A great man and a caring individual. I only knew him vaguely from my work place and him being a regular, but I hope he has some sausage pizza in heaven. You will be missed.
From the first time they met so many years ago until the last time him and My Gandpa "Fat Daters" were together they were always 2 of a kind and even through Bill wasn't born a Daters he fit into the family perfectly.
Much Love to Nan & The Family.
Bill Krause was one of the best, most successful and most colorful business leaders in Iowa history. We'll all be telling Krause stories forever!
Thoughts and prayers to Nancy and family..Bill was a true friend and supporter to all of us in the Hampton area...as an employee of KWGG years ago.. I was honored to have gotten to know Bill.. And as a parent I was proud that Bill donated the scholarship in honor of Berry Johnson.... former high school principal in Hampton... which our son , Travis, received in 1999. We have lost a good friend.
I worked for Bill back in the early 80's in Hampton. He was so influential in my life. I have so much respect for him He changed my life and I will miss him.
My deepest sympathies to the Krause family. Bill and Nancy showed me great kindness and generosity over the years while I was a kid in Hampton. I will always have a special place in my heart for the entire family. God Bless.
My parents enjoyed the Krause family as neighbors.
To the Krause family. I worked for Kum & Go 20 years ago and then later I managed one of the stores in oil boom North Dakota. I still remember his description of how to clean a door! :). My sympathies go out to you all for Mr Krause is one man I had always respected.
Bill was very generous in giving me some Iowa basketball tickets on a couple of occasions, I can't help but think that today he and Jim Zabel are up there today talking Iowa Hawkeye sports. My sympathy to his family and may he rest in peace. Karen Wheeler, Hampton, Iowa

Bill & Nan opened their hearts and homes to my mother in later years, allowing her to connect with her long-lost family. I am grateful to them for this as it meant a lot to her. It is obvious that Bill had a great sense of family and community and dedicated his life to both. I honor his efforts as I'm sure God does.
One thing I always loved about Bill is that he always engaged everyone in a room. He would talk to the people he needed to, but also would talk to the spouses, waiters, bartenders, valets, and anyone who was assisting with an event. He will be missed!
One of my heros in life. My parents had many good times with Bill & Nancy. My thoughts and prayers are with the Krause family.
We are sorry for the loss of your loved one. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
Prayers of comfort and peace for all - we are so appreciative of all the encouragement and support Bill and the Krause Corporation provided the ministry of the Newman Catholic Student Center in Iowa City, Iowa.
God Bless, Fr. Ed Fitzpatrick, Director
