Interment Information

Krause, Karl "Rudy"

It is with heavy hearts we announce his passing at the age of 81 years, after a brief but brave battle with cancer. Beloved husband to Eleanor. Dear father to Patti Scott (Bob), Paul Krause (Marsha White), Lisa Batke (Rob). Special grandpa to Ryan Scott. Rudy was predeceased by his parents William and Maria and brother Bill (Annie). He is also survived by good friend and nephew Eric Krause (Lynda), sister-in-law Donna Young (Jack), nephew Brian and nieces Lori and Susan. Will be missed by his beloved canine friend Ink. Dad followed in his fathers footsteps as a commercial fisherman and was a top producer during his time. Rudy was known for his strong will to succeed and he fought that battle until the very end. It seems all too soon dad, but we know the seas were getting rough and you couldn't make any more course changes, so we had to say goodbye to our skipper. The old skipper always use to say, if my ashes could be returned to our fishing grounds the perch would be grinning from ear to ear and saying we won't have to worry about that guy anymore. You will be in our hearts forever, we love you and miss you. A very special thank you to Dr. Horen and the staff at Leamington District Memorial Hospital for your care and compassion. At Rudy's request, a private family funeral service and cremation has taken place. Memorial donations may be made to the Leamington Hospital Foundation by contacting the Reid Funeral Home, 14 Russell Street Leamington (519-326-2631) or online at
