Kruger, Karl Paul Jr., 52, of Sweetwater, New Jersey passed away peacefully on April 13, 2021. He always said that when it was his time to go, he wanted to die in his home that he deeply loved surrounded by his loving family and beloved pets. God and his dad were watching over him and granted his wish. Karl was a big guy with a big personality and a big heart. He was definitely a gentle giant with his family and the people that he loved. He was passionate about his family, friends, landscaping, basketball, antler hunting, fishing at Alloway Lake, auctions, Amish Mud Sales, and yelling at refs. If he was passionate about something, you always knew it. He was very opinionated about things he cared for deeply and he always expressed himself clearly and loudly, sometimes to the embarrassment of his family, but they loved him for it. He always had a way of making everyone laugh with his funny, infectious personality and interesting perspective on life. Karl grew up in Albion, New Jersey and went to high school at Overbrook Regional High School. He graduated with a mathematics degree from Glassboro State College in 1990. He worked at the FAA Technical Center for thirty-one years. Karl also had a landscaping business, which brought him great joy and was his number one passion. Karl will be greatly missed by his high school sweetheart, Terry Kruger (McGivern), married for thirty years and together for a total of thirty-seven years and his two daughters, Emily (Brett) and Kelsey (Eddie). Whenever he saw a hawk, he would always stop and say that it was his dad watching over him and his family. We now know that he is also soaring above us with his dad and he will continue to watch over us and guide us. A visitation with the family will be held on Tuesday, April 20th from 4:30 until 6:00 and an immediate service following, both at the Beacon Church in Galloway, NJ. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Humane Society of Atlantic County, 1401 Absecon Blvd., Atlantic City, New Jersey 08401. Arrangements have been entrusted to Wimberg Funeral Home, 400 Liverpool Ave, Egg Harbor City 609-965-0357. For condolences, please visit wimbergfuneralhome.com.
