Memorable Manitobans: Ferdinand Frank Kroegel (1871-1947)

Contractor, carpenter, municipal official.

Born in Austria [Poland] in September 1871, he immigrated to Canada in 1891, arriving in Winnipeg around 1901 where he worked as a contractor and carpenter. In 1908, he moved to the Rural Municipality of St. Paul and was a Councillor (1913-1916). He later served as Councillor (1916-1930) of the Rural Municipality of East St. Paul, elected by acclamation all but once, and was as Acting Mayor from January to March of 1930. He and his wife, Theresa “Grazie” Kroegel (1874-1947) had no children. He died at Victoria Hospital on 4 January 1947 and was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
