Damon Krogmeier

February 27, 2000 — January 6, 2019


Damon Michael Krogmeier, age 18, of Kahoka, MO, died unexpectedly early Sunday, January 6, 2019 in a one vehicle accident south of Kahoka on Highway 81.

Damon was born February 27, 2000 in Keokuk, IA, a son of Craig and Sarah Wright Krogmeier.

Damon was home schooled, having graduated in 2017.

Survivors include his parents, Craig and Sarah Krogmeier of Kahoka; grandparents, Dennis and Grace Drummond of Cantril, IA; great-grandparents, Jerry and Karen Drummond of Fort Madison and Dorothy Menge of Jacksonville, IL; his siblings, Alexandra (Kyle) Brothers of Farmerville, LA, Kyle Schmitt of Keokuk, Cory Krogmeier of Kahoka, Callista Krogmeier of Keokuk and Annastasia, Livinnia, Luke and Otylya, all of Kahoka; three nieces, Maribeth, Norah, and Zelie Brothers; aunts and uncles: Donald (Traci) Wright of Fort Madison, Jason (Danielle Ryder) Wright of Kahoka, Christopher (Leah) Krogmeier of Keosauqua, and Wesley (Sylvia) Krogmeier, Aloysius and Thaddeus Krogmeier all of Fort Madison; great aunts and uncles, many cousins, and other relatives.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Leroy and LaVonne Krogmeier; a brother, Jesse, in infancy; and a stillborn sister, Lourdes.

Damon was a self-employed construction worker, working with and driving Amish crews. He had been a hard worker from the time he was a little boy and loved working with his hands. He was a faithful worker as well and would never quit on a job. He was intelligent and if he couldn’t figure something out, he looked or worked until he did.

Damon was of the Catholic faith. He had a deep respect for his faith and attended mass with his family. He was a loving son, brother, and proud uncle. He had a wicked grin that he could infuriate you with or melt your heart. He loved animals and Luke said he was an "animal whisperer". The best gift you could give him was your time.

Damon made friends very easily. He never met a stranger and lived fully every minute of every day. He was extremely positive and couldn’t hold a grudge. He was a wonderful friend to everyone and would help anyone anytime or anywhere.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held Thursday, January 10, 2019 at 1 p.m. at All Saints Catholic Church in Keokuk with burial in Sacred Heart Cemetery in Fort Madison, IA.

Memorials are suggested to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
