LeRoy John Krejci

January 27, 1949 — June 8, 2023


LeRoy "Lee" John Krejci, 74, passed away unexpectedly at home on Thursday, June 8, 2023.


Lee was born on January 27, 1949, in Neillsville, WI, to Rex and Eunice (Grosnick) Krejci. On November 1, 1968, Lee married Rae Ann Moen in Wisconsin Rapids.


As a boy, Lee worked at the local co-op with his brother. He was inducted into the Army on May 8, 1969. He was a certified welder and went on to drive semitrucks.


Lee enjoyed fishing, watching sports, and traveling in his free time. During summers, he eagerly embarked on camping trips with his wife and daughters. He also loved collecting coins, tending to his garden, and grilling out-he made the best steaks.


As a grandpa, Lee was very supportive of his grandchildren. He attended their many sporting events and taught them how to fish. Each child also looked forward to receiving special coins every visit.


In addition to his wife Rae Ann, Lee is survived by daughters Lisa (Kevin) Kujawa and Kristy Durkes; four grandchildren: Jessica (Ben) Hermes, Taylor Kujawa, Kayden Lane, and Jaxsen Durkes; two great-grandchildren: Skylar Thompson and Asher Hermes; siblings: Devere Krejci, Bonnie (Arne) Eisentraut, and Pat (Ken) Christie; and many nieces and nephews.


He was preceded in death by his parents; his parents-in-law, Raymond and Virginia Moen; and his loyal, rock-eating dog, Joseph Andrew.


Lee's family will miss him dearly. His witty sense of humor and warm-hearted demeanor will not be forgotten. Friends wishing to honor Lee's memory may make a donation to the American Legion or Humane Society of Marathon County.
