I just read David's obituary and felt the loss of another "larger than life person" from my childhood. I remember visiting his east side shop with my Dad. He was meticulous about his craft... he was soooo cool! The large dog... not so cool. My prayers are with him for a safe passage.

Dave & I met in 5th Grade. We did a lot of things together. Some we couldn't talk about for years until the statute of limitations ran out. Ha Ha! We had fun. Will miss him.

My sympathy to the family. I didn't know Kraut, but wish I had. My older brother, Bill, and I, were both fellow Marines with his father, during the Korean conflict, in 1950. He was a very colorful man, as I remember, and had an exciting career. I would have wanted him on my side in a fight.
Enjoy the memories of your family together.

It will be sad to ride the road alone instead of side by side-but too all there comes a time when the roads of life must divide. Kraut gave us many years of happiness now comes the sorrow and the tears but Dave left us with beautiful memories that we will treasure for the rest of our years. Forever in the wind brother Dave
