Kenneth Drerup Obituary

Kenneth G. Drerup, 67, of Garrett, Indiana, passed away on Monday, Feb. 19, 2024, at Auburn Village in Auburn, Indiana.

He was born on Jan. 23, 1957, in Auburn, Indiana, to Albert H. and Evelyn L. (Fike) Drerup.

He was a graduate of DeKalb High School.

Kenneth was an industrial electrician for Colwell Inc., in Kendallville, retiring in 2023, after 37 years of service.

He was a member of American Legion Post 178 of Garrett, Garrett Eagles #1357, and was a lifetime member of the Garrett Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Kenneth enjoyed fishing, hunting and golfing. He loved to dance and was very ‘light on his feet’, someone once said. He especially enjoyed Country music. He didn’t know a stranger, and enjoyed spending time with friends and family. Many thought of him as their best friend, and he was.

Surviving are two sisters and their spouses, Judy E. and Roger Watson, of St. Joe, and Anita L. and James Pappas, of Portage; two grandchildren, Ayden Drerup and Avery Drerup, both of Bluffton; six nieces and nephews, Tamara (John) Sims, Regina (Brett) Browand, Tiffany (Chad) Weimer, Bryant (Amanda) Watson, Brett (Brandi) Pappas and Justin Pappas.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and a son, Albert (Albie) Drerup.

Services will be held at 11 a.m., on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2024, at Feller and Clark Funeral Home, 1860 Center St., Auburn, with visitation from 10-11 a.m., on Saturday.
