Todd P. Krachey, age 52 of Wauzeka, passed away on Saturday March 31, 2018 at Gundersen Medical Center in LaCrosse, surrounded by his loving family.  He was born on April 15, 1965 in Prairie du Chien.  The son of Paul and Judy (Atkinson) Krachey. He married Crystal Reiger, the love of his life, on November 1, 1997 in Boscobel.

Todd has owned Krachey’s BP in Boscobel since 2004 with his wife Crystal. They often employed high school students as their first job to let them gain experience in the workforce. Todd was an active member of both Wauzeka and Boscobel communities.  Todd was a member of the Wauzeka School Board.

Crystal and family, Each one of you has been in my heart and prayers. Your Dad/husband/grandpa as one of a kind as you all well know. He touched many life’s in many different ways including mine. I spent some time working at the station while going to school and being a Mom, he was awesome at helping me schedule times that worked for both of us and get me through college and for that I am forever grateful. He continued to be a friend from then on. Keep him with you everyday, he will be with you when ever you need him. Prayers and hugs for all of you. Kim and Jim

Todd was a wonderful husband, father, and firefighter and he was a mentor to me on how to really be a loving/ supporting part of the community. I'm so proud to have fought fire with him and the Wauzeka Fire Department and to work on Regional grant projects and training.

I'm so sorry for your loss, he was the greatest of men.

Todd was really good man, he helped out one of my clients with check cashing after the Old National Bank closed in town. No questions, just helpful understanding. The world is lessened losing a man like Todd. My deepest sympathies to his family.

Crystal and family,

Thirty years ago I met Todd playing softball against him and then with him, he was a great guy. There was never a day that he didn't have time to chat and catch up. My sympathy to all.

Coach Dennis Vinger Kickapoo High School

My most sincere condolences to the family of Todd Krachey. As a coach and an official, I have and will continue to have the ultimate respect for Todd. Whenever I came to coach or officiate, he was always at the W-S gym or field with kind, sincere words and always a "hearty smile". He represents the epitome of a true sportsman. He never wanted my teams to beat Wauzeka because he always has and always will bleed Hornet green...but after the game I was ALWAYS GREETED WITH A SINCERE "Good job Coach, you deserved the victory, or your team demonstrated great effort and character in defeat." With all honesty and sincerity, I will miss Todd so much...my life has been better for knowing him...and we have truly lost a quality man of great character and a warm heart! My thoughts and prayers will remain with Todd and his family.
