Obituary for George J. Kroeck

George J. Kroeck, Born into Eternal Life on Thursday, Sept. 19, 2019. George’s spirit left his body to be with God and his dearly departed family and friends. He was surrounded by love, prayer, song, family and kind medical staff. For more than 30 years he worked at Cook County jail as a paramedic/EMT and was a member of the Cook County Sheriff’s Department. He was a decorated Army Veteran, serving during Vietnam, and was honorably discharged. He was married for 40 years. He loved his family, friends and music, especially the Ides of March and Peter, Paul & Mary. In his younger years, he was a drummer and enjoyed acting in plays. He was also a gifted photographer and appreciated opportunities to share that skill with friends and family. George will be remembered for his sense of humor and his giving nature, which ultimately led him to become an organ donor and share the gift of life even in his passing. He is survived by his wife, children, and grandchild. Visitation Sunday 3-8pm. Funeral Monday 10:15am from Curley Funeral Home (Heeney-Laughlin Directors), 6116 W. 111th St., Chicago Ridge, IL 60415. to St. Gerald Church, 93rd St. & Central Ave., Oak Lawn, IL 60453 for Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00am. Interment Queen of Heaven Cemetery, Hillside, IL.
