Obituary

Velma - Graveside services for Mr. Kris Dale Kreiger, 80, of Velma is scheduled for 2:00 PM Thursday Jan. 14, 2021 at the New Velma Cemetery with Pastor Kerry Glasgow officiating. Everyone attending service is respectfully asked to please wear a mask due to COVID-19. Services are under the care and direction of Alexander Gray Velma Chapel.

Mr. Kreiger was born on Sept. 26, 1940 at Washington to the late Mr. Paul "Snooks" Kreiger and Mrs. Mary Charlotte (Brickel) Kreiger. He departed this life on Wed. Jan. 6, 2021 at his home in Velma.

Kris grew up in the Cox City/Bray area where he spent his early years on his grandparents’ farm. He graduated from Bray-Doyle High School in 1958.

Working primarily in the oilfield, Kris was employed by Koch Gathering for many years. He also co-owned Combest Construction and later owned KC Auto Parts in Velma. He eventually retired from Bullet Energy Services in 2014.

Kris got the biggest thrill when racing and working on cars. He raced in many circuit and NHRA events in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He was known for his love of speed and his ability to fix anything. Fixing up old cars and trucks was his passion, most recently completing a rebuild of a 1957 Chevrolet.

Kris married the love of his life, Jennette Lawrence Hays, on May 9, 1980, and they lived in Velma all 40 years they spent together. They shared a love for cars, basketball, traveling and time spent with family and friends. They were the happiest when supporting any event their grandchildren participated in.

Kris was a member of The Velma Baptist Church, and he shared his love for cars with others as a member of The Duncan Antique Car Club.

Kris was preceded in death by his parents; and his uncle Bud Brickel.

Survivors include his loving wife Jennette of the home; children, Mike and Sammy Kreiger, Kristi and Lynn Logue, Chris and Leslie Hays and Kerri and Ty Cooper; grandchildren, Casey and Sara Hays, Crystal and Joey Snow, Brian and Tara Kreiger, Whitney and Jamie Broussard, Shelby and Chance Bridges, Kylie Pethoud, Kelsie and Cody King, Kassidy and Dalton Gore and Taycee Cooper; 11 great grandchildren; sisters, Selma and Doyle Brookings and Clarese and Lynn Harmeyer; cousins, Bob Hill and Bill Hill; brother in law, Alton Lawrence; numerous other family and friends.

Casket bearers Mike Prater, Tom Saville, Keith Johnson, Shan Files, Dwight Duncan and David Bridges.

Honorary Bearers are the grandchildren.
