Arthur Charles Krause Jr

Arthur Charles Krause, Jr., 77, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend, passed away August 18, 2002, after suffering a severe stroke. Art was born May 27, 1925, to Arthur Charles Krause, Sr. and Alice Carol Krause in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Shortly after he was born, they moved to Pasadena, California where they lived for many years. He graduated from South Pasadena/San Marino high school and he hardly ever missed a high school reunion. He served his country in the Army Air Corps from 1943-1945. While he was thankful he did not have to serve overseas during World War II, he was eternally grateful to those who did. He often spoke about the sacrifice others had made during the conflict to the benefit of the United States.

After the service, Art earned a bachelors degree from Pomona College in 1948 and a MBA from Stanford University in 1950. He also served as a professor and the acting Dean of the School of Business Administration at John F, Kennedy University. He worked for many years as a Regional sales manager in the Petroleum Equipment industry for Dres-ser Industries, Shields Harper, and Richfield Oil.

In December 1958, he married Patricia Snow. They raised two loving children, Karyn and Todd. The Krause family lived in Montclair and Orinda, California, Salisbury, Maryland, and Newport Beach, California before locating to Salt Lake City. Upon Art's retirement, Art and Pat moved to Park City, Utah.

Art loved living in Park City. He skied every day at Park City Mountain Resort and was a nationally ranked skier for his age group. He was an avid outdoorsman, geologist, and sports enthusiast. He participated in the 26.2 mile Jimmy Fund Walk in Boston, Massachusetts for many years and outperformed people half his age. Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Art was touched by his honesty and integrity. His friends were a very important part of his life and he kept in touch with almost everyone from kindergarten onward up until the last days of his life. He deeply loved his family and friends and they felt the same way about him.

Art is survived by his loving wife, Patricia; daughter, Karyn Krause-Elmslie; son, Todd Krause, and his wife, Jani; grandchildren, Ian, Courtney and one on the way.
