Obituary

Marty Dean Krause, 59, of Denver, formerly of Windsor, passed away at his home on March 24, 2019. He was born May 12, 1959 in Ogden, UT to Larry and Darlene (Kerbel) Kraus.

Marty worked for Kodak from 1979-2003 and then relocated to Denver where he enjoyed the big city and all it had to offer.

He loved gardening, especially flowers, and was a three-time Grand Champion winner at the Weld County Fair where he participated from 1987-2003. His favorites were dinner plate dahlias and stargazer lilies.
Marty was an avid runner, participating in marathons, attending Elton John concerts (attending his last concert in February 2019), watching the Denver Broncos and decorating his home for the seasons, especially lighting up his house at Christmas. He also loved watching the Golden Girls and Star Trek. His fondest memory was getting the chance to see William Shatner at an event in Denver.

Marty was a faithful member and supporter of Faith United Church of Christ in Windsor. He was not only a member, but also a server of the church; he wore many hats during his time there. Some of the positions held were a Deacon, Usher, Sunday school teacher and helped with cleaning.

Survivors include his daughters; Jamie (Chris) Miller of Windsor and Casey (Kevin) Sturch of Eaton, grandchildren; Trystan & Jordynne Miller, Micheala Purdy, Myles Baker, Conner and Bailey Sturch, sister; Shauna Stewart and brother, Kelly Kraus as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Monty.

Life Celebration Services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, April 5, 2019 at Faith UCC, Windsor with a luncheon to follow. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to “Faith UCC” or his family in care of Adamson,

Marty and I have been friends for over 25 years. One of the things that brought us together was our love for running. Over the years he and I ran dozens of races together. Once he even organized a race called "Run for Faith" through his church in Windsor with some of the proceeds going to the church. I remember evenings and weekends that he spent cleaning and working at the church he loved so much. Marty was a man of faith and it showed in his actions and his interactions with friends and family. He was always thinking of others. He was one of the most unselfish people I've ever known. He and I lived together for a brief period during the time he was going through a divorce. It was a difficult time but no matter what was going on even at the worst of times Marty was always upbeat and positive. Living together tested our friendship but I'm so glad it survived because I can honestly say that he's one of the best friends I've ever had and maybe ever will have. The last time we got together was early January. It was tradition for us to wait until the holiday rush was over before we got together to exchange gifts and celebrate. I had him over for something to eat and we had a glass of wine and watched a little TV. Nothing fancy just spending time together enjoying each others company and of course laughing. To know Marty was to know his laugh, it was infectious. It had been a few weeks since we last spoke. I know he was struggling a little with a job change and I wanted to give him space. His schedule and mine didn't work well for talking during the week so we'd get caught up on the weekends. We could talk about everything from politics to world events to the Broncos. I'm sure we solved a number of problems plaguing the country during our talks. I'm going to miss those talks. I wish I would have called him sooner. God bless you Marty. I miss and love you. Forever your friend...Jeff

Marty Krause is a friend of mine. We understood each other, shared our brightest joys and darkest secrets, and remained friends regardless. He and I met in Eaton Junior High, what they call middle school now. We rode the same bus, and became fast friends in the decade of the 70’s. We tried to be roommates when we were 17, but that only lasted a short time. Our lives took different paths as lives tend to do, but one day, somewhere in our late 20’s, we reconnected, and have remained unabashed confidants ever since.

Despite, and even during, the trials of life Marty always had a high energy upbeat personality and I loved him for it. We had the most animated conversations I have ever shared with any other person I know. Whether we agreed or not did not matter. We had a fantastic time supporting and tearing down each other’s claims; vociferously and with unhindered color. I cannot remember a single time we ever departed in anger. Though our lives kept us apart, we were always together philosophically. Many months could pass till one would phone the other and it was like no time at all had intervened between calls. When we were together there was never an awkward anything. We had to rely on ancient methods of communicating because Marty refused to become beholden to social media or even arcane technology like email. He actually knew what paper, pens, envelopes, and stamps were used for. Good for him!

Marty was reliable and dependable, and 100% good for his word. There are not many left who that can be said of. We last spoke just a few weeks ago, and had made tentative plans (All our plans were tentative till they actually happened, and oft times even imaginary.) to spend a couple days together “soon”; clearly, too tentative, and not soon enough.

Of course I wish I had been more present in his life these last years, but we all say that about everyone when it is too late to possibly make amends. It is not any less true, just equally true about us all.

Marty had more good in him than most do, and I am proud to call him a friend of mine. I miss him, so I will remember him to myself and others as often as I am able. He cannot be gone if he is not forgotten.


A friend of Marty’s,

Mark
