Ronald Alan Kruger: 1955 – 2021
Ronald Alan Kruger, 66, of Casper, Wyoming, passed away November 24, 2021, in Casper, Wyoming.
Ronald was known best as “Smurf,” or simply, “Ron.” He was born in Stockton, California, to George and Charlotte Kruger.
Ron moved to Wyoming in late 1982 and lived a full and adventurous life always surrounded by family and friends.
For many years he had his own drywall company where he worked on numerous houses and buildings around Casper, Laramie, and Jackson. Due to a work-related back injury in 1998, he was no longer able to do the job he loved and took great pride in.
Outside of work he took great pleasure in working on cars and bikes, and even co-owned a repair shop with a close friend in Glenrock.
Through his lifetime he had various hobbies that he loved and excelled at such as cooking, motocross racing, softball, bowling, fishing, dancing, darts and pool tournaments. We are pretty certain he was Nascar’s biggest fan, and never missed a Sunday race, as if it were his own religion.
Ron was someone you always had a good time with and had a personality you couldn’t help but love. He had a fun sense of a humor and never failed to make you laugh or smile with one of his sarcastic remarks. He was quick to help anyone he could whether he knew you for years or just met you. He was someone you could always talk to and tried to give you his honest opinion. Ron was a one of a kind who will live on through his family and will be remembered for the mark and memories he left in our hearts.
Ronald is survived by his estranged wife Cassandra Kruger; daughters Jennifer (Phil) and Breanna (Jared); grandchildren Dylan, Jason, Braxton, and Blakely; great grandchildren Kendrick and Delilah; nieces Teresa and Patricia; and many great nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, George Thomas Kruger and Charlotte Francis Kruger; and sisters; Janice Riess and Judith Ellen Allison.
A celebration of life will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday, January 22, 2022, at Shoreliner Bar and Grill, 203 W Birch St, Glenrock, WY 82637.
