A Farewell For My Friend G. Michael Krohmer: R.I.P.

 

Fellow A's fans, today I carry a heavy heart and am deeply saddened by the passing of my friend George Michael Krohmer, who left this world much too soon at the age of 44. He was my former boss, friend, and a diehard A's fan! Back in July of this year he was diagnosed with cancer in his esophagus and managed to fight it till this last few weeks, until his body finally gave way.

He was a very funny and outspoken man, kind hearted, gentle, and we shared a favorite Athletic in one Justin Duchscherer. He often would chime in on all things A's and would occasionally lurk on AN, even though I don't think he ever signed up for an account. "Krohmer", as he was known to all who knew him, was a native of Texas, and was also a huge Oakland Raiders & Dallas Mavericks fan. He is survived by his wife and daughter. I will miss him dearly and this world & upcoming season will not be the same without him.

 

Rest in peace my brother and may your journey into the next realm be fulfilling...

 

Respectfully-Martin' Vincent Rodriguez
