Weston

Hans L Kratz, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend, passed away on March 26, 2024. He was born on September 10, 1938. Hans will always be remembered for his kind heart and generous spirit.

Hans led a fulfilling life that touched the hearts of many. He obtained a Bachelor's Degree from St. Peter’s College (NJ) and went on to earn a Master’s Degree from Fairleigh Dickinson (NJ). His dedication to education was evident in all aspects of his life.

One of the most cherished memories of Hans was when he would fill in for Santa at St. Bonaventure Church, bringing joy to countless children with his cheerful spirit. He had a knack for storytelling and would captivate audiences with tales from his own life experiences.

In his free time, Hans found great joy in spending time with his grandchildren. He was their biggest fan and took pride in cheering them on every step of the way. His love and support will forever remain in their hearts.

Hans leaves behind a legacy of love and memories that will be carried on by his surviving family members: his devoted wife, Audrey Kratz; loving daughters Patricia Campagnola, Kathie Schmidt, and Denise Morgan; caring son-in-laws Ken Campagnola, and Mark Morgan; adoring grandchildren Allison Campagnola, Matthew Campagnola, Tyler Campagnola, Terry Schmidt, Casey Ortolani, Randy Schmidt, Lisa Morgan and Michael Morgan; and cherished great-grandchildren Tanner, Serenity, Aspen and Mason. He was predeceased by his son-in-law Ron Schmidt and grandson Mark Campagnola.

His presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. A visitation to honor Hans will take place on April 1st at T.M. Ralph Funeral Home Sawgrass/Weston in Sunrise. A Mass will be held on April 2nd at Saint Bonaventure Catholic Church followed by interment at Our Lady Queen of Heaven Cemetery.

Hans L Kratz's memory will continue to live on through the lives he touched and the love he shared with those around him. May he rest in peace knowing he was truly cherished by many.
