Walter R. Krencicki, age 96, born in Hamtramck, MI on January 8, 1921 passed away May 17, 2017. Beloved husband to the late Henrietta. Loving father to Ronald (Barbara) Krencicki. Dear grandfather to Lisa (Brian) Sanford. Great-grandfather to Michael and Paul.

Walter was a church usher for as long as we can remember; first at Ebenezer Baptist Church, and then at Bethany Baptist. A highlight of being an usher was ushering every night of the Billy Graham Crusade at the Michigan State Fairgrounds in the 1950s.

He was proud of his Polish, Hamtramck heritage. Loved watching football, especially the Center Line High School and the Michigan State Spartans, traveling, and playing in his basement workshop. Walter took great pleasure in putting home movies and family photos on CD.

He worked as a Tool & Die maker at Arnold Tool and retired from Ford Motor Company. Walter will be remembered as an example of a loyal, generous, and giving man who made it his mission to call people on their birthdays, baked cakes for many, and played Santa for dozens of children. He and his stories will be missed by anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Visitation Sunday, May 21 from 4-7pm at Kaul Funeral Home 35201 Garfield, Clinton Township.

Funeral Monday, May 22 at 11am with visitation at 10am at Bethany Baptist Church 19700 15 Mile, Clinton Township.
