KROPP, Leonard Frederick
It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of our father Leonard Frederick Kropp on March 30, 2014, a mere 55 days after the loss of his wife (our mother) Lydia in early February. Leonard passed away peacefully at the Grey Nuns Hospital after a four year battle with kidney failure and numerous other ailments. Born on February 27, 1923, the 91 plus years he lived was a period of incredible change in history.
He leaves behind four sons Ken (Ardy), Bernie (Brenda), Randy, and Myron; daughter-in-law Dawne; eleven grandchildren; and twelve great- grandchildren. He was predeceased by his son Larry in August 2013, his parents, sister Alma, brother Robert, and daughter- in-law Debbie.
The family would like to express our deepest gratitude to Dr. Bradley and his team at the Grey Nuns Renal Unit for 4 years of tremendous care he received there, as well as to the nursing staff on Stn. 54 at the Grey Nuns during his brief stay there. A special thank you to his wonderful home care provider Jane who for her stay with him was there 24 hours/7 days a week. She was a pillar and became his best friend.
A Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. at Christ Lutheran Church, 9909-90 Street, Fort Saskatchewan with Interment to follow.
If desired, a donation to Christ Lutheran Church building fund or the Kidney Foundation would be appreciated. Gord and Cindy Kadatz managing directors.

To the Kropp family

We were so very sorry to hear of your dad's passing so soon after your mom. We have many fond memories of them from the farm days and curling days. They both lived a full life and that you can be very thankful for. They made many friends over the years and will be remembered and missed by all.

We had heard of Leonard's departure for Heaven but it was still difficult to see his obituary this morning. We last spoke with him at Carl's funeral, in January. Then, as usual, his thoughts & deep concerns were for his Lydia. They were such pillars of the church; always caring about the welfare of others & friends to all. Your family has suffered so much loss in the past 8 months! For your parents, release from their frail, suffering bodies has come. Together again, as they wished--with the Father they loved and served for so long. As we are still in Yuma, AZ, we will not be able to join you for Leonard's funeral but our thoughts & prayers are there. God Bless all of you.
