Survived by wife of 67 years, Gloria Weiser Krause; children, Robert R. and Joan Krause; and many friends. For Bob, no matter who you were, you were a "pal" and he likely had a joke for you.

He retired from Nationwide Insurance with nearly 30 years of service as an editor for many publications. An avid reader of 3 newspapers daily, he was also a contributor to The Booster since 1990. Bob worked as a volunteer for many years on behalf of people with disabilities with ARC, ADD, FCBDD, and Sports Club at Easton. He traveled throughout the U.S. with family and friends, and enjoyed a membership at Olympic Swim Club since 1959. A lifelong Yankees fan, he was present for Lou Gehrig's last appearance at Yankee Stadium. Facilitated the current events at Westminster Thurber for close to 10 years. He had a passion for many kinds of music and was a lover of all the arts. The family will have a memorial celebration at a later date.
