Dan Kruger
June 1, 1957 – May 23, 2016

Dan Kruger was born in Dallas, Texas on June 1, 1957 to Charles Albert Kruger and Barbara Ann (Galbraith) Kruger, and passed away at his home May 23, 2016 at age 58. Dan is survived by his wife Marisa Atria Kruger, sons Alex Kruger and his wife Aly and Matt Kruger; his mother Bobbie Kelley, father Charlie Kruger and his wife Marilou; siblings, David Kruger and his wife Jaquidon, Linda Kelly and her husband Butch, Karen Archer, Pam Gladden and her husband Gerald, Tommy Parker, Vivia Kelly and her husband Garry, Timmy Parker and his wife Kendra, Leslie Thomson and her husband Scott, Jennifer Heuermann and her husband Dennis, Allison Malandrucolo and her husband Frank, and Angie Henson and her husband Paul. He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Nancy Atria and brother-in-law Joe Atria and his wife Sue.

He was a serial entrepreneur, a software architect and computer mastermind. He has multiple patents and has started 5 companies, the latest of which is called Absio which is the result of constant pondering. He has been concerned about internet privacy since the internet began.

Dan loved movies that were inspiring. He enjoyed camping by rivers, loved to be fishing on large bodies of water, was a private pilot, and loved all things flying, he loved canyons and driving trips on hair raising jeep roads on mountain passes. He was a constant student of history, especially in the founding of our nation and a lover of liberty. He was also a problem-solver. He had a way of seeing into the nugget of a problem and seeing a set of possible solution. He spoke fluent computer and fluent human. He was a spiritual man and he listened to sermons to learn and to relax so he could sleep and quiet his mind.

He will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him.

Proverbs 4:23-27
Above all else, guard your heart for everything you do flows from it.
Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you.
Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.

Jeremiah 9:23-24a
This is what the LORD says: Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth.

Revelation 21:4-5
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death
or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.
He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!"

"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."
~ William Shakespeare, Macbeth
