David John Kronenwetter

Obituary Date: Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Mr. David John Kronenwetter, age 53, of Flowery Branch passed away Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at Northeast Georgia Medical Center.

He had been battling with a terrible disease, ALS otherwise known as Lou Gehrigs, which he was diagnosed with in September 2009. He served in the Army and participated in Desert Shield. After that David was primarily employed building computer networks and engineering digital cable systems.

He is survived by wife, Risa Kronenwetter; daughters, Dorothy Long-McKeever, Melissa McKinney, and Kristy Jistel; and 5 grandchildren. Risa & David met and fell in love in 1992 and married in November 1997 and Risa truly believed they one day would celebrate their 50th anniversary, but ALS stole that time from them. There are not enough words to actually describe what a great man he was. He was brilliant, an amazing husband and son, and a phenomenal father and grandfather. He will be missed by everyone who came to know him and those fortunate enough to truly appreciate the caring man he was.

He is also survived by his father, Gene; step-mother, Pat; sister, Sue; and brothers, Michael and Patrick. In this entire world there is not one person who can ever compare to him. He was sweet, gentle, very loving, and made everyone smile just a little bit more. We were all blessed to have been able to not just know him, but to have his love. We will miss our Papa, father, brother, son and husband forever and always.

Funeral Services will be 11:00 a.m., Monday, February 17, 2014 at Prince of Peace Catholic Church. Father Richard Vu will officiate. The family will receive friends 9:00
