Krug, Dean G. (31 MAR 1929 – 12 AUG 1968)
Funeral services were held this afternoon at two o'clock from the Hoeper and Kraut Funeral Home for Dean George Krug, 39, with Rev. David T. Pankow, pastor of Zion Lutheran Church, Colby, officiating. Interment was made at Riverside Cemetery near Withee. Serving as pallbearers were Ray Petke, Arthur Jankee, Orlando Olson, Carl Buchholz, Al Bower and Milford Smith.
His family and a host of relatives and friends were shocked at learning of his death early Monday morning. He had left his home on route2, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.) at 4:30 a.m. to drive to Millston, Wisconsin, where he was employed on a road construction project by F.F. Mengel Contractors, Wisconsin Rapids. The Jackson County Corner reasoned that Dean suffered an acute heart attack while driving along River Bend Road, about 8 miles east of Millston. His car, he said, coasted to a stop off the roadway without crashing.
Dean George Krug, son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Krug, route 1, Curtiss, was born March 31, 1929 at Medford. He attended Pine Valley School in Taylor County. His marriage to Adeline Lentz took place March 19, 1949, at Withee.
He had been employed at the Frederick Post Mfg. Co. in Owen for some time prior to joining the Mengel firm as a road builder.
He was a member of St. John's Lutheran Church in Withee.
In addition to his wife and parents, he is survived by four sons, Wayne, Michael, Mark and Ricky, at home; two daughters, Mrs. Michael (Kathleen) Tomczak, Withee, and Christine at home; four sisters, Mrs. Beatrice Decker, Colby, Mrs. Mabel Neitzel, Curtiss; Mrs. Darlene Wiesneski, Lublin; and Mrs. Jane Matthews, Medford; four brothers, George Krug, Medford, William Krug, Milwaukee; Dale Krug, Marshfield, and Jerry Krug, Gilman, and one grandchild.
