Joseph Alan Krager

February 17, 1958 — March 4, 2019

Joseph Alan Krager, age 61, of LeRaysville, PA, passed away on Monday, March 4, 2019, at his home, with his loving family and friends at his side.


          Joe was born in Binghamton, NY, a son of Gladys Marie Glover Krager and the late Kenneth Irving Krager. He graduated from Vestal Center High School, a member of the Class of 1975.


He worked many years for Tony Bennett & Son Flagstone.


          Dad or Papa Joe as many called him was a very simple man. He enjoyed driving rock truck at the quarry and drinking beer. When he wasn’t working you could find him in his “special spot” on the corner of the quarry chatting with loved ones or simply talking in a beautiful sunset.

God saw you getting tired,

And a cure was not to be.

So He put His arms around you

and whispered "Come to Me."

With tearful eyes we watched you, 

and saw you pass away.

Although we loved you dearly,

We could not make you stay.

Your golden heart stopped beating,

Your hard working hands to rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us,

He only takes the best.
