Obituary

ALFONS KRZEMECKI age 93 of Farwell, formerly of Memphis, MI. went to be with Jesus on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 on his oldest daughter's birthday. He had been in the Woodland Hospice Care Facility in Mount Pleasant, MI. a short time. Mr. Krzemecki was born December 4, 1921 in Detroit to the late Francis and Agnieski (Dziek) Krzemecki. He married Mary Jane Rutkofske in St. Philip Neri Catholic Church in Columbus Township on September 4, 1948. Al was a proud veteran of the United States Navy serving during World War II aboard the USS Gambier Bay, USS Intrepid and USS Hendersen. He retired as a welder from U.S Army Automotive Tank Command in Warren in 1976 after thirty-one years service. He was a member of Holy Family Parish in Memphis, the VFW Post in New Baltimore and was an avid golfer. He was a patient teacher, teaching how to follow through on a golf swing to having good work ethics. He taught his children how to care for their cars and their homes and encouraged us all to try things even if we failed the first time, always saying, "that's how you learn." He prided himself in being Mister-Fix-It, fixing everything but a broken heart his wife would say. Deep down we knew he could help fix that too. Even though Al had no formal education, he was educated beyond his years with his life experiences, learning the value of hard work, saving money, and providing for his family day in and day out. He loved his wife, Janie, and you could see it in his eyes when they danced or when they were together on day to day events. He was a loving father and grandpa, caring and helpful, and he adored his children, grandchildren, his great-grandson along with his nieces and nephews. He had a simple, strong faith in the Lord and no one could take that away from him. He had been tested and tried from the loss of his dad at an early age supporting his mother through working at the CCC camps with his twin, Eddie, to joining the Navy and after the attack on his ship, jumping in shark infested waters, remaining there for three days. His heart was broken with the loss of his infant son, Jimmy and he grieved so when he lost his twin brother a few years ago. He remained strong and always said, "It's gonna be alright!". He is survived by his wife Mary Jane, children; Linda (Tim) Barnes of Horton, Tom (Carol) Krzemecki of Harrison, Mary Ellen (Dirk) Brines of Farwell and CarolAnn (Dave) Kraus of Fort Gratiot, sister-in-law, Donna Krzemecki of Clinton Township, grandchildren Sarah (Mike) Pelletier, Karen Krzemecki, Vaughn (Maggie) Brines, Margo Brines, Devin Brines and Jessica Burrows, step-grandchildren; Rachael and Parker Barnes and his great-grandson Andrew Pelletier. He was preceded in death by his infant son, Jimmy Krzemecki, his twin brother, Edward Krzemecki and his sister Mary (the late Alfred) Klebba.
