TROY — Jeffrey Krantz Sr., loving partner, son, brother, friend, father and beloved grandfather, passed away on Sunday, Oct. 23, 2022, at the age of 52.

Jeff was born on July 20, 1970, in Worcester, Mass., to Ralph Krantz II and Mary (Godin) Sulkoski.

In July of 2003, Jeff fell in love with Melinda Pelletier and they started a family. They raised five children together, four sons, Jeffrey Jr., Ryan, William and Kory, as well as one daughter, Bobbi.

Jeff enjoyed playing games with family and friends, sitting by a bonfire, and listening to music together. He was known for his wacky sense of humor, his kind heart that was always wanting to help out others even if he didn’t know them, and for his individual style which over the years included a Mohawk, a green beard, and his fedora, just to mention a few. Jeff also spent time drawing, singing and carving.

Jeff was preceded in death by his father Ralph. He is survived by his lifelong love Melinda, his five children, Jeffrey Jr., Ryan, Bobbi and her husband Brandon and their daughter Jordyn, William and his wife Erin and their daughter Rosa, Kory and his husband Anthony, his mom Mary, his stepdad Anthony, his brother Dave and several uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Services will be held at a later date in late winter or early spring 2023.
