After a short battle, Jason “Big Daddy” Kroll, went to his final resting place on May 24, 2021.
He is survived by his wife Victoria Kroll of 7 years, and their 8 children: Maykayla, Shayna, Matthew, Laela, Linley, Alana, Ellie, and Ryan. Jason also leaves behind his parents: Rod and Sylvia Kroll; bonus parents: Valerie (Randy) Westfall, and Buddy Cook; siblings: Robert (Tanya) Cook, and Valarie Westfall; nieces and nephews: Kortney (Jevin Hauke) Paris, Shelby Cook, Brody Cook, and Bentley Hauke; grandparents: Shirley (Roger VanEren) Earick, and June Pelton; aunts and uncles: Ila Davis, Ruth Reynolds, Sue (Howard) Coleman, Jay (Sherry) Pelton, Jeff Kroll, Tye Kroll; and numerous cousins. On top of his family, he leaves behind a large fire and EMS family; special friends, Aaron (Tricia) Kennedy, Angie Miller, Jason (Amy) Allie and too many more to name. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Clarence Pelton, Jess Kroll, and Dorothy Kroll; aunts and uncles, Mike Kroll, Mary Echelbarger, Clark Reynolds, and Joe Davis; a cousin Tracy Moore, and special friend Cody King.
Jason was a husband, father, son, firefighter, EMT, and foster parent. He wore many hats and did them all with a smile and a love that knew no end. He had a heart of gold and loved his family and friends. He never met a stranger and could talk to anyone. You would walk away a better person for just having met him. If he knew you, you were family. Until we meet again, Valhalla my love.
A funeral service will be held at 10am Saturday, May 29, at the Haller Funeral Home & Crematory with Chaplain Bruce Hines officiating. Burial will follow in Greenlawn Cemetery, Frankfort. Friends may join the family for a visitation from 4-8pm on Friday at the funeral home.
