Mr. Kretzer loved his God first, his family second, and next his church family. He was active in his church and taught the men's class over 40 years at the Killen Church of Christ, where he also served as a deacon. He lived his life as an example that his family and others could see God. He also loved to laugh and make others feel good about themselves. He claimed the promise in Philippians 4:13, that he could do all things through Christ that strengthened him. Today his family feels that a prince and a great man has fallen, II Samuel 3:38.
The family would like to especially thank Dr. Mann for his kindness shown to our dear Dad.
