Marvin William KREHMEYER Obituary
KREHMEYER, Marvin William Marvin William Krehmeyer, asleep in Jesus, October 18, 2017, in Dunwoody, Georgia. He is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Sharon Fischer Krehmeyer, and sons Kevin (Elaine) of Johns Creek, Dean (Diane) of Charlottesville, VA, and Brian (Susannah) of Dunwoody. Also surviving are the joy of his life, grandchildren William, Anne, Hardy, Kerns, Clara, and Daniel Krehmeyer. Marvin was born on October 5, 1935, in St. Louis, Missouri, the third of four children to Laura Louise Kruse and Frederick William Krehmeyer. He attended Lutheran elementary school followed by Lutheran High School in St. Louis. Marv received a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Saint Louis University. Following graduation, he served in the United States Air Force as a navigator/radar intercept officer flying the F-89J Scorpion in the 319th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, attaining the rank of Captain. Returning to civilian life, Marv joined the accounting firm of Arthur Andersen & Co., becoming an Audit Manager and a Certified Public Accountant. In 1968, he joined Continental Telephone Corporation, where he served in various executive financial positions in St. Louis, followed by Bakersfield, CA, and ultimately Atlanta, before retiring in 1990. A life-long Lutheran, Marv served his local congregations in numerous ways and was elected to the Board of Directors of the Florida-Georgia District of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. In 1998, he was appointed by the Synod President to serve on a Synodical Task Force on Synod Relations. Marv was an avid sports enthusiast. In his early life, he enjoyed fly-fishing in the Missouri Ozarks with his father, and later coached youth sports for many years with his sons. He maintained an allegiance to the St. Louis Cardinals yet became a loyal fan of the Atlanta Braves. He was a long-time member of Dunwoody Country Club and played golf with the club's Senior Men's Golf Association. With Sharon, he enjoyed traveling, and together they experienced many memories and sights throughout the world on trips that spanned across five continents. Other survivors include sister-in-law Jeanne Krehmeyer, and many cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, sisters Marilyn Freivogal (Milton) and Janet Weiler (John), and brother Robert Krehmeyer.
