Obituary for Al Paul Kruse

Al Paul Kruse, age 84, was born on June 1, 1935, in Garvin, MN. He was the only child of Walter and Ada (Haney) Kruse. Al married Shirley Meinders on July 30, 1955, in Ellsworth, MN. They just celebrated their 64th anniversary. Al worked as Pressman for the Worthington Daily Globe for 22 years. He then worked for five years for Worthington Mechanical and then Armors/Swift until his retirement in 1997.
Al had so many hobbies including a 27’ motor home, a 3-wheel trike, and a one seat airplane. He loved welding all metal work. His greatest accomplishment would be their A-Frame house, which it took the family 1 ½ years to build. His biggest challenge in life was his eight children. LOL. Al passed away on Tuesday, August 13, 2019, surrounded by his family, at Sanford Worthington Medical Center in Worthington, MN.
Al is survived by his wife, Shirley; children, Rick Kruse along with his children, John, Sara, and Travis, Steve (Joan) Kruse along with their child, Stacy; Teresa Luing along with her children, Derrick, Brittany, and Brooke, Jami Kruse, Jess Kruse and his child, Slade, Becky Kruse, and Kirk Kruse and his child, Summer; seven great grandchildren, Jasmine, Samantha, Kyle, Drake, Mersaydes, Taylor, and Auron, and one great great grandchild, Jesse. He was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Ada; a son, Frank Kruse, and a great grandson, Blake Benz.
Visitation will be held on Friday, August 16, 2019, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the Benson Funeral Home in Worthington.
No church services will be held due to Al and God having their own plan.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred.
Benson Funeral Home in Worthington is in charge of the arrangements.
