ENID, Okla. — Lifetime Garber resident Clarence Fredrick Kroll, 90, passed away on Saturday, May 10, 2014, at his home in Garber, Okla., surrounded by his family. He was born Dec. 21, 1923, on the family farm east of Garber, to Ernest and Minna (Goedeke) Kroll.

Clarence graduated from Garber High School in 1941. He was active in FFA in high school and was awarded the State and American Farmer degrees.

He proudly served his country in the United States Army from March 1946 to April 1947, where he was stationed in Japan.

Clarence was baptized and confirmed at Immanuel Lutheran Church, where he served as treasurer and was a member of Men’s Club. He also served on the board of directors of the Garber Co-op and was a member of the Garber Historical Society.

When he could get a break, he enjoyed fishing and attending his children and grandchildren’s sporting events. He enjoyed traveling with Gay to stock shows in Texas, where they had many champions and reserve champions through the years.

He is survived by his brother, Elmer Kroll of Garber; three children, Deanne and husband Ted Bentz of Breckinridge, Okla., Nicky Kroll and wife Georgianna of Garber, Okla., and Monty Kroll and wife Marilyn of Rockwall, Texas; 10 grandchildren, Derrick Bentz, Bethanie and husband Sam Seybold, Paula Powell, Jamie and husband Shelby Klusmeyer, Dusty Kroll, Brian Blaine and wife Windy, Brad Blaine and wife Toby, Candice Kroll, Josie Flowers and husband JD Darrow, and Jamie Flowers.
