David R. Krebs, age 84 of Lowell, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Thursday, February 13, 2020. He is survived by the love of his life, his wife of 61 years, Susanne (Blanksma) Krebs. David was born in Alto, MI on March 11, 1935 to the late John and Mary (Wingeier) Krebs. He was preceded in death by his siblings Claire (Marian) Krebs, George (Mary) Krebs, Harold (Gladys) Krebs and Irma (Frank) Porter. David is also survived by his darling daughters Cheryl(Terry) Metternick, Beth(Mike) Wisner and Denise(Vern) Nise; grandchildren, Janelle (Chris) Zachcow, Amanda Archambault, Ben (Whitney) Wisner, Ashley (Jim) Collins, Andrew Metternick, Johnathan Nise and Madison Nise; great grandchildren, Alexis, Logan, Evelyn, Mitchell, Ansley, Sadie, Eli, Breckon, Boone and Porter. David was a proud veteran of the U.S. Army 11th Armored Cavalry. He was stationed in Germany, where he and Sue made lifelong friends whom we consider family.  As a boy he was raised on the family farm. He then transitioned into being a skilled builder after returning home from the service. He had a passion for his career and enjoyed working until September of 2019. David was a man of faith. His life of servitude was evident to all the lives he impacted, which was many. He was a caring man with a huge heart which was so apparent in the way he cared for Sue and his family. He will be missed by all who knew him. The family will meet with friends and relatives for visitation Saturday February 15th from 2-4 pm and 6-8 pm at Roth Gerst Chapel, 305 N Hudson, Lowell, Michigan. Funeral services will be 4 pm Sunday February 16th, with visitation one-hour prior at Roth Gerst Chapel. Rev. David Wheeler will be officiating. Memorial contributions can be made to Schneider Manor, 725 Bowes St SE, Lowell, Michigan.
