Darold Louis Krieger, 88, passed away Monday, August 30, 2021, surrounded by family. Darold was born February 28, 1933, in White River, South Dakota to John Lewis and Helen Hollinger Krieger.  Darold is the oldest of eight children.  Dad’s younger years were spent in South Dakota where he grew up going to school in a one room schoolhouse with all his siblings and cousins from kindergarten through 6th grade.  At a young age, dad and some of his siblings would set traps to catch skunks so they could sell the fur. One day on the way to school they checked the traps and had a skunk. They headed into school and as soon as their teacher caught wind of them they were sent home. In 1946 his family left South Dakota and moved to Burley, Idaho where he graduated from Burley High School.  After high school he was drafted into the Army. He served at the end of the Korean War as a Military Police officer.  In 1955 he married his sweetheart, Rose Okelberry.  They lived in Twin Falls, Idaho, and later moved to Burley. They loved to ride horses, gardening, and spend time with their children and grandchildren.  He served on the Pomerelle Ski Patrol for many years. He loved taking and teaching his children and grandchildren. He loved his years serving on the Ski Patrol.  After Rose passed away you could always find him at one of his grandkids sporting events, he loved watching and cheering them on! He worked for the telephone company for almost 44 years.  He was well known as the “Telephone Man”. He was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ.  He loved the gospel.  After retirement he and Rose served two summer missions in Cody, WY.  Our loving father is survived by their five children, Terry (Heather) Krieger of Springville, UT, Tamara (Mike) Patterson of Paul, ID, Michael (Alane) Krieger of Rexburg, ID, Debra (Mike) Searle, and Nichole (Kyle) Searle both of Burley, 23 grandchildren and 31 great grandchildren; His siblings, Warren (Clara) Krieger of California, Yvonne (John) Weimer of Heyburn, ID, Clarice Leslie of Paul, ID, Harvey Krieger of Kimberly, ID, Larry (Sandra) Krieger of St. George, Ut, Kay Rehn of Twin Falls, ID and Karen (Paul) Walker, Reno, NV.  He is preceded in death by his wife Rose and his parents.

He was so Very kind to me and i will cherish our visits always. I will miss him ordering bacon from me. He would say he had to have bacon when the grandkids came over. I would drop off the bacon and it always took at least an hour to leave and that was ok. I dearly loved him. He Was always so grateful for everything and everyone. He was a true friend and our love to all the family. May you cherish those memories always. He would tell me how much he loved and missed Rose. What a joyful reunion. Driving by his house will never be the same. all our prayers on behalf of the Clegg family.
