Father Edward Leo Krumpelmann, M.M.

Word had been received from New York that Father Edward Krumpelmann, Maryknoll Missioner, died in Minneapolis while home on furlough, aged 67. Since 1966 Father Krumpelmann had been the Catholic Chaplain and Executive Secretary of the Servicemens Guide. Prior to that he did missionary work in the Kwun Tong area.

His first assignment in Maryknoll, after his ordination in 1941, was to the Maryknoll Mission in Kongmoon. In 1947 he returned to the USA to teach at the seminary high school in Mt. View, California. He returned to Hong Kong in 1958. He is survived by a brother and sister.

His work in Servicemen
s Guide, which occupied the last nine years of his life, demanded a limitless store of energy, buoyancy and determination. The shop fronts of Wanchai gave daily witness that the work was necessary, yet it was work offering few moments of priestly comfort. Father krumpelmann, always cheerful and always at the service of Servicemen, met the challenge of his work - ever eager not to be served but to serve.

A Requiem Mass was celebrated on Thursday, 3 July, 5pm, in St. Joseph
s Church, Garden Road, Hong Kong.
