In Memoriam - John Kruska

Posted by cservaes on June 19, 2012 in Alumni A lifelong friend of Ottawa University passed away December 21, 2011. John Kruska ‘68 came to Ottawa University in the fall of 1963 from Bronx, New York. He attended OU for five years, participating in the campus Young Republicans club for three years. “When thinking of John, his benevolent spirit demonstrated in his becoming involved with students’ lives and providing assistance where needed was one of the first things missed about him during our recent commencement,” said Professor of Religion Dr. Rich Menninger. “Such kindness reflected his love of OU and of the people associated with it.” After graduation, Kruska worked for the IRS for his entire career, caring for and living with his mother until her death.
