REV. TODD STEPHEN KRUEGER
Oct. 17, 1964-Oct. 16., 2010
The Rev. Todd Stephen Krueger, 45, went to be with Jesus Saturday, Oct. 16, 2010, at Duke University Medical Center after a brief but courageous battle with leukemia.
Todd was born in Fond du Lac, Wisc., Oct. 17, 1964, to Stephen James Krueger and Mary Jean Kintzler Krueger of Palmyra, Va.
He had served as a pastor in the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church for more than 21 years. Todd served congregations in Bridgeton, Roanoke Rapids, Burlington and Zebulon and was currently serving as pastor of New Hope United Methodist Church in Goldsboro.
He was a graduate of North Stafford High School. Todd was also a graduate of Methodist College in Fayetteville, and received his Masters of Divinity from Duke University.
Todd was a man of incredible faith in God, hope for the world and love for others. He is remembered as a generous, caring, compassionate man, and loyal friend to so many. Even during his illness, he never gave up or let go of his firm belief in the power of prayer. Todd's determination to let it be God's will was an inspiration to all who knew him.
He was also a man of many talents from cycling, passionate about backpacking and camping, to woodworking. Todd will also be remembered for his great cooking skills.
Second only to God was Todd's love for his family. He was the best daddy and husband, who will be truly missed.
A service to celebrate the life of the Rev. Todd Krueger will be held Wednesday at 7 p.m. at New Hope United Methodist Church, with the Rev. Chuck Cook and Dr. Dennis Draper officiating.
The family will receive friends Tuesday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home in Goldsboro.
In addition to his parents, Todd is survived by his wife of 17 years, Martha White Krueger; his children, Hannah Elaine Krueger and Isaac Todd Krueger; his sisters, Holly Ann Stewart and husband, Alan, and Patricia Lynn White; and several nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be directed to the family by giving to New Hope United Methodist Church, 200 E. New Hope Road, Goldsboro, N.C., 27534.
