Steven Krook

New Ipswich NH — Steven Edward Krook, 71, of New Ipswich, New Hampshire, was called home to be with his Lord while surrounded by his 8 children and bride of 52 years Annie, on September 9, 2021.

He was born on June 7, 1950, in Peterborough, NH, the son of the late Paul and Sylvia (Somero) Krook. He graduated from Mascenic High School in 1969. On June 22, 1969, he married Annie Irene Seppala. Together they raised 8 children on Fox Farm Road in New Ipswich. He started his first business at the age of 19 and continued to launch a successful string of companies. He started in concrete foundations and went on to wear many hats: homebuilder, auctioneer, developer, coffee roaster, apartment owner, investor, and he established subsidized and assisted living facilities throughout New England.

Steven spent his winters in Lantana, Florida and traveled the globe with his Bride whenever the opportunity came. Incredible benevolence and stewardship marked every day of his life. He embodied Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-control, much like his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Steven is survived by: his wife Annie (Seppala) Krook, his children, Darci (Curt) Sauvola, Carmela (Kenyon) Salo, Alicia (Reade) Salo, Andrew (Dianna) Krook, Marcella (Eric) Stevens, Melissa (Brent) Warnke, Dustin (Michelle) Krook, Colton Krook. 27 Grandchildren, 3 Great Grandchildren, 2 on the way, and many more to come. His brothers, Dennis (Mary) Krook, Eric (Patsie) Krook, Tim (Joy) Krook, Peter (Beth) Krook, and many relatives and friends.

Our sad hearts send love and hugs with deepest sympathy. You and Steve brought so much joy to our lives though we weren´t with you often. I will always remember his call to me asking if I had German Shepherd puppies for sale. What a precious man loved by us. His obituary is so true. God Bless all of you
