June 1, 1959 - March 15, 2016
Steven (Steve) Richard Krueger went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on March 15, 2016 at 12:30 p.m. Your prayers for peace and comfort for Rachel, their daughters and his loving family are appreciated.
Steve was gifted with the ability to engage people in a way that made them feel like they were the most important person in his world at that moment. He championed, encouraged and inspired everyone who crossed his path and treated friends and strangers alike with compassion and kindness. He was a tender-hearted, generous and loving man whose life reflected his love for Jesus and his family.
Steve was a long-time member of Grace Outreach Center where he, Rachel and their daughters Michal and LeeAnn actively participated in the ministry. He led the Divorce Care Group for many years, helping many receive healing. The pre-school children in particular loved their “Gentle Giant” and sent him get well wishes on a poster-sized card, signed with their tiny hand prints.
Professionally, Steve was a successful IT Recruiter, most recently with Valtech Services for the past six years. He frequently attended the local middle and high school games where his daughters cheered and was an avid college and professional football fan.
Steve was a loving husband, caring father and devoted son and brother. He is survived by his wife Rachel (Rae Sandback), daughters Michal Lynn and LeeAnn, mother Jo Anne Krueger and sister LeeAnn “Punky” Krueger, both of Eagan, Minn., brother Paul Krueger and family of Arizona, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, his church family at Grace Outreach Center and countless friends and colleagues.
