Posted by Christ the Servant Lutheran Church in Houston, where John served for many years:
“With profound sadness we must report that our beloved John Krueger, dear friend and colleague, loving husband of Pam Krueger and beloved father of Ross and Kristin, breathed his final breath this afternoon (Thursday) in ICU at about 3:15 PM. His heart simply gave out.
This is certainly a sad day for Christ the Servant. Our hearts are broken. John offered extraordinary and devoted service to this congregation, working closely with Pastor Jim for these past 16 years. Everything he accomplished with his outstanding gifts was for the glory of God, and never his own ego. All of us had hoped against hope that he might fully recover and return to us from his long hospital stay.
Of course, our thoughts and prayers are with his family as they attempt to deal with this loss. All of your prayers are most certainly appreciated. No arrangements have yet been made, but we will communicate that information as soon as it becomes available. We look forward to celebrating and together thanking God for the gifted and graced life of this profoundly faithful servant of God.”
