"Grandpa K" will be missed dearly. He lived in the same house in East St. Paul his entire 92 years. When we got home from the hospital after he passed, an anniversary and birthday card from him was in our mailbox. Those events are next week, but he always liked to be ahead of schedule. Thank you Grandpa and Rest In Peace, Love Sarge.

Hit and run drivers who are involved with deaths should get mandatory multiple years sentences. This girl tried to take the Amy Senser way out.

What a great life Roy Kromschroeder had! I hope I'm as vital as Roy when I'm 92! We're all sad it had to end too soon. Do they have motorcycles in heaven?

It's nice to see folk reflecting on Grandpa's life. He sounds like quite an interesting fella! His family was fortunate to share his life.

I know this won't even come close to lessening the hurt, but Roy passed on while doing one of the many things he truly enjoyed in this life. He must have really been a really great guy to be surrounded by so many who love him. Peace and best wishes to those who have had the privilege of knowing him. I am sorry for your loss.

This was my dad. He was one of the original good guys, and loved his country, his family and his friends. He wore his WWII Veteran cap with pride and always had a flag flying over his house. He lived every day of his life with honor, and I have never met a better man. We loved him.

92 and still riding! God bless him. Sad but sounds like a vibrant healthy life until the end. He was a lucky guy, many would have traded places I'm sure. Condolences to his family.
