Irwin Peter Krutsch - Southport

Irwin Peter (Pete) Krutsch, beloved husband of Betty J. Krutsch, passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 28, 2011 to join hands with his Heavenly Father. His caring family was blessed that they could be with him at this time.

In addition to his wife of 68 years, Pete is survived by his loving daughters, Dianne Sue Boguskie (Ed) of Southport, and Kathy Joyce Rowen (Ron) of Statesville. He also leaves four grandchildren and five great grandchildren, as well as one sister and several nieces and nephews.

Pete served his country in World War II with active duty in the Air Corps, flying photo reconnaissance and intelligence missions out of England. When S.H.A.E.F. Headquarters moved to France, he was assigned there until December 1945, when he returned home. He then joined the Grumman Aerospace Corporation on Long Island, New York where he spent his engineering career working on many different projects, including the F11F series, the Gulfstream, the F14 and the Lunar Module. He continued to work at Grumman until 1977 when he retired and moved to North Carolina for the good life and to enjoy our beautiful coast. Pete was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church in Southport, and a lifelong member of Spartan Masonic Lodge #956 in New York.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am Saturday, September 10, 2011 at Peacock-Newnam & White Funeral and Cremation Service in Southport.
