Educator.

Born at Grigorievka, Russia (now Ukraine) on 20 July 1925, he immigrated to Canada as an infant with his parents, where they settled at Altona. Graduating from high school in 1943, he worked at various jobs until 1946 when he enrolled in the Manitoba Teachers’ College. Between 1947 and 1951, he taught in rural Manitoba and Winnipeg, including service as Principal of New Rosewell School (1950-1951) in North Kildonan. He worked for the CNR Express (1951-?) and was a student at United College before returning to the classroom as an English teacher at Nelson McIntyre Collegiate (1957-c1970), where he went on to be Vice-Principal (c1970-?). He was later the Principal of Queen Elizabeth School (c1972-1980) and Superintendent of the Norwood School Division (1980-1987). On account of poor health, he resigned the position and returned to Nelson McIntyre Collegiate as a Librarian (1987-?). He married fellow educator Irene Lubosch on 3 November 1961 and had seven children. He died at his Winnipeg residence on 28 January 2001 and was buried in Brookside Cemetery. He is commemorated by the Jacob Krueger Library and Resource Centre at Nelson McIntyre Collegiate.
