Harry Dietrich Krueger, of Winkler, Manitoba, passed away peacefully at Boundary Trails Health Centre on Saturday, June 5, 2021. Harry is survived by his sister, Lillian Krueger, of Winkler, and a great many cousins. He was predeceased by his parents Dietrich and Elizabeth Krueger of Brandon.

Born November 19, 1940 in Brandon, Harry spent his early years on the family farm near Douglas, Manitoba, a much-cherished son who was always at his father's side to help run the farm operation. Whether it was seeding, haying time or harvest, Harry was out there and ready to lend a helping hand. His recollections of those early years were important to him and remained treasured memories. He clearly loved farm life and all it entailed.

Harry attended the typical early prairie educational facility - the one-room Derry School near Douglas. His Christian faith was always an integral part of Harry's world and he particularly enjoyed the fellowship that came with it. He was baptized in 1964 at the Mennonite Brethren Church at Justice, Manitoba. Whether it was at Justice, Richmond Park MB in Brandon or at their Winkler church, Sunday service was a given for Harry until Covid-19 came along, that is.

When the Krueger family retired from farming, Harry embraced city life in Brandon. He loved watching hockey and reading the weekly paper to keep up with community events and news. Upon his father's passing, Harry, Lillian and their mother moved to Winkler. There, Harry threw himself into volunteerism with daily work at the Mennonite Central Committee Thrift Store to fold bags and attend to other tasks.

Harry was known for his enthusiastic, not to mention firm, handshakes which were his way of expressing his heartfelt appreciation of the relationship. Family relationships were always important to Harry. In later years, Harry and his sister turned to a tried-and-true way of bringing cousins and family members together annually by hosting large birthday parties. To those who knew him, Harry always stood tall, talked softly and left an enduring memory about his approach to life.

Donations in memory of Harry may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

Family members wish to thank the doctors and other members of the health care team at Boundary Trails for their tender care of Harry. A special thanks also to Maria Sawatzky for her devotion to Harry and Lillian as their caregiver.
