My deepest symphathy to Joyce, Rodney and all the family of Jerry Krueger. I met Jerry the first day I started working at Spartan Chemical in 1964. I was young...this was my first job and I was nervous and scared. Jerry was extremely friendly, kind and welcoming to me. He made me feel a part of the Spartan team right from the get go. I have always remembered and appreciated that. God bless Jerry and his family as they journey through this difficult transition.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. It is never easy to lose a parent. I'll never forget the time your dad's motorcycle got away from him and he took a chunk out of the corner of your garage. I still remember when your dad took Scott and I to a Tiger game. And thanks to your dad I was able to work at Spartan Chemical for a short time. Lots of great memories.

Sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. I worked with Jerry at Spartan Chemical on Westwood Ave. from 1966 to 1971 excluding two years I was in the US Army. Jerry had a vast knowledge of car and MC engines that impressed us all. I still remember the nicknames he gave some of us workers at Spartan. May he rest in peace.
