- Marriage: He was married on May 14, 1958 in Most Precious Blood Church, New London, Wisconsin.
- Death: He died on March 6, 2013, at age 74, in Necedah, Juneau Co, Wisconsin.
- Note: Anthony "Tony" H. Kraus, 74, of Necedah, Wisconsin; loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and advocate of the unborn was called into the arms of our loving Lord surrounded by his immediate family on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, at his home.
He was born on December 1, 1938, to John and Arbella (Young) Kraus. Anthony married Judy Ann Roberts on May 14, 1958 at the Most Precious Blood Catholic Church in New London, Wisconsin. Tony proudly served his country in the National Guard from 1958 through 1962.
He spent his working years at the Neenah Foundry Company and retired after 40 years of dedicated employment in 1998. He had a love for the outdoors, especially for gardening, bird watching, fishing, and deer hunting. He had three donkey companions, Charlie, Alex and Pokey, which he cared for until he became too ill.
Anthony had a great sense of humor, often sharing stories and pranks with his children and grandchildren. He was a devoted member of the Necedah Shrine and worked many hours on the House of Prayer. Anthony has a strong belief that all life is precious, born or unborn. He was the founder of "Crusaders for Life" and traveled thousands of miles with many young men, women and others to promote life. He was a superhero to his children, and will be deeply missed by many.
As one of his grandchildren wrote: This evening the Lord Almighty welcomed my grandfather Anthony Kraus into his kingdom with open arms. During his final hours the family sat around him and comforted him with the love that a loving grandfather has earned over the course of many years. We all held his hand and told him how much he meant to us and the lessons he taught us. There is no other that I met who fought to be the voice for all the little ones who had no voice and never had the chance to take a breath on their own! We may mourn for a time now that he is gone, but now we will celebrate his life, as he lived with a whole heart. You could hear his chuckle from a mile away!
He is survived by his loving wife Judy of 55 years; his daughter, Julie (Greg) Robinson, of Neenah and their children, Michael (Melinda) Robinson, Matthew (Jenna) Robinson, Christopher Robinson, and Joshua (fiancee, Rachel) Robinson; his daughter, Christine (Edward) Gilmore of Neenah and their children, Sarah (Eric) Turner, Jonathon Gilmore, and Melissa Gilmore; his daughter, Lauri (David) Dausey of Neenah and their children, Katie (Greg) Wagner, and Jennifer Dausey; his son, Robert (Michele) Kraus of Necedah and their children, Nicole (Damian) Nowland, Edward (Erin) Bunch, and Shawn (Allison) Nollenberg; his daughter Sandra (David) Erickson of Neenah and their children, Amanda Shilobrit, Travis Shilobrit, and Josh Erickson; his daughter, Leann (Scott) Kaczmarek of Neenah and their children, Samantha Kaczmarek, and Grace Ann Kaczmarek; along with 12 great-grandchildren. He is further survived by his sisters, Joyce Kelley of Appleton WI; Sandra Kavanaugh of Kaukauna WI; a brother, Lester (Darlene) Seggelink of Little Chute; as well as many other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Arbella, and stepfather, Lester Seggelink, along with his brothers, Tom Seggelink and Milton Kraus, and one sister, Francis Wochinski.
"Daddy, you have always been our superhero. You will be greatly missed. We love you forever. Your Children."
