Albert "Al" Harold Krause, 69, of Zumbro Falls passed away at Methodist Hospital in Rochester after a long battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on June 26, 2020 surrounded by his loving family.
He was born on May 3, 1951 in Red Wing at St. John's Hospital to Wilbur Carl Krause and Mary Agnes (McVay) Krause-Heins. He grew up in the Mazeppa/Zumbro Falls area and attended Mazeppa High School where he graduated in 1968.

He spent many years of his life driving trucks locally for Raleigh Davis Trucking of Elgin, Road Constructors Inc. of Rochester, Wendt's Trucking of Rochester, and Bob Braaten Construction Inc. of Byron. He enjoyed riding razor, farming, mowing the lawn, and Nascar. Albert was a fan of the Minnesota Vikings and he also loved his children and grandchildren very much.
