HENRY W. KROECKER, JR., age 84, beloved husband of 64 years to Jeane (nee Patterson), loving father of Linda Driscoll (Greg), Marjorie Jupina (Mike), and the late Matthew Kroecker, cherished Hoppa of Morgan Jupina, brother of Margaret Olsen and the late Laurie Broadwater, committed mentor of Jeffrey Campbell. Known as ‘Butch’ to family and friends, he was a devoted family man who treasured time spent with his loved ones. Butch was a life-long Cleveland sports enthusiast and never missed watching a game in the comfort of his “man cave.” He appreciated a fine cigar, camping with family at Pymatuning State Park and fishing with his handmade fishing rods. He was a faithful man and loyal member of St. Thomas Lutheran Church in Rocky River. His vast knowledge on a host of subjects earned him the affectionate nickname “Middle-Aged Man.” Butch enjoyed a 40-year career with Chevrolet Motor Division. He will be remembered as a teacher, a storyteller and a guiding light to his family and friends. Butch lived life to the fullest and will be deeply missed. Visitation is WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 at 12:30 pm at BAKER-OSINSKI-KENSINGER FUNERAL HOME, 206 FRONT STREET, BEREA, OHIO. Celebration of Life service to follow at 1:30 PM.
