went to work for Merced City in the water department as an electrician until his retirement. David's hobbies included driving race cars at the Merced Speedway as well as other race tracks in California. After racing he became involved in off road dune buggys, going to various off road rallies in California and Nevada, enjoying the sport with his brothers and friends at other off road designated areas. David's latest project was a one seater rail that he had been working on for a while. Recently with the help of his brother Mike, they had made enough progress and could actually see the finish line. He was looking forward to one final run in Hawthorne, Nevada in August. Unfortunately, he ran out of time.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

As a child in early 70's I watched Lumpy drive a convertible Chevelle open faced helmet with his beard blowing in the wind. Smooth and fast God Speed #1

I will always remember you with a smile on my face and now, with a bit of sadness because I won't be able to spend more time with you, as I was so looking forward to. You made me laugh, taught me how to drive, and showed me unconditional love. I am so happy I got to see you in April and I wish we could of had that lunch at Jantz. I will never forget you and will always love you like a father.
Much love to your girlfriend and family.
LOVE YOU always, XO, Christina

Carol and I were very sad when the calls came in from cousins, Emma and Eleanor about their brother David passing last Friday morning. I had kept in touch by phone with David until recently offering him hope, prayers, and God’s peace.
It was a special family gathering during Lowell’s funeral last March, although, David was hospitalized for a couple of days. We spent some quality time at the hospital and then back at Cathy and Rene’s home in Merced with David and the Krumm family. God’s Blessings to all.
