CANFIELD – William “Bill” Joseph Krumpak went peacefully to be with his personal Lord and Savior on Sunday, May 23, 2021, after a relentless and courageous battle with multiple myeloma. We can rest and rejoice knowing that Bill is joyfully in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father.
Bill was born on May 30, 1951 in Youngstown to Mary Watts Krumpak and Joseph Krumpak.
He graduated in 1969 from McDonald’s High School, where he loved playing football and basketball. He has kept many fun memories with McDonald’s family and friends. After high school, Bill played football for Youngstown College and continued to work for Delphi / Packard for 30 years. Upon retirement, Bill worked part-time for the Baird Brothers sawmill for an additional 15 years.
Bill was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. His sense of humor and wit made people laugh everywhere he went. He was a true man of integrity and worked faithfully to serve his family, neighbors and community. He loved all things athletic, riding many miles on the bike path and working meticulously outside in the yard. Most of all, being with his family and friends is what Bill loved and cherished the most. Seeing his sons and grandchildren participating in sports brought him great joy, in addition to coaching his sons’ youth sports teams, being a part of the South Range School Foundation and being a member of Greenford Christian Church. .
Over the past year, Bill bravely fought multiple myeloma with unwavering courage and always trusted in God. He never complained and stayed positive every step of the way. As he left the hospital for the last time, Bill said with confident and steadfast peace, that “He would come home and then go to Heaven.”
Even though Bill faced unimaginable hardships, he also experienced tremendous joys. His fighting strength was unmatched and Bill was able to fight boldly and bravely every day because he confidently knew that the battle had already been won because his victory had been found in Christ Jesus.
Bill was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Mary Krumpak; and stepmother, Shirley Williams.
He is survived by his wife, Diane Krumpak, whom he married on December 22, 1990; sons, Brad (Heather) Krumpak, Josh (Jessica) Krumpak and Cole Krumpak; grandchildren, Ava, Ella, Zane, Juliana, Joshua and Joey Krumpak; her sister, Mary Jo Krumpak and her brothers, Frank Krumpak and Joe (Teresa) Krumpak; stepfather, Charles Williams; sisters-in-law, Betty (Mike) Holliday, Bonnie (Tim) Callahan, Marsha (Tom) Wilson and Joyce Stoffer; as well as several nieces and nephews.
The Krumpak family would like to extend special thanks to Dr Valent and Nurse Schluelter at the Cleveland Clinic, as well as all of the treatment nurses in Taussig and Twinsburg, for their extraordinary efforts and compassion.
