Bryan K. Krinke, 62

Jul 6, 2015

Blue Earth Bryan Kent Krinke was born March 2, 1952 to Vincent and Romayne (Johnson) Krinke in Blue Earth. He lost his life in a house fire on June 7, 2015. He was baptized and confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church in Elmore. He graduated from Elmore High School. He did various activities such as farming, manufacturing, and traveling.

Bryan’s interests centered around Twins baseball, enjoying nature, and friends and family. He sometimes went to Ft. Meyers, Fla. for the Twins spring training. He enjoyed nature with walks in the woods while hunting mushrooms, and he enjoyed meeting new people and loved being with friends and family. On several occasions he traveled to visit and take in a Twins vs. Royals game. His easy going ways and friendly conversations made him fun to be with. He will be sorely missed!
