Claude David Kronfuss, 68
Claude Kronfuss peacefully passed away on January 30, 2018, at his home in Bozeman, MT. He was born on October 27th, 1949, to Denis and Carol Kronfuss. Claude is the second oldest of 12 children in the Kronfuss family. He is preceded in death by his father, Denis and his ex-wife, Evelyn.

Claude grew up in Babbitt, Minnesota, graduating from JFK High School, class of '68. Shortly after graduation, he was in a tragic accident that left him physically and mentally impaired. Despite his disabilities, he loved life, was always positive and never complained. He was famous for telling jokes, beating most everyone in Chess and Checkers, and playing 500 Rummy at a "professional" level. Claude was very proud of his job with the City of Babbitt and prominently displayed his Years of Service Award. He was a member of St. Pius Catholic Church, faithfully attending Mass most every Sunday.

Claude is survived by his daughter, Amanda, his grandchildren, Janessa and Tyler, his great grandchild, Bentley, his mother Carol Kronfuss and his six brothers and five sisters.

Funeral services are planned for June 2018 in Babbitt, Minnesota.
