Wayne Krause

July 6, 1974 — September 14, 2023



Wayne Gerald Krause, born on July 06,1974, in Shakopee, MN, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, September 14, 2023, in Navarre, FL.

Wayne is survived by his mother, Dottie Amell Krause; sons, Garrett (11) and Lucas (9) Krause; brothers, Douglas Krause and William Krause (Kim); sister, Karen Hubbard (Kris); nephews, Justin, Mason and Brickey; nieces, Chelsea, Kennedy and McKenzie.

Wayne will also be missed by uncles and aunts (mostly in Minnesota, Wayne’s home state, which held a special place in his heart) and many cousins, friends and loved ones from coast to coast. 

Wayne has joined his father, Neil James Krause (2011), and several other loved ones in watching over all who love and miss them dearly. 

Wayne had many interests, mostly outdoors and he shared these with his children, who were the love of Wayne’s life.  Anytime Wayne talked about them, you could see nothing but pride and love in his eyes.  Wayne was a very special dad that always spent as much time with his sons as he could.

Baseball was always in Wayne’s life. He gave that love of the game to both of his boys, who are currently in travel baseball.  Wayne never missed a game or tournament.  He took his sons to all practices and lessons every week.  Never was there a prouder dad.

When Wayne wasn’t being a super dad, he loved kayaking, fishing, baseball, mountain biking, motorcycles and had a special interest in marine biology. 

Wayne was loved by more than he will ever know. 

The family will receive friends at 5:30 pm, Thursday, September 21, 2023, at Rose Lawn Funeral Home, with the funeral services to begin at 6:30 pm, in the chapel.  Graveside services with honors will be 10 am, Friday, September 22, 2023, at Barrancas National Cemetery.  The procession will leave Rose Lawn Funeral Home at 8:45 am, Friday, September 22, 2023, for Barrancas.
