Todd Alan Krueger, 57, of Milwaukie, Oregon, passed away unexpectedly on February 17, 2020.
Todd was born July 3, 1962 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and adopted by Robert and Grace (Pederson) Krueger in September of 1962. He graduated from Rex Putnam High School in Milwaukie, Oregon in 1981. He married Helen Louise Carey in September of 1986 and they spent 23 years together raising their two daughters, Morgan and Maria Krueger. Todd adored his children and through storytelling he instilled the joy of imagination into their young lives. He continued this tradition with his granddaughter, Kennedy, telling incredible make-believe stories with her as the main character.
Todd played high school football, baseball and participated in wrestling where his love of watching local wrestling on TV was a Saturday night must-have. He was also a follower of the WWE, watching in the early days before it was popular to be a wresting fan. He was a faithful Green Bay Packers fan and in 2007, he was able to live out a life-long dream and visit Lambeau Field where he attended a preseason game and had seats at the 50-yard-line with his father and cousin. Todd always said that the experience of walking on Lambeau Field changed his life. Todd owned a small janitorial company, Krueger Janitorial, for 28 years until his MS made it impossible for him to personally manage his accounts. He took great pride in providing pristine, personal cleaning services for his clients. Before Todd’s illness progressed, he was always there to help relatives and friends with household projects or anything else people needed him for.
Todd is survived by his two daughters, Morgan Eugenia Krueger and Maria Grace Krueger; granddaughter, Kennedy Louise Andrews; brothers, Jack and Tony Krueger; sister, Sherri (Krueger) Walling; as well as many loving nieces, nephews and extended family. He is preceded in death by his son, Thomas Robert Krueger; and his parents, Robert and Grace Krueger. Todd was a loving, playful father, grandfather and friend to everyone.
