Dennis J. Kral, 75 years, Placerville, CA was welcomed into heaven on Sunday, March 18, 2018. He is survived by his wife Jane, sons James and Robert, daughters in law Lynn and Vicki, grandchildren Amanda, Branden, Skyler and Emma and the many friends that he considered family. His passing was sudden, unexpected and peaceful. The life of Dennis J. Kral can best be described as a love story after meeting his life-long partner and wife Jane Louise Wheeler in 1959. They married two years later in 1961. He passed in a serene setting at his favorite place along the banks of Weber Creek in Placerville, CA. Dennis was born in Santa Rosa, CA in 1942 and remained a resident thereof until moving to Placerville in 2010. He regularly proclaimed that this was his favorite place in the world and that he should have moved here years ago. He could normally be found aboard his tractor, or cruising around the property on the "putt-putt." He relished in the perpetually expanding wood pile and loved to tinker in the corner of the garage. There will be no service or memorial. In-lieu of flowers or gifts, please send a donation to your local animal shelter. No one expected Dennis to pass so suddenly and we all continue to look back hoping to catch a glimpse of him watching in adoration. We will think of him every day and miss him forever.
