Rod Krohn

April 20, 1954 ~ November 4, 2021 (age 67)

Tribute

Rodney Bruce Krohn was born to Werner and Margaret Krohn on April 20, 1954 in Twin Falls, Idaho.  He passed away at his home surrounded by his family on November 4, 2021 in Parma, Idaho after a hard fought battle with cancer.

Rod was raised on a farm in Eden, Idaho where he was the youngest of three siblings. He had fond memories of learning to fish while spending time with his Grandma Southwood and Grandpa John. He spent his childhood days learning to bake and cook by watching his mom, and as an adult could often be found in the kitchen cooking up meals and treats of his own. His family was involved in the Trinity Lutheran Church and he graduated from Valley High School in 1972.  He met the love of his life at a wedding, and it was just a short time later that they were walking down the aisle themselves at his childhood church.  He married Bobbi Krumm on November 27, 1976 and they spent the next 45 years walking hand in hand, living out their faith, love, and pouring time into their family.  They welcomed two boys into their lives, Joshua came first and then Jarod was born two years later. Rod always worked hard to provide for his wife and kids and spent his time on the road with Wonder Bread and Frito-Lay, and later with Treasure Valley Coffee while Bobbi kept things together at home. As the boys grew, Rod and Bobbi were actively involved in their church family at Twin Falls Church of the Nazarene where they were members, worked with the youth, taught Sunday school, and made life-long friends through their traveling singing group.  As the boys became men, Rod and Bobbi left their lifelong home in Twin Falls and made the move to Nampa, Idaho.  Rod continued his career with Treasure Valley Coffee where he went on to make an impact and build friendships for the next 23 years.  Rod was a proud father as he watched his boys find love of their own. Joshua married his bride Tausha, and within a couple of months were expecting Rod and Bobbi’s first grandchild.  Jarod was thriving as a student at NNU and had fallen love with his fiancé Kerri.  Tragedy hit and Rod and Bobbi walked the difficult road of burying their youngest son, Jarod.  They spent the next few years clinging to each other and their faith and finding hope as more grandchildren entered their lives.  As the months turned into years and their grandchildren grew,  Rod and Bobbi could be found in a gym cheering on a grandchild, spending quiet time at their home in Parma, or camping and enjoying God’s beauty in the mountains of Idaho with family.

Rod was known by those around him as being a tender man who felt deeply and cried easily.  He had a steady spirit and led his family with integrity and faith.  He will be missed by all who knew him, but his legacy of faith and love will live on through his family and those he loved.  Rod was preceded in death by his grandparents Gerhart and Olga Krohn, his grandmother Mae Southwood and John, parents Werner and Margaret Krohn, his father-in-law Dale Krumm, nephew Scott Mabie, and his precious son Jarod Seth.  He is survived by his beautiful bride Bobbi, his son Joshua and daughter-in-law Tausha, his seven grandchildren Isaiah, Jarod, Noah, Leah, Nahome, Richard, and Tiana Krohn.  His daughter-in-love Kerri Morris and Joshua, and their son Eli.  His sister Terry Mabie and George and his brother Wes Krohn and Joyce.  His mother-in-law Eileen Krumm, sister-in-law Rhonnie Hitesman and Mical, sister-in-law Becci Krumm, sister-in-law Melanie Hensman and Don, brother-in-law Michael Krumm and Jennifer and many, many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends whom he loved. 

Rod’s family is forever grateful to their family and close friends who have loved, supported, and encouraged Rod throughout this past eighteen months.  We cannot thank enough the many doctors and nurses who helped him along his cancer journey.  Countless people within the Deer Flat family and his life group have been a vital part of lifting Rod up in prayer, love, and support.  Most of all, Rod was so very grateful for his Savior who was his comfort and peace throughout his life.  Oh, what a joyous reunion Rod had when he entered heaven’s gate!
