John Joseph “Jack” Kroll Jr., 65, of Leavenworth, went home to Jesus and the love of his life on December 30, 2018. He passed at home surrounded by his family after complications with COPD.

Jack was born January 9, 1953 in Leavenworth, Kansas to John Joseph Kroll Sr. and Dorothy Lee (Sanders) Kroll. He graduated from Leavenworth High School in 1971.

Jack was a musician. He loved to play guitar and the country style sincerity in his voice was a comforting sound to those that heard it. His passion for music led him to his lifelong love, Janice C. Barnett. They met at an audition and were married on March 20, 1971. They spent the rest of their lives together, deeply in love.

Jack worked as a heavy equipment operator for Leavenworth County until retiring in 2014. He loved to fish with his best friend and brother in law Danny Lee. He was a proud member of the Bass Club.

Jack is survived by his daughter, Kim Taylor and his “Punkerdoodle”, granddaughter Maddisen Taylor, honorary daughters Jamie Baskas and Danielle Trautman, brothers Marvin (Helen) & Dennis (Joyce) and three sisters Dorothy, Donna (Danny) and Linda, many nieces and nephews, cousins, friends, fur baby RyLee Piper as well as several honorary grandchildren.

Jack was preceded in death by his parents, his beautiful wife Janice, a sister Judy Naipo, a bother Joseph Kroll, brother in laws Rick Hund and Alan Naipo and many family members that are walking the Halls of Memory waiting for him.
