Not sure what to say?

He was my pediatrician in the 60s. I have many fond memories of this gentle man.

Dr Krueger was the greatest. He was my pediatrician for all of my youth and I will never forget his kind demeanor and his uplifting smile. Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him is better for it. God bless you sir and thanks for being the best.

To all the folks who have recently shared thoughts about my father in this guest book I send a warm thank-you. I just now viewed entries from 2014 to 2016. I had not received any notice of new entries as expected, but a friend let me know. It means so very much to me and my brother to know that Dr. Krueger's patients remember him so fondly.

Dear family, my husband Harold Scott and I, Kathy Scott, have 4 children who presently range in age from 31 to 41.Dr.Kruger was their pediatrician,thank goodness. He was attentive to detail and he watched over them with the greatest of love.I have thought of him often over the years. Our family was very fortunate to have been under his care. I am so glad that he lived to the ripe old age of 87. I know he would have enjoyed knowing that both of our son's became Eagle Scouts as well. I will say...

I know this condolences is 5 years later but I hope that his children may read this ! My mom was Raylene who was his nurse at Harriman Jones along with Mac for many years - both at the office on Cherry and Broadway with dr DeGeorge and when they all moved to the office on Willow ! He was also the pediatrician for myself and 3 siblings ! I have fond memories of the office on Cherry - the lobby with the fireplace , the ramps that were the hallways , the pharmacy with the soda fountain ! Of...

I often think of Dr. Krueger. My Mother and I were talking about him this evening an decided to look him up. We were sad to hear of his passing. He holds a special place in our hearts. He was my Dr. from birth(1956)as well as my two sisters until high school. Then he attended my four children from their births until high school. I was blessed with a Down Syndrome daughter whom he treated with special care. So many wonderful memories of visits with him and his encouraging ways. His...

I will always remember Dr. Krueger's patient and kind ways. He was the only pediatrician that my brother Mark and I knew (we are now 61 and 58). I know he helped our parents deal with our childhood illnesses, scrapes and problems with ease, and put their minds at rest. I will always remember sitting in the examination room, waiting for Dr. Krueger to come in. It was a game to listen for his slow and steady "big feet" steps. We loved the aquarium in the waiting room and the soda...

My warm and heart felt condolences. I'm most thankful for the opportunities we shared with the care of my 3 children.

I thought of your father this evening and decided to look him up on the net and found this commemorative. I remember him well…he was my doctor from birth (early 1950's…along with my 3 siblings) until I moved on to college. I remember his kind office manner and great smile along with the very professional head nurse who seemed to run the place. I once ran into Dr Kruger along with his wife and daughter in Santa Barbara while on my way to Cal Poly. I mention this because it is still a very...
