Charles Frederick Krull, age 87, of Three Rivers, MI passed away peacefully on May 3, 2020 at Ascension Borgess in Kalamazoo, MI. He was born on May 26, 1932 in Three Rivers, the son of Raymond and Florence (Wenzel) Krull.

Charles proudly served his country during the Korean War as an Aviation Electrician in the United States Navy for four years. His experience during this time would influence his future career as a union electrician belonging to the IBEW Local 131 in Kalamazoo. He also was an active member of the Three Rivers Eagles, Elks, and The Knights of Columbus. He loved the Three Rivers Catholic Church of Immaculate Conception and continued to take mass communion even as his health failed him.

Charles loved to fish and will be remembered by many for the time he spent helping others without complaint.

He is preceded in his passing by his parents and his brother: Raymond (Mary Lou) Krull Jr.

Left to cherish his loving memory are his siblings: John (Mary) Krull and Mary (Ben) Gallo; and many nieces and nephews.

In accordance with Charles’ wishes a private graveside service will be held at Riverside Cemetery of Three Rivers with Father Mathias officiating.

Memorials made in Charles’ memory may be directed to The Immaculate Conception Catholic School. Envelopes are available at Hohner Funeral Home in care of arrangements. Online condolences may be left at
