In loving memory of

Galen Joseph Kremer
March 24, 1944 - August 27, 2019

Today, August 27, 2019, an Angel driving an 18-Wheeler came and took our beloved Galen,75, of Maquoketa, Iowa, to Heaven. He left behind his wife Susan "Sue" of 46 years; daughter Heidi of 44 years. Galen will stay in our hearts forever and be sadly missed by whom all he knew and all who knew Galen Kremer.

Family and friends may gather for a graveside service and burial with military rites at 10 A.M., Saturday, September 7, 2019 at Sacred Heart Cemetery, Maquoketa, Iowa. There is no visitation. Cremation has taken place.

Heidi and Susan would like to thank family, friends and Hospice of Jackson County for the last 10 days of Galen's life.

"Galen was a good friend. We first met at Andrew Community School in the sixth grade with classes in the basement of the Presbyterian Church in 1956. Mrs. Weuste as the teacher. Good memories of a good friend. I'll miss you buddy."
