On February 17, 1932, John was united in marriage to Henrietta Schafer at the First Christian Reformed Church in Wellsburg. They farmed in Grundy county, and they owned and operated a service station in Wellsburg for 18 years until John retired in 1968.
John was a deacon in the Second Christian Reformed Church. He was also very active in the Community Club and dedicated to making Wellsburg a great place to live.
After his retirement, he was able to devote all his spare time to his favorite game--golf. He was a member of the Meadowbrook Golf Course, and played golf every day he possibly could.
His friendship and friendliness touched many and will be missed.
John was preceded in death by one brother, Albert, and one sister, Cornelia Harms.
He is survived by his wife, Henrietta; two sons, Larry Jon of Albuquerque, NM, and David Michael of Raleigh, NC; one brother, Martin Kruse of Eldora; and by four grandchildren.
A memorial fund has been established.
