Obituary for Dr. Norman N. Krieger, MD

Dr. Norman Nelson Krieger, MD, longtime Milford resident, passed away on September 22, 2016 at the age of 89 with family by his side. He was born on May 12, 1927 in Bainbridge, Michigan, son of the late Nelson and Rose Krieger.

After serving honorably as Staff Sergeant on the Manhattan project during World War II, he graduated from Western Michigan University and went on to attend medical school at the University of Michigan. He later met his wife, Teresa Russell, at Cook County Hospital in Chicago during their medical residencies. The couple, married for fifty seven years, moved to Milford in 1960 and purchased their first home on Union Street where he practiced Internal Medicine for nearly 40 years. He was deeply committed to each of his patients and to his family. Dr. Krieger practiced out of Pontiac General Hospital and was instrumental in the founding of Huron Valley Hospital and served as Chief of Staff. He also served on the Huron Valley School Board and as a team physician for Milford High School. He enjoyed farming, fishing, and raised and showed Morgan horses for many years. Dr. Krieger was one of the founders of the original Milford High School Equestrian Team and helped build the original ring used for the competitions. He was a devoted Christian and family man and enjoyed spending as much time with his grandchildren as possible. He especially enjoyed watching University of Michigan football games with them.

He is survived by his loving wife, Teresa; siblings, Adelaide and Joyce; his children, Norman, Teresa (Matthew), Kristen (Michael) and Karen; twelve grandchildren, Christian, Danielle, Leah, Amanda, Antonio, Joseph, William, Dominic, Maria, Vincenzo, Angelo and Alfonso. He was preceded in death by his siblings, Charles, Arlene and Joan and his infant son, Kirk.
