Arthur “Art” Francis Krause

Arthur “Art” Francis Krause, age 69 of Manistee, passed away on Tuesday June 2, 2020 at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City.

He was born on January 14, 1951 in Manistee, son of the late Harold R. and Jane L. (Greve) Krause. He attended Onekama High School and graduated with the class of 1970.

He enlisted in the United States Army on March 24, 1971 in Detroit, serving during the Vietnam War until his honorable discharge on April 19, 1972.

Art married Cheryl Lynn Ronning on May 13, 1972 in Manistee. She preceded him in death on January 9, 2015. He worked as a truck driver for many years at Century Boat in Manistee. He also was co-owner of PK Computers in Manistee and worked at Munson Healthcare – Manistee Hospital. He was also a volunteer on the Manistee Search and Rescue Dive Team.

Art was a member of the VFW Post 4499 in Manistee. He enjoyed scuba diving, camping, motorcycling, hunting and fishing. Art genuinely enjoyed spending as much time as possible with his granddaughter Alexis. Wherever Alexis was, you would most likely find Art as well.

Art is survived by his daughter, Angelia Krause; granddaughter, Alexis Krause; 2 sisters, Bonnie Bentoske and Jean Marie Gutschke; and brother, Jay (Janet) Krause all of Manistee; 2 brothers-in-law, Larry (Donna) Ronning of Manistee and Red (Donna) Ronning of Bear Lake; sister-in-law, Sylvia Ronning of Baton Rouge, LA; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Cheryl; and daughter, Laura.

Sorry for your loss:
Spent many a time over at Aunt Toot's house with the Ronnig's family. We all enjoyed each other so much in those days as children. . Cheryl was especially a good friend in that we were the same age. Art and I were scuba divers although I never dived with him. He was more advanced in his training. Should have spend more time visiting with him . I did visit Aunt Toot whenever I had the chance. Living in T.C. didn't allow for more time. I am sorry for your loss. I am sure we will see him in the second resurrection. William M. Tessman.
