Michael Krull was a kind, loving and supportive man who had a great sense of humor and enjoyed working in the family business, said Dawn Krull, his wife of 40 years.
“He loved his granddaughter and loved playing with her,” she said. “Family was one of his many joys in life.”
Michael Krull, 62, of Hobart, died Sept. 18. He was co-owner of Krull & Sons Surveying. He was a member of the Hobart Phi Delts and had been a member of the National Guard.
He was a 1969 Hobart High School graduate.
He loved to golf and had a group of friends he golfed with every Wednesday.
“They always went. If there was rain or snow, they would find something else to do,” she said. “They would take trips to Florida and to Michigan. They had a good time together.”
Krull enjoyed sitting back and listening to the goings-on around him, but would always interject something funny into the conversation, his wife said.
“He could be the practical joker,” she said. “He was a very loyal person and would do anything for you.”
Mark Haller was a long-time friend and golfing partner.
“He was very quick-witted,” Haller said of Krull. “He was the go-to guy. He was an integral part of our group.”
He also loved to travel and had been everywhere from California and Arizona to Mexico. He also loved to go to the family cabin near Manistee, Mich., where he kept a boat.
Dawn Krull said she met her husband in high school and they worked together at the Art Theater in downtown Hobart.
“He was my best friend and the love of my life,” she said.
