ALAN JOSEPH KRIGGER
May 8, 1903 February 26, 1988

Alan Joseph Krigger was bom on St. Thomas on May 8, 1903 to Ernest
Krigger and Josephine David. Alan was raised in the household of the Henry
O. Creque family and received his education in the public school system of the
Virgin Islands.
During his early years, he worked at the Creque Slip, a local drydock
operation, on Hassel Island and later moved to the Ron Zorro Distillery.
In the early 1950's, he joined the staff of the newly opened Virgin Isles
Hotel in the maintenance area and rose to the position of Chief Engineer,
a position which he held until his retirement. Being a strong believer in the
work ethic, however, he came out of retirement to assist the Sts. Peter & Paul
School in maintaining school facilities.
Alan, hard worker that he was, still found time to play the saxophone
with the St. Thomas Community Band under the leadership of Parris Oliver
Nicholsen, and also played the saxophone and mandolin in various local
orchestras.
He moved closer to the Lord in his later years and became a devout and
devoted member of the Sts. Peter & Paul Cathedral congregation. He served
as an usher and was a member of the Knights of Columbus and other religious
organizations. Additionally, he constantly encouraged relatives, friends, and
other individuals to become more involved in church activities.
Further, while serving in his maintenance capacity at the Sts. Peter &
Paul School, he took a grandfatherly interest in the students. In this role,
he steadily encouraged, cajoled and advised them of the importance of
good behavior, integrity and the need of a good education.
Alan also had a rich and full personal life. On July 31, 1934, he and
Esmie Smith were joined in matrimony. Their union produced nine children.
He was a quiet, loving and understanding husband and father. He was proud
of his children and grandchildren, who are successful in areas as varied as
government service, sports and construction.
During the past few years, illness did not permit Alan to move around
as much as he once did. However, given his jovial spirit, he could not find
it within himself to complain. On Friday, February 26, 1988, the Redeemer
chose to call Alan home. May his long, devoted and hard working life be
rewarded by eternal rest.
