Eugene Krumm - December 26, 2012

Eugene Henry Krumm, born to Henry and Marie Krumm on Jan. 13, 1943, died and went to be with his Lord and Savior on Dec. 26, 2012.

Gene was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He grew up on a farm three miles north of Ovid and graduated from Ovid High School in 1961. From the time he was a young man, he loved farming and began to farm after his high school graduation.

It was a short time later he met the love of his life, Dorthy Grasz, during sugar beet harvest in the fall of 1965. They married Sept. 4, 1966, and to this union two children were born: Kimberly Ann and Jeffrey Todd.

Eugene became known as “Tiny” to his friends and neighbors who farmed in Ovid, Chappell, Neb., Champion, Neb., Venango, Neb. and Palisade, Neb., along with Elkhart, Kan. He retired from farming in 2000 and worked for Central Sand and Gravel until he fully retired in 2007.

After retirement, he continued to farm part time in the spring and fall for his good friend Joe Shank. His greatest enjoyment was buying tractors and machinery for his grandchildren, Easton and Alex.

Eugene was preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Marie Krumm; brother, Kenneth; nephews, Philip and Paul Krumm; father- and mother-in-law, Benjamin and Theda Grasz; brother-in-law, Arthur; sister-in-law, Edna Quarter; sister-in-law, Clara Dickensen; brother-in-law, Clarence; infant brother-in-law, Leroy; brother-in-law, Harvey; sister-in-law, Rita Powell; and brother-in-law, Jess.

He is survived by his wife, Dorthy of Ovid; daughter, Kimberly of Cheyenne, Wyo.; son, Jeffrey and wife Becky, and grandsons, Easton and Alex of Cambridge, Wis.; sister, Judy Powell and husband Ted of Southlake, Texas; brother, Gary and wife Carol of Holyoke; brother-in-law, Albert of North Platte, Neb.; sister-in-law, Helen Powell and husband Dee of Arvada; brother-in-law, Wayne Powell of Brighton; sister-in-law, Vera Bottrell and husband Wayne of Kings Beach, Calif.; brother-in-law, Victor of North Platte, Neb.; sister-in-law, Beth Cheleen and husband Darold of Chappell, Neb.
