MONROE TOWNSHIP/SAYREVILLE - GEORGE KRALL passed away at the age of 79 on March 13th, 2020 surrounded by loved ones.
George's beautiful life was novelesque- born in 1940 in Herend, Hungary he and his family escaped World War II fleeing to Nettersheim, Germany where they stayed for 5 years. Ultimately, he settled in the United States in 1952 with 4 of his 11 siblings. He resided in Elizabeth and Menlo Park where, George met the love of his life, Linda. George was an incredibly gifted individual - he worked as a tool and die maker at Accurate Machine and Tool Company; as co-owner of the Raritan Bakery in Edison, NJ; and owner of Bilows Bar and Liquor Store in Eatontown, NJ. He and Linda lived in Sayreville, NJ for 43 years. Three years ago, they retired to Monroe Township, NJ.
Defined by his strength, loving nature, generosity, and dedication he lived his life to the absolute fullest. He was an avid golfer, world adventurer, fisherman, and family man. George was the person that everyone went to- he was the shoulder to lean on, the role model, the one to make you laugh, the one to listen, and the advisor. There was nothing that George could not do. His positivity, bright energy, and witty personality will be terribly missed by all.
The memories that George has left his loved ones are rich with love, adventure, and knowledge. He was and will always remain the heart of his family.
Surviving is his loving wife of 59 years, Linda; their children, George Krall Jr. and his wife, Cheryl, Karen Kausch and her husband, Donald, John Krall and his wife, Susan, and Michelle Gross and her husband, Timothy; sisters, Mary Konka and Eva Daugenti and her husband, Gene.
He was incredibly loved by his ten grandchildren, Christopher and his wife, Jessica, Alyssa, Andre, Kimberly, Brianna, Emily, George III, Miranda, Samantha and Sean, and one great-granddaughter, Vivian.

A Eulogy for our Grandfather, George
My Grandfather was a superhero. A super hero by definition is a benevolent individual who rises to the occasion, overcoming hardship in one form of another. Now this rise is not always pretty and neat with a bow on top, but through strength and courage, conquers all. My grandpa came from dirt floors and truly understood what the hungry felt like. My grandpa in his childhood understood devastation and loss, he lost a brother and then the loss of family as the 13 members of his family were dispersed. Today, you would never have known my grandfather experienced this, because my grandpa is a super hero.
He came to the US and learned a new language, learned US school systems, opened up a bakery in his teenage years, and worked harder than anyone I have ever known. He was the American dream, as all superheroes are, as he raised 4 children with a beautiful wife by his side. He raised 10 grandchildren. My grandfather showed love and support like no other person. He was always there for everyone. For the T-ball games, dance recitals, school concerts, graduations, and for the homework. He was there for the financial questions, the break-ups, the life decision making, and advice. He was there for it all, with a smile on his face and a calming demeanor that was enough to tranquilize all of your fears.
My grandpa was the center, the heart, of my family. With a magnetic personality and positivity, where he was, is where we all wanted to be. He was the most kind and generous man. He would take us on family vacations, and dinners, and small adventures. He took in relatives short-term and long. It is truly an honor to even have known my grandpa.
We will miss him more than he could ever know.
It is a true honor to have been taught how to love, the importance of family and friends, the meaning of hard work, the ability to joke through hardship, and more importantly to find the brightness in it.
My grandpa was a through on through super hero to everyone he encountered. These last few months were trying, but he fought with everything he had. Superheroes are wise, allowing them to think clearly amongst chaos. With courage, strength, and love he traded in his cape for wings.
My grandpa lived and saw so much of life. I long to hear one more story, and receive one more hug, but I hope that we can find comfort in knowing my grandpa had the most beautiful life.
Our superhero, our angel, always.
To our beloved American Family,

George is in our thoughts and prayers.
Best wishes from your german Family Krall.
