Jack Kriha passed away peacefully in his home on September 25, 2019, at the age of 67. Jack was born on May 28, 1952, to Rudolph and Jane Kriha. He attended Omro High School and was also a graduate of the Fox Valley Technical Institute. Jack was a lifelong farmer and worked for several implement dealers before starting his own tractor repair business, Kriha’s Tractor and Equipment Repair. In recent years, he also began selling seed. He was known to work on all makes and models of tractors, but his real passion was repairing and restoring International Harvesters. His sociability, generosity, and wide-ranging mechanical expertise brought him much respect and many friendships within the community, and his presence will be sorely missed.
Jack was preceded in death by both his parents and his nephew, Jeff. He is survived by his sons, Arik of Madison and Brent (Jodi Spanbauer) of Milwaukee, and their mother, Gail of Omro; his brother Jim (Bonnie) of Ripon, and their children Cindy (Matt) Morse of Pickett and Russ of Berlin; his sister Joan (Larry) Walls of Sault Saint Marie, ON, and their children John (Suzette), Alan (Wendy), Jamie (Carrie), and Lesli Ann. He was also succeeded by a number of great-nieces and -nephews, including Weston and Macy Morse, and Kaylee Kriha.
Visitation hours will be available for friends and family at the Kwiatkowski Funeral Home, 425 Jefferson Ave., Omro, Wisconsin, on Monday, September 30, from 9:00 to 11:00am, with funeral services to follow immediately thereafter. Beginning at 12:30, a memorial luncheon will also be held at the Rushford Town Hall.

Sincere Sympathy to Jack's family on his passing. Harold will miss him through phone calls, The Big Tomah Tractor Pull and the wonderful visit we had with him & Lester when they came for Octoberfest 2017. I also remember when I met Jack in 2016 and we camped overnight at his place. He was busy trying to finish planting his vegetable garden, so I helped him. He was so grateful and I was happy to help. God Bless and Thinking of you his family ........ Harold Storie and Clair Huckabone from Ontario, Canada

Heartfelt sympathy to the entire Kriha extended family for the loss of your Dad, Brother, Brother-in-law and Uncle. Joan has shared many stories of her brother over the years. As one farm kid to another, except for his choice of tractors, I think we would have gotten along famously. Sincerely, Wendy Wieland Walls & Alan Walls
