Mr. Gary Kruse, age 70, passed away peacefully on September 29, 2020, following a long, courageous battle against multiple illnesses.
He is survived by his life partner and devoted best friend Leah Netherland. 24 years ago the entire Netherland family adopted him into our clan as an official Netherland. He always made our gatherings special with fun and amazing surprises. We will all forever miss his generosity, his humor, and his wonderfully romantic spirit which he shared with everyone he loved.
Per Gary’s wishes, there will be no visitation or services. Hager Funeral Home, in Brandenburg, has been entrusted with arrangements. Online condolences may be left at www.hagerfuneralhome.com.
