Obituary of David L. Kroft, Sr.
David L. Kroft, Sr., age 82, from Marion, went to be with the Lord at 2:10 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3, 2019, at Colonial Oaks Health Care Center in Marion. A lifelong resident of Marion, David was born on August 18, 1936, to Clair W. and Donna Belle (Dobson) Kroft. He was raised by his step-parents, James and Donna O’Banion.
On May 10, 1975, he married Janet Downam, and they shared nearly 34 years together before she passed away on February 23, 2009. David retired from Foster-Forbes, where he was a glass maker.
Most significantly in David’s life was his relationship with the Lord. He always invested in others and found great joy in helping people. He was a member of Church of the Brethren, where he was involved in several ministries within the church. David also loved playing the organ, as well as spending time with his family. They will remember him for not only how much of a jokester he was but also for his love for others.
He is survived by five children: David (Starla McCulloch) Kroft, Jr., Marion; Elaine Couchman, Peru; Mark Steven (Tammy) Kroft, Marion; Tina (Steve) Robinson, Hot Springs, AR; and LeeAnne (Gene) Siglin, Kennard; brothers: Mike (Joyce) O’Banion, Marion; and Roger O’Banion, Marion; sisters: Marilyn O’Banion, Marion; Carolyn Bosworth, Marion; and Judy Norris, Marion; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
In addition to his parents and step-parents, he was preceded in death by three sons: Randy Kroft, Allen Kroft, and Kelly Kroft; and daughter, Gina Marie Stratton.
The family will receive visitors from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with David’s funeral service beginning at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, at Integrity Funeral Care, 2901 S. Washington St., Marion, IN. Bill Sparks will be officiating with burial following at Grant Memorial Park.
