Shortly after adopting Brent, Marge and Mel gave Brent both a brother, Kurt Kruger, and a sister, Kathy Kruger. He had a very happy childhood and loved growing up in Grand Rapids. Brent was thrilled when he was able to locate his biological family in 2006, only to discover that he had an additional seven sisters and one more brother.

I also grew up with Brent In Grand Rapids, Minnesota. He owned the local pizza shop and was the Ski School Director at Sugar Hills. I worked for him as an Instructor and we lived together with a few other friends by the shores of Sugar Lake. He had an engaging personality and an infectious laugh and was generous to a fault. I had to leave this environment in 1967 because of the war in Viet Nam. When I returned a number of years later, I was told that Brent was the mayor of Georgetown, Colorado; which I could totally believe. I always meant to reconnect but never had the opportunity. It was a pleasure knowing him.

I grew up with Brent in Grand Rapids Minn. and can say that "Louie" was well liked by everybody in town and was a ton of fun with a great sense of humor. I skied with him in G.R. and out west and he was beautiful to watch and still one of the best I ever have seen (I was terrible and every mogul was
Mt. Everest). The fun afterwards was as good as it gets and even though I had not seen Brent in years I have thought about him often and remember the Great Times. My sincere condolences.

I'm truly sorry to hear of Mr. Kruger's passing. I would like to offer my sincere condolences to his wife and family. Jeremiah 29:11, 12 assures us God is thinking thoughts of peace towards us, to give us a future and a hope. And that if we come and pray to Him, He will listen to us. In the days to come may you find comfort in this hope.
