Obituary

Johannes Christiaan Kruger, of St. Joseph, passed away peacefully at his home in St. Joseph on Tuesday, June 1, 2021.

Johannes was born November 10, 1955 in Nigel, South Africa to Stephanus and Aletta (deLange) Kruger. On September 22, 2012 he married the love of his life, Marolien Kriel and was a devoted and cherished husband ever since. Johan was very mechanically inclined; he built his own Austin Healey, but enjoyed all cars and motorcycles. He loved to work with his hands, and upon moving to St. Joseph, showcased his woodworking skills on his new fixer upper home. Johan will be remembered for his easy-going nature; people were always drawn to his friendly nature.

Johannes is survived by his wife, Marolien Kruger; and his siblings, Wimpie Kruger, Faansie Kruger, Drieka Furstenburg, and Wilna van As. He is preceded in death by his parents.

Friends and family will gather to celebrate Johan’s life at 9am, Tuesday, June 15, 2021 at Starks & Menchinger Chapel. Memorial contributions may be given to Caring Circle Hospice.

My sincerest condolences to all who loves and knew Johan.

I met Johann once.
I remember the day well as it had a big impact on me.
Even though he was not well a the time, he's kind and very spirited nature was genuine and infectious.
I shared a few stories with him and left inspired to remember to see the good around me.

Rus in vrede

Oom Johan... gone but never forgotten.
Dankie vir al die goeie memories...
Ons het altyd so lekker daar geswem en gespeel op die ou DKW chassis en in klein blou Fiat 500. Ek sal die Mini, Capri, Alfa en die Mazda bakkie ook nooit vergeet nie- karre is in ons bloed
Ons het baie tyd daar spandeer van kleins af en piesang Pronutro was groot op die breakfast menu. Ek onthou nog daai ma'se hond- Sheba en ook die mal gaanse.
Oom Johan het my getrain vir atletiek en hyt nogals als saam my gedoen ook.
Ek kon die dag nie glo toe hy die Vauxhall vir my gee as my eerste kar nie.... Hyt daar agter in die erf gestaan- verbleikde verf, pap wielle en die vloer was heeltemal weg geroes. Kyk, dit was nou 'n projek en 'n half maar ons het hom aan die gang gekry en begin regmaak. Dis daar waar ek geleer het van skuur- daai enamel verf was tough!
Die Healey is natuurlik die ding waarvan almal weet en meeste van ons het 'n ietsie bygedra aan Oom Johan se projek.
' n Handdruk soos 'n man van staal- ek kon dit nooit verstaan nie haha!
Altyd posetief oor als en 'n grappie hier en daar. Ek wens daar was meer mense soos my Oom Johan en eks dankbaar vir als wat hy my geleer het en die invloed wat hy op my lewe as jong mannetjie gehad het.
Rus sag my Oom, ons mis jou

Ouboet

Johan was altyd 'n voorbeeld van stemmigheid en deursettingsvermoë vir my. Terwyl ek op skool was, was atletiek als vir my. Johan het my onder sy vlerk geneem en ek het smiddae as hy van die werk af kom saam met hom geoefen. Ons het van voor die huis in die veld gedraf tot waar die parkie was en terug. Wel, Johan het net vir my gesê " jy bly by of raak agter". Sjoe, dit het gevoel of hy hierdie reuse tree gee! Ek het maar probeer byhou en dit het my deursettingsvermoë geleer en vasbyt.
Ek het my ook verwonder dat Johan net aanhou studeer het. En bygesê met onderskeidings! Johan was 'n rots vir my
Ons het nie mekaar se deurdrumpels deur getrap nie maar het geweet as daar 'n probleem is kan ek na hom gaan.
Johan het vir ons ander so goeie voorbeeld gestel en ons kan net daarop probeer voortbou. Johan se grappies en fotos of video's op die groep het altyd my dag gemaak. 'n Situasie of iets wat gebeur het was op so manier vertel dat ek gelag het tot die trane geloop het. Rus sag Johan en dans saam met die Engele in die Hemel, sonder enige pyn en moeite. Ons hier op aarde het 'n diamant verloor maar die Hemel is baie ryker. Mis jou Ouboet.

My parents would always get in trouble if they didn't drop me off at Uncle Johan's house first when we went to visit my grandparents in Nigel❤️
