He was known for his outlandish sense of humor. A lover of hiking in the mountains and mountain biking, he also was passionate about music and his cats.

He is also survived by his grandmother, Florence Krueger; his special uncle, Rich Krueger; his loving aunt, Vickie (Krueger) Simon; his aunts and uncles, George and Corrine Herrmann and Jack and Mary Jo Kocourek; and many other family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Joseph Krueger; his uncle, Jim Krueger; and his grandparents, Lucille and Eldred Herrmann.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family appreciates memorials to the Albuquerque Humane Society or the American Cancer Society.
