Howard A. Krause, 71, Marthasville, passed away peacefully at his home Saturday evening, Nov. 25, 2017, surrounded by his loved ones after a long battle with cancer and Parkinson's disease.

Howard was born Aug. 9, 1946, in Hermann, the son of Anton Krause and wife Flora, nee Edler. He married Bonnie Rutledge in Montgomery City Aug. 17, 1964, and to this union two children were born. They celebrated 53 years together.

Howard lived most of his life on the Krause family farm. He loved fishing and hunting, and especially loved going on hunting trips out West to Colorado and Wyoming for the bigger game of mule deer, antelope and elk. The biggest joy of his life was his girls, daughter, Denise; granddaughters, Ashley (Earnheart) Oberhaus and Dori A. Levin; and great-granddaughter, Natalie M.
