Obituary for Arthur J. Kruse
Arthur John Kruse was born on March 16, 1931 in Eureka Township to John and Mildred Kruse. He was the oldest of 6 children. Arthur died Monday, March 7, 2011 at the age of 79.

He was baptized and confirmed at the North Valley Lutheran Church and remained a member there.

He lived his entire life in the North Valley area, with the exception of the two years that he served in the Army during the Korean War. When he returned from the service, he lived with and cared for his maternal grandparents. After they passed away he moved home to his parent’s farm. He was a farmer for most of his adult life. He raised crops and beef cattle.

Arthur was a very gentle, private and giving person. He loved his cats, John Deere tractors and his old “Jeep” pickup which he enjoyed driving for many years. He was an avid hunter and supporter of the NRA, belonging to the Golden Eagle Club. He loved fishing on the St. Croix River with his brother-in-law, Bernie.

He was preceded in death by his parents and sisters, Audrey Melich and Alice Johnson.

He is survived by his brothers, Robert (Janice) Kruse, Charles (Janice) Kruse; sister, Shirley (Bernie) Weeks; and many nieces and nephews.
